Planning for college can be tough, especially when it comes to buying gear for your dorm room. But the new Web site DesignYourDorm.com
can help! The site, which was created by two recent college grads,
allows you to see an onli

Various features let you virtually drag furniture (desks, chairs, beds)
and electronics (iPod speakers, alarm clocks, lamps, etc.) to figure
out the best and most effective use of your space. You'll save tons of
frustration (and energy!) on move-in day, when everyone else is

arranging things ahead of time, you can split up who's buying what. One of you can be in charge of buying the fridge, while the
other takes care of the microwave. You can even buy some of those items right on
DesignYourDorm.com - including funky blankets, comfy chairs, bookcases, even shower shoes - and it can all be shipped directly to your school!
