Back-to-school 2010 cool list: 10 must-have chic dorm furnishing bargains

Back to school shopping adds up, especially when trying to make a dorm room feel as homey as possible. By taking advantage of every inch of room and staying organized (and of course caffeinated), your school year will surely start on the right foot. Use the following ten deals to cut back on shopping expenses and transform your dorm from meek to chic.

1. Futons, a college essential, save space in crammed dorms. Use it as a couch or a bed for friends to crash on. Target's black sofa bed for $100 takes up half the space that a normal sized futon does, making it a perfect fit for college dorms. It's simple, modern look matches any style. Well worth it, especially since Target gives 10% off to customers who spend $100 on college gear.

2. Adhesive hooks that stick onto the walls help expand limited closet room. Unlike nails, these sticky hooks won't put holes in the wall that could later result in fines. Use them to hang accessories such as ties, purses or jewelry. With these coupons, save $1 on hooks at 3M's Command Brand.
