The beginning of the semester is the perfect time to add that new kick to your good ol’ dorm room. If you’ve been looking to take those cinderblock walls to the next level without spending a dime, we know just the place: Craigslist. You can find everything you ever wanted — and things you never knew you wanted until now — on the “free stuff” page of Rhode Island Craigslist. (Ed. Note that there is one Craigslist page for all of Lil Rhody. Cool.)
Scrolling through the postings is also prime entertainment while you’re bored in lecture—who knew we had such creative people in RI? To help you out, we’ve put together a selection of offers you might want to look into to spice up your dorm room, and your life:
1. Bored of your desk chair? Two words: Tire swing.
2. You need something warm and fuzzy in your dorm room, and this cat needs a home. Just hope it doesn’t piss… you off. (And don’t tell ResLife).
3. We’re just as confused as you, but we’re sure this could come in handy.
4. It’s too cold to go out into nature, so bring the nature into your dorm room — for free! Well, if you have a chainsaw and some lumberjack friends.
5. Perfect for that tropical-themed party you’ve always wanted to throw. We’re not sure how much sand is in “16 yards,” but we hope it’s enough to fill your sandbox.
6. We’ve heard that the Sayles Organ has been looking to adopt a baby organ; someone make this happen, please.
7. Finally! We’ve been looking everywhere for these soffit vents.
8. You’ll never have to steal a plate from the Ratty or wash a dish again.
9. Make sure it’s a good headshot! You wouldn’t want to pass up the opportunity to own this chair. Do you really deserve it, though?
10. Weren’t the lucky winner for the chair? Fortunately there are some alternatives, if you’re willing to drop a few bucks. This Loving Family Dollhouse is perfect for those barbies you still play with.
11. Lastly, here’s something actually awesome that won’t cost you any money. Go pick it up before we do.
