Summer is coming to an end and back-to-school season is upon us. As you prepare to head off to college, you may be looking to spruce up your space a little bit. Whether you spend all your free time in your dorm or you only manage to make it back to sleep, it's always nice to keep things clean and cozy. However, we know dorm room essentials can get pricey and as a student -- or a parent -- you're probably on a tight budget. Thankfully, some of your favorite stores are offering coupons and deals to help you get exactly what you need this semester.

Walmart believes in saving money and living better, and right now the company is offering dorm room essentials for under $30. There are chairs, storage ottomans, blankets, lamps and even bookshelves all available for less than $30. But if you have a little more money to spend, the Mainstays Traditional Loveseat Sleeper is a great dorm addition to consider. It'll provide extra seating whenever you have company over and it doubles as a bed if your company refuses to leave.

Ashley Furniture is offering 20% off home office furniture, and you can totally take advantage of these savings. Sure, you're not technically shopping for your home office but you will probably need many of the same things for your dorm room. For example, an Otaska 42-inch desk. It's a corner desk -- which is perfect for a small space, like your dorm room. It's also only $152 with the code OFFICE20.

Target, or "Tarjay" if you're fancy, is usually the go-to for many students because of its affordable prices. And right now, those prices are even lower and you can furnish your dorm with items for as low as $25. You can get everything from seating to lighting and storage organizers. If you're looking for a decent chair for your desk then consider the Room Essentials Comfort Office Chair for just $85.

If you're really into organizing, Wayfair is your best option. Right now, you can get up to 35% off during the storage and organization sale. Wayfair has something for all your organizing and storage needs -- from closet systems and bookcases to ottomans and storage benches. And speaking of storage benches, a faux leather bench by Warwickshire is on sale for $150, which puts it at almost 40% off the original retail price.

And of course, you can't go back to college without bedding to keep things cozy this semester. If you're looking for good quality bedding at affordable prices then Bed Bath & Beyond -- formerly -- is the place for you. Get a super soft four-piece bedsheet set from $27.19. If that's not your vibe, there are many, many other colors, styles, and price points -- and we think you're sure to find something you love.
