It’s that time of year again — back to school season is in full swing and we’re here to help you design the smart college dorm room of your dreams. Creating a healthy, functional space can work wonders for your well-being and productivity, so finding the right additions for your room is key. What student doesn’t want cool, multi-purpose furniture and decor at budget prices? Thanks to our friends over at IKEA , we’re giving away a $500 shopping spree at the Scandinavian megastore for one lucky winner to deck out their dorm room. Fancy a wireless charging nightstand that can power up your phone without cords? How about a standing desk ? Or even a sleeper sofa ? Enter below to score everything you could possibly need for your dorm room this fall. a Rafflecopter giveaway Navigating a new school year can be both exciting and stressful, so keeping your personal space organized, functional and pleasant to be in can make all the difference in your life. IKEA’s new 2016 line is full of furniture and decor aimed at making student life in the Digital Age more streamlined, more ergonomically advanced, and more multi-purposed. We all know that one can spend hours scouring the various levels of the superstore, so we’ve narrowed down a few suggestions to get you started. Once exams hit there’s not a lot of free time, so simplifying your life as much as possible is of ultimate importance. Keeping your gadgets charged is obviously an important issue in terms of organization, and if you can just drop your electronics on your nightstand to charge, that makes life so much easier. IKEA’s new wireless charging furniture series is super high tech, and we love this double-duty RIGGAD wireless charging lamp . This LED work light instantly charges your smart phone just by setting it on the lamp base. Phones that support wireless charging will work seamlessly with it, and if you don’t have a phone with those capabilities, you can purchase the VITAHULT wireless charging cover . Continuing the theme of high-tech furniture, the SELGE nightstand is another awesome double-duty piece for wireless charging. Need to charge your phone in a hurry and don’t know where the charging cable is? Just drop your phone on your nightstand before you go to bed. We love the idea of eliminating cords and wires, and this cute little piece of furniture does the job well, while keeping your gadgets charged up. Everyone needs bedding for the college dorm room, and instead of splurging on artwork for your walls you can kill two birds with one stone by choosing a dynamic duvet cover that doubles as art. We dig this vibrant BOLLTISTEL Duvet cover and pillowcase set made with a sateen-woven lyocell and cotton that exudes a modern aesthetic without the hefty price tag. It’s well known that standing desks are good for your health and that they can even prolong your life , so creating a place to alternate between sitting and standing during long study sessions can make a huge difference. This 5-sided BEKANT standing desk made with a birch veneer top and a black base sports an easily adjustable design that helps to keep you active while you study and work. For times when you just need a break, the Nilserik Standing support will transform your Bekant Standing Desk by giving you a spot to rest. At under $50, this brightly colored stool is one of the most wallet-friendly ways to add options to a small space. Need a place for friends or family to crash when visiting? This minimalist BALKARP sleeper sofa instantly accommodates guests, and at only $89.00, it won’t dig into your gift certificate very much at all. If the previous sleeper sofa doesn’t do it for you, check this one out. The clever LYCKSELE LÖVÅS sleeper sofa pulls out from below the sofa cover to reveal a double bed folded underneath. It comes in this mod black and white print, as well a variety of different eye-popping shades to give your room a little color. One thing everyone can use more of in tight spaces is extra storage, and the TRONES cabinet elegantly hides an ample amount of space to stow away shoes, gloves and scarves in an entryway. Staying organized at school means having an accessible and clutter-free workspace at home and these beautiful Hejsan magazine files made from 80% recycled paper will do just the trick. Store textbooks, binders, and notes in them and add a super affordable pop of color to your room. The handy HÅRTE LED work lamp plugs right into the USB port of your computer or any ordinary outlet, providing eco-lighting whenever or wherever you need it. Want to encourage your roommates to use less water? The charming TVINGEN shower curtain provides a subtle message to anyone stepping in for a rinse to be mindful of their water usage. Check out all this and more over at IKEA.com and start designing your dream dorm room. + IKEA

It’s almost that time of year again. Where did summer go? As the kids start heading back to school, everyone is feeling both stressed and excited, so one of the most important things parents can do is to ensure they are getting a good night’s rest. One major things that can prevent healthy, restorative sleep is a bad mattress. Nowadays, conventional mattresses are chock-full of harmful toxins that prevent us from sleeping well, not to mention make us sick. Did you know that most standard, non-organic mattresses contain threatening levels of synthetic flame retardants laced with VOCs (volatile organic compounds)? These toxic off-gassing chemicals easily collect in dust, remain circulating throughout your home for years, and are correlated with a myriad of health issues, including allergies, asthma, hormone disruption, endocrine problems and in some cases, cancer. Fortunately, there are safe mattresses on the market that are supportive, made with natural materials, and comparable in price to conventional ones. And if you’re in the market for an organic mattress right now, you’re in luck. Thanks to Naturepedic , you could win a brand new, 2 in 1 Organic Ultra cotton twin mattress just in time for the new school year. Naturepedic’s beds are made with the finest certified organic cotton, and pass all Federal flammability standards without the need for flame retardants. If you’re a parent, student, or know someone deserving of this precious gift, enter to win below! HOW TO ENTER: 1. Sign up for the Naturepedic newsletter here > 2. Leave a comment below telling us why you want to win a Naturepedic 2 in 1 Organic Ultra cotton mattress, and what you love most about the mattress.
