1. Nothing

We may plan to catch up on all of the school work that we have procrastinated all semester long, but the truth is what most of us really need to catch up on is rest. There even may be some professors who love to sit back and watch the world burn who will still assign homework over break, but we all know that we'll probably put that off until the last minute like everything else too. As long as it gets done is all that really matters to be honest. Happy Thanksgiving!

When you're redecorating your bedroom, you might not think to stop by Five Below, considering everything is $5 and under. But you would be amazed at what you can find in that store.

I went not to long ago to get those cube storage boxes, that go into the shelf, and I left with almost $200 worth of stuff. Now mind you, I've been to this store a million and one times and never have spent this much, but while I was there I figured I would get Easter basket things for my niece and then the idea to redecorate dorm rooms popped into my head as I was looking around. Because let’s be real we all could use a more modern dorm....even if you school just bought new furniture. So here’s 12 things you need to buy from Five Below to modernize your dorm.

1. Wall shelves
