While futons and milk crates were perfectly fine furnishings in my first dorm room, many recent high school graduates making their way to campus housing are likely looking for more stylish décor options.

As a publisher, both of those scenarios can mean really big business for your website.
A familiar retail space for newlyweds and families on a budget, Walmart is also a haven for underclassmen who want to ensure they can pay for food and basic necessities while having enough funds left over for weekend fun.

I’ve been there before; it wasn’t pretty.
