Create a Cozy Bedroom
2. Make your bed as comfy as possible. This is one place that it's important not to skim; now by no means does this have to equal a lot of money, but it does equal more time. I love pillows, so for me having my bed cozy is equal to having more pillows than your average bed. In the saving money department you can mix patterns with solids, add a cover to your existing pillows or even make your own pillow covers to allow your room to reflect more of your personality.
4. Organize the clutter. I have a bad habit of using my desk chair as a catch all, but if you can organize and know where every item in your room should go it becomes more likely that you will want to keep them in their designated spots. I actually just made a closet shoe organizer and it makes me that much happier to go into my closet!
6. Lighting! When I really want to feel cozy in my room I read before bed with my side table lamp on instead of my ceiling fan. I know this may sound odd, but try it sometime. Even changing one light can change the feel of a room. I still use my overhead lighting most of the time, but some times it's nice to have the other options of a side table lamp or lighting candles.
