Build my bedroom help.

I'm moving into a new place for school soon and wanted some help with making my room better. I don't usually hang out in my living room, I'm either gone or in my room.

-I usually roll with colored Christmas lights on the ceiling. I don't like bright light
-I'm planning on picking up a new 32 inch tv. Lesson learned after I gave my last one to the ex when I moved out.
-Is there a decent easy to set up surround sound or what the hell ever to go with the TV? Dont need anything crazy and I'm looking for bang for buck
-Mini fridge... Depends how cheap I can get one. Prob for booze anyway.

Any ideas would be great. I plan on using my TV set up to play my iPod as well. The roommates are lame so I won't be bumping tunes hardcore.

What are you? 5? Go to IKEA and get yourself a decent light with a dimmer.

Don't forget to sign up for Amazon Prime. Free shipping on everything for a year, as long as you are student.

Or check Target, WalMart, Home Depot, Lowe's or any other home improvement or office supplies store. They have ton's of shit in any price range. IKEA has an on-line store. Or check CraigsList. Shit is cheap there.

honestly for bang for the buck, and for simplicity. there's some soundbars out there that work quite well as well. Obviously not anything insanely good, but cheap and clean.

My room is small, that's the only issue. I don't think I need anything potent.

That's what I'd do too.

Lose the Christmas lights.
