School is quickly approaching and it’s time to start shopping! For Middle School and High School students, there’s no better way to show your geekiness than through your school supplies. For a college kid, it’s all about your dorm room. Purchasing the novelty items that us geeks love so much can be expensive, so we did our best to find things that are reasonably priced. No matter what age or budget, consult this guide when gearing up for this school year.

When it comes to decorating your dorm room, it’s all about the posters! There’s nothing more boring than the standard white cinderblock walls that make up most college rooms, so choosing the right posters is important. This Marvel poster, which is only about $7, features the entire lineup of Marvel characters. It’s colorful and the perfect size for the wall of a dorm room.
While you’re making the trek across campus, it’s important to keep your gadgets protected. This “Live Long and Prosper” laptop sleeve is the perfect pick.
This is the ultimate dorm chair. Gaming, watching movies, listening to music—this chair is specially designed for these activities. It has stereo speakers built into the chair so you can get your own personal surround sound. It looks comfortable enough that you can sit in it all day, or even sleep in it. The best part is the price won’t cause you to go broke before you’ve even taken out any student loans.
Here’s to a geeky 2014-2015 school year!
