What did you spend on dorm room stuff for freshman?

I'm curious what everyone thinks is a normal price to pay for supplying a freshman's dorm room. I'm talking bedding, shelving, etc.... Not books, tuition, and stuff.
1. $0 - $100
2. $101 - $300
3. $301 - $600
4. $601 - $1000
5. >$1000

Just let me know what your thoughts are. My wife just spend way more than I thought and I'd like to see how much of a jerk/tightwad I'm being....LOL

I will keep a watchful eye on this in prep for this journey this time next year. Is your freshman a male or female? Something tells me that variable will change the answer.

Many variables here, room size, what college already provides and cost of living but #3 for us

I think for the handful of things I needed, I was in the 300-600 ramge. mini fridge, microwave, kurig coffee maker are what put me there, everything else i got cheap from wal mat/target. Sheets, mattress protector condom thingy, etc is all so incredibly cheap.

The real determining factor is the gender of said freshman.... Because some TCU sorority mom paid me and my buddy a few hundred to just hang pictures in her daughters room lol

2 girls in college - option #4. Between coordinating linens, window coverings, rug, pillows, pictures, frames, hanging lights and lamps, appliances, it goes on and on...heck it could be #5.
My sister sent her 2 boys off to Virgnia Tech with their clothes (mostly Mossy Oak camo, and a few hoodies) in a duffel bag, WalMart sheets and towels...she's in for maybe $100 LOL.
