Contest: Best Roomie Wins a New Room from T.J. Maxx

[Note: We’re not taking any more entries, but head on over and vote for who you think is the best roommate out there!]

Has anyone ever stared up at you from their bed, mascara smeared across their eyes from crying over that boy, and insisted that you’re the best roommate ever?  Whether you cook a mean tray of celebratory A+ brownies or generously hand over the remote to indulge the roomie’s Project Runway addiction, we know you’ve got some stellar credentials.  Want a little payback for being the best, most coolest, absolute funniest person to live with?  Well, here’s your chance to shine…and win some amazing prizes while you’re at it!  Simply tell something you did for your roommate (or that she did for you!) that went above and beyond the call of roomie duty.

Up for grabs is a fabulously chic set of dorm decor from the new line of designer merchandise available at T.J. Maxx and Marshalls, which will be awarded to our first place winner.  The wonderful stylists over at T.J. Maxx have selected luxurious sheets, lamps, and room accessories to ensure you’ve got the most fashionable room on your hall.  

How cute is this?! Grand Prize Includes: black or zebra print comforter with green sheets, black fur pillows, black and white reminder board, green picture frame, black shoe holder, zebra print clip board, and green lamp.

Ladies, this is the perfect chance to spruce up that bed (after all, the Nacho Cheese Incident of ’08 really did a number on your duvet) and add some much-needed funk to that white cell you call home.  Second and third place winners will both receive $50 gift certificates also for T.J. Maxx and Marshalls, perfect for selecting new accessories to help restyle your room.

Okay, here’s the challenge:  You’ve got until Friday to tell us something amazing you did that explains why you’re the absolute best roommate a girl could ask for. (Do you sit up all night and listen to boyfriend troubles? Own the Sex and the City box set of DVDs?) We want all the colorful details – the more the better.  Post your submissions (including your name/school!) in the comments section right below this post and Monday, July 19th, we’ll select and post the top six entries.  From there, we’re going to leave it up to you, our fabulous readers, to vote for the best damn roommate.

You wanna win? Make sure to get all your friends to come back here from Monday through Wednesday to vote for you!

Voting will close at 5pm ET on Wednesday, July 21st, and we’ll announce the big winners on Thursday, July 22nd at 3:30 pm ET on Twitter and Facebook!

What are you waiting for?  Tell why you’re the best roommate ever!

Oh, and just a tip from us to you: when you get off the couch and start your Back to School shopping, check out T.J. Maxx and Marshalls. They’ve loaded the stores with major bedding accessory/decorating cuteness. Even better, the prices are low enough (up to 60% off!) that even you – an in-debt college girl – can afford it all. Yay!
