Ugly wall-to-wall apartment carpeting got you down? Landlords, decorating troglodytes that they are, frown upon our helpful offers to pull that industrial nastiness up for them. Reach a compromise that won't screw your deposit by covering up with a couple of these Zigzag Rugs ($39-79). Available in a range of fun colors, they're also super cheap as rugs go, so you can keep saving for your down payment on a place with wooden floors.
