Yogibo Max (Bean bag) review

Shopping for furniture is a drag, especially when you’re a student. Normally you have two options: shell out big bucks for some nice furniture that may end up ruined after an all night rager, or browse sites like Craigslist and run the risk of inviting who-knows-what into your house after it hitches a ride on […]
