DIY Room Acoustics Newcomer Help/Advice

I'm starting to invest in treatment in my bedroom and i need some help on what areas to cover in my room. I just got a job so i will be getting paid probably in the next two weeks or so. I'm a college student who is living at home at the moment. I want to DIY my acoustics. I ve herd they are very effective and easy on the pockets. I keep hearing about 703 cowing or something like that. I really am trying to find if someone could walk me through this process so i can achieve a great sound in my room instead tweaking eq all day and getting the same muddy mixes over and over again. Thanx in the mean time. I really appriciate this

Room=11.5x11.5 and from floor to ceiling it's 95 inches( i would like to make some sort of bass trap for all four corners of my room about 95 inches high to cover all)

if pics needed let me know please, im just really trying to do what i was told in the beginning, TREAT MY ROOM!

You're welcome to post photos, but the suggested treatment will be more or less the same regardless. As explained in that article, what you need are bass traps in corners and absorbers at the reflection points. If you want to read something more detailed than that short introduction, try this:
