This is the kind of door I have.


But I don't know what's an effective way to soundproof it.

As much as possible I don't wanna spend much money that could reach $20 and above.

I don't have that much budget

    You really can't soundproof a lightweight door.

Suspend a heavy rolled-up quilt (get it from a flea market or discount re-seller) above the door. When you are inside, unfurl the quilt so it covers the entire door and frame. probably your best option for the money you are willing to spend.

  • Tacked on inch thick styrofoam is another option. The pink stuff can be had cheap at a home supply store. Feb 23, 2016 at 19:05

Thin weather-stripping applied to the top & right side door stop moldings & to the left door jamb beside the door stop molding. Frost King's 3/8's Triple Rib self adhesive stuff works great. Sound transmission is largely stopped when air transmission is stopped.
