You definitely want to avoid any sort of ding-dong that will upset your neighbours and therein strangely lies the solution to the problem.
There are two approaches to solving your problem. You can either treat the room or you can treat the source.
The first would be costly and as you have little or no money to spend on acoustic treatment it does not represent a practical way forward for you.
So what if you treated the source--your alarm clock--and changed 'hell's bells' for 'good vibrations'.
Surf the net using the three magic word phrase 'alarm clock deaf' and I know you will find a vibrating alarm clock that will match your pocket and guarantee your neighbours long nights of 'California dreaming'.
