Dorm rooms are tiny and when you don’t seem to find space for most of your things, things can get real messy real quick. Here are 5 great tips/tools to maximize storage space and avoid clutter that this college student (moi) wishes she had known sooner.
1. Drawer Organizers
Yes, drawer organizers. And no, they aren’t exclusively meant for your forks and knives.
The lack of drawers can be daunting if not kept totally tidy at all times. Which is why these babies are a MUST! They divide your drawers into fitting sections that are challenging to make untidy.
2. Hang Your Shoes
Do not let the foreign concept scare you, let me explain.
Shoes can be a real pain when it comes to keeping a small closet organized plus they get messy if you just leave them on the floor. This over-the-door (and over-the-top) hanging container eliminates the issue altogether. It gives you more closet space and less headaches.
3. Bed Risers + Bins
I swear it works.
Bed risers because otherwise all the space under your bed is wasted. Yes, you can just get some thin bags that fit under there. But with these handy tools you can now fit BINS under your bed. Talk about maximizing storage space.
Plus you can hide them with a very cute duvet.
4. Hang Your Hair Styling Tools
Might as well use the inner sides of your cabinet/closet doors.
These little sturdy gadgets will keep your hair styling tools safely and neatly tucked away. And depending on where you place them, they can always be within reach.
5. Closet Organizers
I love bins. Can you tell?
If your dorm closet only offers a rod that can never fit all your clothes, you should consider getting some bins. You can find some that are specifically made for closets or just use the normal ones.
