When you are ready to move into the dorm it’s all about finding enough space to store everything. So you have to be creative. This means thinking outside the box so that all of the must have items you need can be kept in the room. Below are several creative storage ideas.
Under Bed Bookshelves
Have you ever considered putting your bookshelves under your bed? This is a great way to create the storage space that you need. Depending on the type of bookshelves that you purchase they will be easy to lay sideways and slide under the bed. Then you can place your books, and all of your must have items under the bed. This gives you a lot of extra storage space that you are certainly going to need.
Back of the chair space saver
These items are affordable and give you a lot of extra space. You can store all of your small accessory items in them like your calculator, pens, and pencils, and post it notes. Of course the best part is that you can easily hang this on the back of your desk chair. It keeps things neat and organized at the same time. You should be able to find this at your local Walmart store.
Closet Shoe Organizers
I’m sure you have seen these items lots of times. You hang it in your closet and you can use it for your shoes, or for towels, washcloths, and whatever else will easily fit in the space. You can line up several of these next to each other to give you adequate space. If you are sharing a closet, this will really help.
Organizing your toiletries is certainly a good idea. This is basically a little box where you can store a towel, a washcloth, and whatever other items you can store in the box. Basically those items that you will need to use every morning. It really makes sense to have them in a box, so that you can just grab them when you get up and head to the rest room. This saves you time since you will not have to search for your soap, your towel, and all those other little things. You will be surprised at how much time you can save already having the items together.
A storage ottoman is perfect, since not only does it create a space for you to store items, but you can also use it as a seat. You are bound to want to have your friends come hang up in your dorm room, and it’s nice to have additional places to sit, even though most of your friends would have no problem sitting on the floor.
