8. Bed risers will help you create space under your bed for storage!


9. Buy plastic drawers for socks, underwear and knick-knacks because usually the room doesn’t come with enough storage on its own.

11. Get a portable container for your toiletries — especially if you have a community bathroom.


12. Make sure you have a fan if your dorm doesn’t have A/C!

13. Turn your used wine bottle into a jewelry holder!!

14. Use plastic cups to organize small random things (otherwise they get EVERYWHERE) and you never find them! Thought Catalog Logo Mark
