7 Tips on Organizing Your Dorm Room ...


Organizing your dorm room can seem like an impossible task.

You see shoes all over the floor, makeup all over your desk, and you just found some type of moldy sandwich under your bed from that dorm party you had a month and a half ago.

There are holes in your cereal boxes.

You think you might have a mouse.

There’s a hot guy coming over this afternoon and your room is a disaster.

First, throw that nasty sandwich away.

Next, take a deep breath and read these 7 tips on organizing your dorm room!

1. Stackable Bins

Stackable Bins

Stackable bins are a vital tool when organizing your dorm room.

When I dormed I had four big bins under my bed.

They were for school supplies, dry food, shoes, and out of season clothing.2

They are a great way to keep things organized and to keep your room clutter free.

2. TupperWare


If you have a fridge, put everything that is edible in sealed Tupperware.

Screw plastic bags.

If you live in a college dorm your main concern is that mice don’t get into your food.

Tupperware seals the smell of the food in.

Keep your cereal in Tupperware as well.

It’s also a lot easier to see everything in your fridge when it is in plastic boxes, instead of everything being thrown on top of each other.

3. Shelves


If you are allowed to hang shelves on your wall, do it.3

You can put all of your knick knacks and picture frames on them.

If the shelves are wide enough, you can even put your shoes on them so you’re not fumbling around in the dark over your heels.

Brilliant, yes?

4. Hangers


Hangers are a college student’s best friend.

When I was dorming I had a wardrobe, which was a new experience for me, considering I came from a house with no closets at all.

You will save so much space if you don’t have to get a dresser.

Hang up as much as you can!
