It’s back to school time, and you know what that means…dorm room shopping! I am six years out of college, but I still love the solutions for small spaces that make dorm living a little easier. Here is a round-up of some of the items I might pick if I was heading back to school this fall:
This cork board is slightly more interesting than your typical bulletin board – great for pinning your class schedule, your subway ticket, or any other small items you need at arm’s length.
Having a designated place for everything is the best way to stay organized so you can focus on what matters most: hanging out with friends. I mean…studying?
When it comes to small spaces like dorm rooms, it’s important to find pieces that are stylish and functional – this toothbrush holder definitely fits the bill.
Keeping important documents organized – such as financial aid or banking information – helps you keep your finances in order while you’re in school. This colorful desktop file is an affordable way to keep your paperwork handy and orderly.
It can be hard to find twin XL bedding that is stylish, but Dormify.com has made it their mission to offer bright, chic, modern designs to inspire college students to explore and express their personal tastes. I am loving the ikat trend, so this is the bedding I’d choose.
As you can see, almost all of these items are from the Container Store. There are plenty more organizational solutions on their website or in their stores, which are listed here. Remember to incorporate your style while decorating your dorm room for a space that is comfortable and reflective of your personality.
