3 Tips to Organize Your Dorm Room


Although this college semester will be much different than the others, college classes are still in session and you may be one of the few going back to your college campus. If you happen to be that college student, we have three ways you could organize your dorm room in order to set yourself up for success this semester. 



Designate a laundry area

Whether you are rooming in a large room or sharing a small dorm room with another person, designating an area for your dirty clothes and laundry essentials will be game-changing for you. 


A hanging doorknob laundry bag is a great way to make more room for your dirty clothes by hanging them on your bathroom door or even in your closet. You can also use a utility cart to place all of your laundry soaps, softeners, and other essentials. Come time for that interview or a special date, you’ll have all your laundry essentials in place to help you dress for success!



Optimize your closet space and door space

Having a clutter-free space will give you peace of mind knowing that all of your belongings are where they should be. There is nothing more stressful than trying to find those scantrons right before a test. Keeping your dorm room organized can be tough, but it is possible! Consider trying these tips to help you optimize all the possible spaces in your room.


Storage cubes are a great way to organize your books or miscellaneous items. You can even label the storage cubes from the outside so you know exactly what is on the inside. For example, you can label one “English” where you can place all of your books, papers, and testing materials from your English class within that bin. You can do that for each of your classes if you want to be extra organized. If space is tight, maybe you can create bins for classes that require a lot of organization. Being organized with your things will help you focus on studying rather than fretting about a calculator that you have misplaced. Storage cubes are also a great way to store linens, towels, and toiletries!


An Over-the-door Organizer is perfect for organizing things that you need to grab on the go. This is great for school supplies such as scantrons, pens, pencils, calculators, and notebooks. You can also use this organizer for organizing kitchen items or toiletries. 



Use Baskets as storage

If you want to add a decorative touch to your dorm, a woven basket is a way to add that extra touch. Baskets are also a great way to store blankets, magazines, and textbooks right next to your bed. Wicker baskets are one of the higher quality baskets because they are water-proof and durable. Since most woven baskets are Wicker, you can also use these in the bathroom where you can store toilet paper, wet towels, wet bathing suits - anything wet or damp.


A little organization goes a long way. By taking action on these three steps, you will set yourself up for a great, pleasant semester, and on your way to achieving your dreams.
