6 College Dorm Space Savers You’ll Love
June 24, 2022
2. Upgrade Your Vertical Space
There’s only so much floor space, but there can be a lot of wall space. So, while you’ll want to show your style and put your favorite posters or other wall art on your packing list, you should also use that space for dorm storage. Consider a skinny shelving unit to hold everything from electronics to grooming supplies and a mounted wire shower caddy to corral your college school supplies.
5. Unpack, Then Repack
Your suitcase that is. Once you’ve taken out your clothes and your other college dorm essentials, you can repack it with things you won’t need as often, like out-of-season coats and boots or extra towels. The luggage can then be stowed under your bed or on the floor of your closet, so it’s out of sight but easily accessible.
6. Follow the Rules
This relates to saving space in your dorm only because you don’t want to have a problem when you’re ready to move out. Before putting up any dorm storage supplies on your college packing list, it’s smart to read the school’s policy about hanging things or decorating your room. To be on the safe side, almost every college school supply list should include damage-free hanging strips that will make moving storage items a breeze at the end of the school year.
