Dorm Necessities 1 - General Organization

A lot of people may be in attendance to college/university this fall for their first year & some may be staying in a dorm. Here are a few items that would be ideal & great to keep in your dorm room. Dorms aren't the largest, but they are enough to fit some of these items! This post is mainly about storage. Their will be a separate post on desk organization. Remember, organization is key. I may be doing more posts dorm-related, so if you're going into a dorm, be sure to be on the look out!
Hangers/Folded Clothes:
Most dorms provide a closet to put your clothes in. Folding your clothes will give you far more space then if you were to put all of your clothes into hangers. I recommend putting your most worn clothing pieces into hangers & folding the clothes that you wear "not as much."
Shoes:
Try to keep your shoes on the "low." If you visit your parents often, try switching shoes out instead of bringing all of your shoes (that is, if you have a large collection).
Makeup/Hair Products:
The classic drawer storages don't take up a huge amount of space so stuffing them with your makeup/hair & even your health goodies should be convenient. If you want the drawer storages more organized, get small little bins/sectionals & put them into each drawer so things are easier to access if you're in a hurry.
