  1. Use Space Saving Hangers to Fit More Clothes: This has been a game changer to help me fit all my clothes in my closet. I don’t go home often so I bring clothes for the whole school year which means I need to pack all of the seasons. 
  2. Keep Binder Clips to Keep Chargers in Reach: Clipping the chargers to the corner of your desk keeps them easily in reach for whenever you need them from no matter where you are. This is a super easy DIY.
  3. Lap Desks to do Work in Bed: I hate sitting at a desk doing work so being able to move my lap desk wherever I want to do my work is a great bonus. 
  4. Use Bed Risers for More Storage: You can do the 3in or 5in or even buy them stackable for it’s 8 inches. I love my risers and the space it helped me create under my bed. 
  5. Use Washi Tape to Organize Cords: Labeling the cords makes it easier to know what you are plugging in or able to know what you want to unplug. Washi tape comes in so many colors and patterns. 
  6. Bring funny Games that your Neighbors will want to Play: Want to have fun with your roommates or people who live on your floor. Invite them to come over and have fun. 
  7. Whiteboard or Schedule: Let your friends or roommates know where you are at or if you want to have guests by having a board you can write on. It can also be useful if someone comes to visit and you are not there they can leave you a message. 
  8. Alarm Clock just out of Reach: Some mornings I don’t want to get out of bed so set the alarm just out of reach so that way you have to get out of bed and start your day. 
  9. Buy an Ottoman: A great place to have storage and can be seating for friends. You can put things on it or keep extra items to store. 
  10. Command Hooks will be your Best Friend: You are able to hang things to save space. They are easy to use and don’t damage the walls.
