6 Hacks to Maximize Your College Living Space

Not only are finances tight in college, but so are the living arrangements! Here are some easy ways to make your living space bigger and more organized this semester.


1. Bed Risers

Prop your bed up on one of these babies and instantly you’ll have more room underneath. You can purchase the shorter ones as seen or go for even taller ones depending on the height you want. These are from Target.com for $24.00 and the best part is that they come with two built-in outlets and two USB ports. 


2. Storage Bins

Once your bed is propped use storage bins to store bulky items like winter shoes and heavy coats. You can find bins starting off at $7 or less on sites like Amazon.com.


3. Ziplock Space Bags

These storage bags are perfect for saving space. Amazon.com sells a variety pack of 13 for just $33.00. What you do is fill the bag with your items and then use a vacuum cleaner to suck the air out. This allows you to save space and keep your clothing protected and fresh.

 


4. Door Storage

Over the door storage bins are the perfect tools to hold everyday items. You can even use a shoe organizer for a cheaper alternative as well. Hook smaller organziers under your bathroom sink door and store hair dryers, flat irons, and more.

 


5. Adhesive Hooks

Adhesive hooks make it easy to hang small everyday items like your hats, sweater, keys, towels, and bathrobes. The best part is they are easily removable and don't require any hammering. 

 


6. Thin Velvet Hangers

You’d be surprised how much room you’ll save by using thin velvet hangers versus bulky plastic ones. I found some good hangers at Target.com, you can get a 10 pack for $8.99.
