Moving away from home for the first time is a big deal, especially when students are going to college. It’s difficult for them to decide what they want to bring versus what they have room for. Some students are assigned a freakishly nice dorm room; unfortunately not everyone can be that lucky. Spending the year in a cramped dorm room is not ideal but with these 5 not-so-obvious ways to organize a dorm room, life will be a little easier.

Your store can use this blog post as an aid to show the versatility of these organization products. We recommend creating a space-saving section near the school and dorm section of your store, that shows creative ways to use dorm room supply staples.
