Trouble staying organized? Have a lot of stuff, but not a lot of room? We know that when you’re balancing school, work, roommates, boyfriends, girlfriends, and other activities, it’s really hard to maintain an organized living space.
Check out these easy solutions for controlling the clutter:
Get the most out of limited floor space by going vertical
Use vertical storage shelves to maximize your storage space. Using several of these compact pieces can eliminate the hectic mass of boxes and bags strewn all over your floor, while also giving a modern, stylized look to your room.
Turn those paper piles into orderly files
Losing that ten page paper that you pulled an all-nighter writing is a bad thing- a really, really bad thing. Make sure that it doesn’t happen to you by using a filing cabinet or drawer to separate and store all of your class work.
Use all the nooks and crannies
Even small spaces like the inside of your closet and the area underneath your bed can be put to work with compact storage containers. Store your seasonal clothing or old textbooks in the tubs, and then stack them on top of one another to get the most use out of the space.
Utilize the wall space
Put a cork board next to your desk and pin up all of your loose papers, reminders of approaching deadlines, and random pics of you and your buddies, giving you something to look at in the middle of an intense cram-session.
When living with others, issues with privacy and shared space will inevitably arise. Putting up a screen divider allows you to maintain a certain level of privacy and personal space.
