College Bound? Some Space Saving Ideas for the Dorm

We've been touring colleges the last few months with our daughter who will be a senior in high school this year. It's been a real eye-opening experience seeing the variety of dorm room choices out there. That's why I've been wanting to share some great organizing ideas with you on ways to maximize the space in your collegiate's dorm room.

Here are some of the items I'm loving from The Container Store - especially designed for small spaces:

3M Command Classic Adhesive Hooks - these attach to the wall but don't require nails or screws and can be removed with no damage to the walls. Plus, they can be re-used again in a new space. These hooks also come in a brushed nickle finish.

Tint Stacking Drawers - these come in two sizes and seven colors and can be stacked or placed under the bed for additional storage.

Desktop Swivel Storage - a great way to maximize the space on your desk. This holds paper clips, rubber bands, and other small desktop items all in one place.

Grid Totes with Handles - great for taking to and from the bath - when you can't store your bathroom items in the bathroom. Comes in small and large sizes.

2-Drawer Mesh Organizer - store all your toiletries, cosmetics or cleaning supplies in these great organizers which fit in a cupboard or on a closet shelf.

Bask Shower Caddy - this three-shelf shower caddy is great for sharing with roommates and holds all your shower essentials.

I could go on and on but check out The Container Store's great line of products by going to their website or visiting one of their stores.
