No more digging under the bed to find that killer pair of Jimmy Choos…haha JK, my shoes are from Target.
4. A clip-on fan for the warmer days.
If you’ve never been in a dorm you may not realize how stale and yucky the air can get. A fan that can clip onto your desk, nightstand or even your bed is perfect for giving you that extra breeze (and maybe it’ll even cancel out the noise from your roommate snoring!)
5. A cute bean bag chair for entertaining guests!

An organizational dream.
8. A bedside shelf to give you more space.
This is perfect for setting your phone down on, water, and anything else you could need at a moments notice when you just don’t feel like getting up. It safely holds up to 15 lbs (which is basically like putting 6 laptops on it at once) so don’t worry that it won’t hold your things!

The ones that matter, anyway (let’s be real).

But if your laundry basket is never in use…I commend you. (This is great for packing though.)
12. Or a rolling laundry basket so you don’t have to wear out your arms carrying your laundry to the laundry room.
If you’ve ever had to cart a pile of laundry somewhere, you know how heavy they can get. If you’ve got an elevator, make use if it and get yourself a cart.

17. A non-bulky dry erase calendar decal that literally just sticks to your wall.
This is perfect for keeping track of your busy life and not forgetting things! Sometimes writing things down in our life planners goes unseen because we’re not always looking at it. But with this on your wall it will be hard to miss anything!
18. A desk shelf that provides even more…can you guess?
