Colored baskets.

The next hack we’ll cover is colored baskets. These are great for storing clothes, towels, and other items that need to be kept separate from each other. You can get a set of baskets in different sizes with handles on them so that you can easily carry them around your dorm room if needed.

If you want to splurge on some fancy baskets for your dorm room, then this is a great way to do it! But even if you don’t want to spend extra money, there are plenty of affordable options out there too! Just make sure they have handles or else they will be hard to move around when they’re full of stuff (and trust me—they WILL be full).

Whether you’re decorating with blue or yellow bedding or just trying out new colors on everything else in the dorms because all their rooms look exactly the same anyway; having these colorful storage solutions at hand will make organizing all those clothes easy peasy lemon squeezy (or whatever cliché saying goes here).


If you’re looking to hide extra storage underneath your bed, but don’t have the space for a box spring or under-the-bed storage bin, try using a bed skirt. The loose fabric will hide all of your storage items and it will look great when you put your bed back together!

  • You can also use an extra-long bed skirt to cover the edges of a mattress that’s on top of an existing box spring (or vice versa). This is especially helpful if you have kids who spill things often; no one will see any spills thanks to the long draping effect of this type of skirt.
  • Another option is to use a bed skirt as an additional layer over stacked boxes or containers that might otherwise be visible from below. This will conceal all those items so nobody knows what you’re hiding under there—unless they lift up the fabric themselves!


Have you ever noticed how much space is available under your bed? This can be a great place to store items that you don’t use often, like winter jackets and boots, or even bikes and other large items. You can purchase storage boxes with wheels or any other design that might suit your décor. They are reasonably priced and easy to assemble. If a box on wheels isn’t something you want in your room, another option is to install some hooks into the bottom of the bed frame so that you can hang up bags and other items there instead.

If you really want to get creative with this storage idea, there are some companies who sell beds with built-in drawers underneath them! These work especially well if your bedroom doesn’t have enough closet space for all of your clothes because they give you something else to store them in without taking up too much floor space.


You can use an empty tissue box to store socks. Just stick the socks in the box, and close it with a rubber band. You can also use a tissue box with a pretty pattern on it—my favorite is the one pictured above!

When I was organizing my sock drawer, I started to separate my tights from my regular socks when I realized that keeping them together was making my drawer look messy. The last thing you want when you’re trying to find a pair of shoes or tights is for them all be shoved into one jumbled mess that’s hard to sort through! If you have more than two people living in your dorm room (or if there are multiple students sharing one bathroom), this hack will come in handy for everyone!


  • If you’re running out of space for your shoes, look no further than this genius dorm room hack—a wall-mounted shoe rack! You can easily create your own by screwing a couple of planks of wood to the wall or simply buy one already made. Either way, it will keep all those shoes off the floor and easy to access when you need them.
  • (If you don’t have a hammer handy, here’s another alternative: use duct tape!)


I have a love-hate relationship with shoes. I love having some variety in my wardrobe, but hate the fact that it takes up so much space. It makes me want to tear all of them off and scream at them, “What do you even do!?”In order to save my sanity (and maybe my shoes), I came up with this brilliant idea:

Shoe Rack Out of Plastic Ceiling Panel

This DIY shoe rack is made out of a plastic ceiling panel and takes about 10 minutes to assemble. You can easily paint this to match any room decor, or even better – if you’re going for an industrial look or something more colorful – leave it as is! The only thing that might be difficult about this project is finding the right size square ceiling panel; however, they are pretty cheap ($3-$5) and come in many colors, shapes & sizes so it shouldn’t be too hard to find one that suits your needs perfectly!

To make sure that the pieces stay together securely without needing glue or another adhesive substance (such as tape), just use some painter’s tape around each joint before putting everything together since painters’ tape has strong adhesion properties without damaging most surfaces when removed later on down the road if needed – which makes cleanup super easy!


  • Use empty toilet paper rolls to organize jewelry, makeup and other items.
  • Organize hair ties by threading them through the center hole.
  • Use an empty toilet paper roll to keep earrings and rings in one place.
  • Organize your makeup brushes with this hack: Wrap each brush individually with a piece of tissue paper then insert into an empty toilet paper roll. The tissue will allow you to easily remove each brush when you’re ready to use it again!
  • You can also use a used toilet paper roll as a storage container for mascara, eyeliners and lipsticks—the possibilities are endless!


Clothespins are an inexpensive and easy way to organize your jewelry. You can hang them on the wall using command hooks, or you can use binder rings to create a neat looking display for them. If you want to get fancy, create a holder out of clothespins by drilling holes in a piece of wood and then attaching binder rings through those holes. This will allow you to hang up your jewelry without having it get tangled or dropped in the floor when you take it off at night!

You can also use clothespins as holders for makeup brushes! The handles make it easier for you to find exactly what brush you’re looking for and keep everything tidy so that there’s no hassle when getting ready in the morning!


We’re all about saving space, so this DIY makeup brush holder is another genius solution for storing anything that needs to be hung up. This project doesn’t take much time or money—you just need a jar and some wood, nails and glue. And if you want to make it even easier on yourself, go ahead and paint the wood piece to match your decor!
