Product: Omygarden Under Bed Storage Containers

Making another use of otherwise left space, under bed storage is an absolute life-saver.

I made use of this for Summer and Winter clothing, as it's not something I want to be dragging in and out from under the bed all of the time. I instead treated it almost like a seasonal suitcase, and it worked perfectly for me across all the years.


3. Closet Organisation

Space Saving Hangers

You'll use these through your entire Uni Life, and Home life after that! When I found these Hangars, it was an absolute life saver.

I was struggling for space more than ever at one point and without these, I would've started to really become strapped for space. Just make sure your Dorm Closet allows you the space to stack your clothes in this way.

And for only £11 for a Set of 10, you won't find better!


4. Ottoman Storage

6. Night Stand Storage

I wish I had something like this when I went to Uni.. it literally has everything you need!

Before we jump into this Bedside Table, it's always a good idea to make sure you have somewhere to put your phone at the end of the night, or your books and cup of coffee etc.

Now, onto the bedside table, this is great! Not only is it a great size, it comes with a Smart LED built-in and it has a built in USB, so you can easily use a long charging cable and charge your iPhone or iPad with ease, what a great addition to your Dorm.

Corner Shleves

Making the most of space in a Dorm Room is an absolute Necessity, and the most unused space is the corners of a room.

Privacy is something we all look for, and unfortunately, that can be hard to get when living in a Dorm. So make sure your treasured belongings are kept safe from prying eyes.

This set of 2 Trunks worked out great for me as I ended up keeping my personal documents in the smaller of the 2, and then anything important to me was kept in the other!

it can also easily be stored away under the bed and they're both quite visually appealing as well.


10. Fridge Organiser

Fridge Organiser

Product: KICHLY Premium Storage Organiser - Set of 8 (4Large + 4Small)

Not only are these extremely cheap, they also give you the ideal place to store and organise all of your fridge goods.

When you're at Uni, I'd imagine you do what I did, one shop every couple weeks and then a load of stuff just being chucked into the fridge. Then you just forget about what's at the back, and yeah, not fun cleaning.

These allow you to keep everything clean and neat, and gives you the perfect place to store everything!
