How to Maximize Your Space | Dorm + Apartment Organization

In order to achieve a perfectly decorated space, organization must be incorporated! Last week was super busy as I browsed and made numerous trips to the store to completely revamp my apartment space. While I no longer live on campus and have quite a bit more space, I highly recommend the storage and organization I picked up for dorm spaces, too! I used the Target MadeForU College styler tool to figure out which decorating style matched my personality and the results pointed to "The Upstarter" which is so incredibly accurate. I'm only showing bits and pieces of my room for now so I don't spoil the new look I'll be showing next week!

Dorm rooms are the ultimate hangout spots and you might have tons of friends over! Extra seating makes everyone more comfortable, but when it doubles as storage, you save so much room. I can store anything from extra throw blankets to shoes in here! 

Dorm room closets are usually super small, so if you have some extra room, assemble a quick and easy garment rack for your extra clothes! If your roomie is a fashionista with a ton of clothes, you can maybe even talk about sharing the rack space. I love that the bottom of this one has a shoe rack. I've also added additional shelves on the side that are perfect for stacking. You can organize it with flat shoes, small purses, or jewelry drawers for your massive collection.

I've wanted to add cute storage bins to my room for a long time because they were much needed! I definitely recommend these for staying organized and keeping your space looking tidy. These look way better than simply stacking your folded clothes on a shelf and I wish I'd bought them for my dorm. Don't make the same mistakes I made -- save your closet! I'm actually using mine on cube shelf because it was an absolute disaster and desperately needed them.
