1. Mirror with Hooks
Every dorm room needs a mirror- why not get one with hooks to hang your jewelry, scarves, or hats?
2. Under-the-Bed Shoe Organizer
Let’s face it, your neatly organized shoes on the closet floor won’t last long. Soon, there will be a messy pile of shoes under your clothes, and finding pairs will prove a never-ending struggle. Keep your shoes tidy (and out of sight) with this under-the-bed compartment!
3. 3-in-1 Breakfast Nook
Counter space is always limited in smaller spaces, ESPECIALLY in dorms and apartments! Save yourself some room (and money!) by choosing one of these 3-in-1 breakfast nooks with a coffee pot, toaster, and griddle all in one!
4. Snooze iPhone Dock
College students need plenty of sleep- make hitting that “snooze” button on the weekends easier with the Snooze iPhone dock. This will not only allow you to snooze your alarm simply by tapping on the top, but also keep your cords tidy and from falling off your nightstand!
5. Mattress Caddy
Late night studying? If you like to read and study in bed, grab a mattress caddy to drop your books in before dozing off!

With easy-to-clean, dishwasher safe plates, this grill couldn’t be easier for a busy college student! Not to mention, it’s easy to store and save counter space!
7. Folding Chair
In a small dorm or apartment, seating is always a huge issue when you have visitors. Jillian actually had a chair just like this one in her apartment that she would take out whenever needed, and fold back up to store in the closet as soon as guests were gone!
8. Mini Fridge
If your roommates keep stealing your lunch, you may want to stick a personal mini fridge in your bedroom for your own private stash!
9. Pyrex Bowls
Easy to stack and store, these Pyrex bowls are genius for the college dorm! Use them for mixing and food prep, and then pop the lid on top and throw the leftovers in the fridge- save yourself from extra dish washing!
10. Over-the-Door Storage
Towels, shoes, sweatshirts- you name it, and it probably needs a place to be stored. Save your floorspace and grab an over-the-door storage rack for your odds and ends!
