As summer winds down, it’s time to get ready to head back to college! If you are shopping for your dorm room, making it feel like home is a top priority.
Did you know that the average college dorm room is only 12 feet by 19 feet? This means that everything you bring must fit in 228 square feet of space. That means that if you have a roommate, you could be faced with the task of storing all of your items in just 114 square feet (even less if you have a messy roommate). This may seem daunting, but Sterilite has a host of products that will make organizing your college dorm room easier than ever.
In most cases, the small closets in dorm rooms are simply not large enough to house all of your clothing. The 3 Drawer Wide Cart is ideal for storing all elements of your wardrobe. The clear plastic drawers make it easy to identify what is inside allowing you to spend less time searching for clothes and more time studying. Also, the width of these drawer carts ensures that there will be plenty of room for whatever you need to store. The Sterilite line of drawer carts also comes with casters so they can be moved easily. Whether you are creating a mobile closet under your lofted bed or adding a convenient bedside table, Sterilite drawer carts are a great way to use the limited dorm space efficiently.
A college workload means many things – long papers, group projects and late nights cramming for finals. The best way to fight the blues of burning the midnight oil is to have all of your study materials prepared for whatever project lies ahead. Fortunately, Sterilite has the perfect assortment of desktop storage products to ensure that you are prepared to tackle your college assignments. Get desktop clutter under control with the 3 Drawer Desktop Unit. This small storage unit features an open-sided frame with clear drawers so that the contents can be viewed from any angle. Also, the flip-top lid allows you to easily access frequently used items. This product is the ideal container for all your small school supplies including: pens, highlighters, sticky notes, calculators, and more.
Hitting the books is a major part of college, but let’s not forget that there is time for fun as well. Down time between classes and group projects should be spent relaxing, not searching for your favorite DVD. With Sterilite Mini Crates you’ll be able to get the most out of your free time. These small crates are the perfect size to hold CDs, DVDs, playing cards and whatever else you need to maximize your enjoyment while taking a study break. These items clip together to make a modular storage system – perfect for your desk’s upper shelf.
Great grades begin with great organization. So, whether you are trying to consolidate desk clutter or store all of your clothes, be sure to get a jump on your college semester with Sterilite products for your dorm room!
