While enjoying summer days on the beach under the sun, the last thing someone wants to think about is heading back to college for the start of the fall semester. Unfortunately, bags don’t pack themselves and getting prepared to move into a college dorm room needs to happen at some point during the summer fun. Going back to school can be overwhelming and it’s difficult to remember all the things one needs to pack for a new dorm room. Dorm rooms typically aren’t the biggest which is why it’s important not to overpack and be clever with fitting all necessary belongings in that one room. Maximizing storage is essential when there is limited space!
The Sterilite Wide 3 Drawer Cart is a perfect storage solution that doubles as a great nightstand to keep next to the bed in a dorm room. The cart’s three wide drawers can hold anything from textbooks to clothes to bedside necessities. Instead of carrying a heavy nightstand from the car to the new dorm room on move-in day, this cart has casters on the bottom making it easy to transport and move wherever needed.
Community showers can be a new concept to many when moving into college for the first time. The luxury of being able to keep all bathroom and shower products stored in the bathroom doesn’t exist when living in a dorm. The Sterilite Bath Caddy is perfect for holding shampoo, toothpaste, body wash, and all other essentials to and from the bathroom. Keep this caddy somewhere in the room where it can be quickly grabbed on the way to the bathroom to take a shower or brush teeth before class.
Of course if someone lives in a dorm, they’re going to need something that makes bringing laundry back and forth from the building’s laundry room as effortless as possible. The Sterilite 1.75 Bushel Ultra™ Wheeled Laundry Basket was practically made for a dorm room! Its wheels and handle make it extremely simple to transport clothes and take away from the dread of laundry day. This basket can even be used as a hamper for storing dirty clothes.
These three items will make living in a dorm a lot more manageable. Good luck and happy moving!
