It has been a couple of months since my freshman year of college has begun but I figured I might as well still share my room!! It has taken these three months for me to figure out what organization techniques work for me.
When I was originally planning the colors for my room I wanted everything to be grey. WELL I realized that having my entire room grey really wasn’t going to look too good so I decided to add a subtle color into the mix. Although pink is one of my LEAST favorite colors, I thought accents of light pink would be a great though with the grey. Thanks to Target and Hobby Lobby, I was able to find the perfect accessories for my room and I really love how it all turned out!
I wanted an easy away to hold all my supplies for each class because just pilling them on my desk wasn’t working out. I found this Over the Door File Folder Organizer that works PERFECT for all of my classes. It is less than $15 and comes in a variety of colors! I went with the grey and purchased the 6 pocket organizer just incase I take that many courses. I ended up hanging in on my wall with some command hooks because I already have a shoe rack hanging over my door. It is super spacious and holds a lot of weight. I would highly recommend purchasing one of these for your room because it has kept me so organized!!
One of my favorite things is jewelry because I needed an easy way to store it so nothing got too tangled. I found this adorable rack at TJ-Maxx and thought it would be perfect!! It is a gorgeous gold color that adds the perfect amount of pop to the room. It could also hold your purses and hair wraps, as well as all the jewelry you bring!
If you know me, makeup is a must have. I had the hardest time narrowing down what products I was going to bring and what brushes I needed in my everyday collection. I found this adorable makeup shelf that matched my room perfectly and holds all of my everyday products. I got a cute jar to put all of my brushes on and found case for other miscellaneous products as well! I love how slim this storage shelf is and how spacious the drawers are. I couldn’t find the exact link on the TJ-Maxx website but I found something similar that would work perfectly too!!
Although my dorm room is quite spacious, there is still limited amounts of room for storage. I needed an easy way to hold all my towels and this hanging closet organizer from Ikea works perfect!! It holds a lot of weight and barely takes up any room in my closet, which is great because I need all the closet space I can get! This organizer comes in a variety of colors and is super budget friendly.
The most important part of moving off the school is making it seem as homey as possible. I definitely needed to make sure I had a way to hang pictures of all my favorite memories. This picture decor was only $12 from an antique store but Hobby Lobby has a super cute board that would work just as well!
I hope you found these tips helpful and enjoyed seeing my room!!
