Decorating your new apartment is exciting, but chances are you don’t have much space to work with. It may be difficult to fit your new back-to-school clothes and shoes into your tiny closet and there may not be space for a big dresser. Don’t worry, though. CL has three helpful tips to help you make the most of your new, small space!
- Under the bed storage: Why waste precious closet space with clothes that you don’t wear all the time? Putting storage bins underneath the bed is a great way to store clothes and shoes that aren’t in season. You can purchase inexpensive plastic storage bins in any size at Target or Walmart. They are a great way to save space and slide perfectly under the bed!
- Desk Organizers: Storing school-related items in and on your desk is a good way to save floor space. Use the drawers in your desk to their maximum potential, but keep them neat! Stack your books and notebooks inside. Get a desk organizer for the top of your desk to store pencils, pens and highlighters. If you have left-over drawer space, use it to store any other items you may have. I use mine to hide cleaning supplies!
- Over the door: Over-the-door organizers keep clutter off the floor. Store your shoes and jewelry in one of these organizers from Target! They even come in cute colors and patterns that will make your room look even classier!
No matter how small your space is, there are plenty of ways to organize all your things and still have room for your classy décor. Be creative with your organization!
