Organizing Small Closets in Dorm Rooms

It is that time again – Back to Campus!! Colleges and Universities are cleaning out the dorm rooms to welcome back students while students are, once again, wondering how all their items are going to fit in a teeny, tiny dorm room.

We decided to hijack April’s dorm room (daughter of one of our employees) and try some organizational tips on her! We focused on her small closet as this was the area where she needed some help.

Problem #1: Open Space

April’s closet was open to the rest of her dorm room, just set a little further back. While this does allow for easy access and an open fill, it did cause the room to feel cluttered when the space was cluttered. Solution: Add multipurpose storage like the Rubbermaid Cubbies. These neutral bins would fit her decor even if she changed it next year. The cubbies acted like drawers containing different types of clothing and, like drawers, hid items away while making it easy to slide them out and grab what she needed!

Problem #2: Space

Unfortunately, small rooms often have small closets. As you can see from April’s closet, there is not a lot of hang space. Look at folding items you normally would not fold and placing them in add-0n closet accessories. Light jackets, jeans and bulkier, longer items can be folded to create extra space at the bottom of the closet for more storage. Also only keep what you need in the space – store out of season clothing at home or under the bed.

Problem #3: No Easy to Reach Shelf Space

April’s closet was a typical set up for colleges. One shelf with one hang bar. This is not an ideal situation when you have a lot of shoes like April did. We added the Closet Helper 2 Shelf unit to April’s closet under her short hang clothes to create additional storage space.

So what did April think? – “The Closet Helper was easy to handle and was very light. I installed it myself with no problem and using no tools. I loved using the Closet Helper for my shoes because it was a plastic material that is super easy to clean. By adding the shelving, I was able to use the cloth hanging unit for clothes and other accessories freeing up space on my top shelves and floor, eventually moving almost everything off the floor which I like. ”

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

      For instance, if you were searching for a garcinia cambogia extract herbal nutritional supplement, a properly labeled product would list the particular quantity per serving (like
      1,000 mg), the part of the plant used (fruit rind), and, ideally, the sum or percent of effective compound in the extract,
      such as 600 milligrams or 60% of hydroxycitric acid (or HCA).

        We all know that weight loss can improve blood pressure but those
        with a heart condition may run into other issues before they
        can actually lose any weight.
