How To Make The Most of College Closet Space
College dorm rooms do not offer much in the area of dorm room storage and this is especially true for dorm room closets. College closets are going to be the catch all for your dorm necessities. You'll end up keeping your shoes, a lot (if not all) of your clothes, and even your pantry and cooking items in your college closet. And those are just the basic college supplies you'll be storing in your closet! Chances are you'll end up storing a lot more dorm necessities in your college closet than what we listed. So how do you maximize how much you can store while keeping it organized? With the right dorm essentials, you won't be afraid of a pile of dorm items falling out every time you open the door - believe it or not, adding more dorm organizers will add more dorm room storage to your college closet while taking up little dorm closet space.
1 - Scarf and Accessory Hanger
- Scarves and belts are hard dorm items to store. If not stored properly, they can fall all over the place and become damaged and dirty. A scarf and accessory hanger like our Flower Petal Hanger

You can even store your washcloths and dorm hand towels in the loops so they don't fall into the back of your dorm closet shelf where you can't reach them.
