But if your laundry basket is never in use…I commend you. (This is great for packing though.)
12. Or a rolling laundry basket so you don’t have to wear out your arms carrying your laundry to the laundry room.
If you’ve ever had to cart a pile of laundry somewhere, you know how heavy they can get. If you’ve got an elevator, make use of it and get yourself a cart.
Every inch counts in those tiny suckers.
Because who says clever products can’t be as simple as this?
I’m telling you, you’re going to need all the extra space you can find.
Your bed will be where you spend most of your time, whether you’re doing homework or watching Netflix. Make sure you’re as comfy as possible with this pillow so you can prob yourself up on your bed.
This is perfect for keeping track of your busy life and not forgetting things! Sometimes writing things down in our life planners goes unseen because we’re not always looking at it. But with this on your wall, it will be hard to miss anything!
Just pick one skinny enough so it doesn’t take up too much space. And share with your roomie, it’s the nice thing to do.
And makes it really easy to pack your clothes.
