Cut off one side from several boxes and stack up these boxes as a shoe rack. Secure the shoe rack using tapes or paperclips. Looks great, right? Ok, maybe not so great, but it’s a super cheap and easy way to store your shoes while saving space!



#2 Storage Station

Did you know your stool can be used to build a storage station? How to do that? Simply turn the stool upside down and use some fabrics or plastic bag to create borders. You can store your umbrella, floor sweeper, broom, and many more things. You can also hang things over the stool legs just by hanging a plastic bag.



#3 Table Drawer Organizer

In a small and shared dorm room, every inch counts. Don’t miss out the space under your bed if there’s some available. Use sealed boxes or luggages to store unused stuff (clothes, bags, shoes etc.). But if your cupboard is too small for clothes (or anything else), use the storage box under the bed as a drawer instead.



#6 Over Door Hanger

Don’t forget the door when it comes to organizing your room. As most dorm rooms do not allow nails to be hooked, buying an over door hanger will solve this problem. It is removable so you can bring it to another room if you need to change dorm every semester. 


#7 DIY Floating Shelf

Adhere your container with a paperclip and a hook when it gets too crowded on your tabletop. Leave more space for your laptop and coffee mugs on the table with this brilliant idea now.
