The Best Organizers for a Dorm You Can Find on Amazon
Give your college kid a running head start with these dorm organizers that will hopefully keep their rooms tidier and more manageable, even with busy schedules.
It's time to start shopping for your college kid's dorm must-haves already, and while the fun part might be finding the posters, bed sheets and decorative throw pillows, there are some necessities that can't be overlooked. Dorm rooms have a reputation for being small, disorganized and messy, but there are products that can help keep things manageable.
The best dorm organizers are easy to use, make things more convenient and help your college kid find everything they need quickly. Plastic bins are useful, but perhaps not as useful as the stackable clear ones on this list that open from the top and the side. Under-the-bed bins are another favorite, but ones with open tops and wheels are much more likely to get organized and used. And an easy-to-remove storage caddy for a mini fridge might actually prompt them to eat all of that delicious home-cooked food you send them back with. There are things for closets, desks, beds and even mini fridges on this list. Best of all, they're all relatively affordable and will hopefully allow your child to focus more on schoolwork than finding their phone charger, keys or clean clothes before they take their last final. Check out our favorites below.
While these might seem slightly pricier than other storage bins, these have features that make them well worth the price. They're stackable, have wheels and open from the top and the side, which means your college student can access clothes, shoes or whatever else they store in there without having to unstack everything. They're clear, too, so it's easy to see where things are.
For a product to really be useful in a dorm room, it needs to be incredibly easy to use. This organizer fits under beds and has wheels, making it a cinch to pull in and out. Plus, no cover means easy access to shoes, winter clothes, and other miscellaneous products that will now have a home.
This thin laundry hamper doubles as a laundry bag, thanks to the convenient handles. Given that it removes one step from the laundry process, it might inspire your child to actually head to the washing machine. If not, it folds down compact without taking much space.
