With thousands of young adults getting ready to head off to college, pioneer of vacuum-seal storage products, Space Bag, offers advice for how to streamline the college move-in process and ensure college kids have an organized living space.
•Re-evaluate belongings before packing up. Don’t bother moving items that won’t be used during your college stay. If a clothing item hasn’t been worn in the past six months, leave it at home or donate it. Bring as little as possible to keep your dorm room or apartment clutter-free.
•Fit more in less boxes. Extra pillows, sheets, comforters, towels and clothes require a lot of boxes when moving. Use Space Bag Dual-Use Bags to condense these bulky items. Once moved in, these bags can be filled with other items and compressed by hand and used to help save space in the dorm room. Bonus: Dual-Use Bags don’t require a vacuum to compress – just roll with your hands!
•Ditch the duplicates. If possible, contact your roommate ahead of move-in. Create a list of items that can be shared and designate who brings what. By consolidating items like televisions, printers and cleaning supplies, you can free up a lot of space.
•Considering lofting. Let’s face it, dorm rooms are tiny. If the dormitory allows it, think about putting your bed on risers or getting it as high off the floor as possible. This creates a lot more floor and storage space.
•Closet conundrum. How to fit everything in a dorm closet is a mystery. Most students visit home for Thanksgiving and this provides a great opportunity to swap summer clothes for winter wardrobe staples. If you don’t have the option of visiting home, condense out-of-season clothing in a Space Bag Hanging Bag to make the most of closet space.
We personally have Space Bags in our house and I've been using them for years. I can't tell you how disorganized my life would be without them. I keep everything from winter clothes to shoes in them and I keep them everywhere. Now It's your chance to try out Space Bags!
