If you’re a college freshman living in your own dorm, you’ve probably noticed that it is quite a task to clean the place up by yourself. Small areas get messy very quickly and it’s easy to lose things amid the mess. This simple guide will help you reduce clutter and get you organized fast.
Making your bed will help your dorm look and feel much larger than it is. With pillows and blankets thrown about, the size of the room starts to feel smaller. A neat bed can not only be used as a resting area, but also as a couch or study space. Just take 5 minutes of your time each morning to make your bed and you will increase living space.
Create a filing system for all of your paperwork. Cluttered paper is always a nuisance and college students usually have the most of it between schoolwork, receipts, notices, and other documents. If you can, use your computer to save your documents on. Computers can hold just as much as your full blown filing cabinet and are a fraction of the size.
Wash your dishes. Even if you do eat out a lot, still make sure that whatever dishes you do use are clean and put away in an organized fashion. If you’re cooking a large meal, clean dishes while the meal is cooking so you don’t have to clean so much after you’re full and tired.
