College Dorm Room Storage Solutions + GIVEAWAY

backtoschoolseries2015As of today I am officially moved into my new apartment and fully unpacked. My room is organized and decorated, but it took some time to get there. As I was trying to figure out where everything should go, I realized I have a lot of stuff. If you’re in the middle of moving into a new place for the school year, you’ll probably be able to relate. It’s frustrating to not have storage space for those extra items that just don’t seem to fit anywhere.

There’s a few solutions to this problem, but what I’ve found really helpful is my tote bag from Thirty One Gifts. The bag is very spacious, super chic, and because it’s made out of fabric and not hard plastic, it’s easy to squeeze into spaces if need be. Keep reading to find out how you can win your very own customized tote from Thirty One Gifts. 



This bag can be used for more than just in your room. Leave it in your car to bring in groceries (the bag has straps for easy carrying), or take it with you on a picnic, to the beach, camping, etc. DSC_8637DSC_8642

There’s a lid as well to keep your items safe. DSC_8645

This tote comes in 21 other prints, and you can choose to put whatever embroidery you want on it. I chose to add my initials.

  4. I’m excited, yet slightly nervous about starting college in a couple of weeks! I feel like it’s my transition into being independent and self reliant. But more than that I’m so glad for it to start getting cooler and for leaves to change colors! This would be great for my dorm! Thanks for the chance!

    I am excited about school because I will be attending Kent State University this Fall! I’m excited about all of the great opportunities that are ahead of me, the experience and the relationships that I will build with others. I am definitely excited about working towards my Baccalaureate degree.
