One time for my college girls, this post is for you! You’re in some of the best years of your life and living in some of the smallest spaces you’ll probably ever dwell in. You’re chalking up on your book smarts and discovering creative ways to put all of your personal belongings in a cramped dorm room or apartment. Thankfully, retailers feel your pain and there are several storage solutions to take advantage of. Grown ups, you can read too. We use what we learn in college for the rest of our lives, right? 😉

Bed risers

Plastic bed risers will lift your bed about 5″ off of the ground to give you more room for hiding junk under the bed storage. 
In additional to their practicality, bed risers make your bed look a little taller and more stately.
