24 Photos of Insanely Beautiful & Organized Dorm Rooms

This is all about the best organized dorm rooms.

organized dorm rooms

I was obsessed with dreaming up what my dorm room would look like from how I was going to decorate it to looking at pictures of organized dorm rooms.

Maybe it's the type-A perfectionist in me or maybe I was just ready to get out of my house ( 😉 )but I would spend hours doing it.

...and I know I'm not the only one.

This post gives you SO many really cute and organized dorm room inspiration that you can go and recreate in your own room.

Insanely Organized Dorm Rooms:

1. Keep Everything In a Corner 

Copy This Dorm:

One of the best ways to create an organized dorm room is to keep everything in the corner of the room. Why? Because it makes the space seem bigger because there is more space in the middle of the room!

So keep your bed and desks in the corners of the room to make your dorm look like the most organized one on the hall.

2. Keep Things on the Back of Your Desk

Copy This Dorm:

When being organized, the key is to be almost minimalistic! 

I hate having things cluttered around my desk and not having enough places to lay my books out (that sounds stupid but it's honestly true haha).

Also, I love how this girl added contact paper to her desk! Such an easy way to cover that ugly and worn wood in your dorm room.

3. Hang Lights On Walls

Another great way to create an organized dorm room is by hanging lights on the wall.

It's a great hack that makes the room look more spacious because it maximizes space. Definitely something to think about!

4. Bedroom Upstairs, Office Downstairs

Copy This Dorm:

This picture honestly  looks so cozy, and organized too! 

Lofting your bed is one of the smartest ways you can keep an organized dorm room because it creates SO much more space.

And this idea is awesome because if you're at your desk studying, your bed is out of sight, and therefore out of mind so you can GRIND! 

5. Have Nothing Except a Rug on the Floor

Copy This Dorm:

Much like when I said to keep furniture in a corner, keep the floor clean as well. I'm talking minimalistic honestly. Sure the poofs and the ottomans are cute and come in handy, but if you really want an organized dorm room consider only having a rug on the floor.

With how nasty dorm room floors are, having a rug is an essential.

6. Keep With Whites and Neutrals
organized dorm rooms

Copy This Dorm:

An organized dorm room is half actual organization, and another half life hacks. 

So here's another life hack: use whites and neutrals as much as possible in your dorm room. Color is fun, but keep it limited so that you look like you have a lot more space than you actually do! (I like to add color in pillows so I can change it seasonally)

And white and neutrals just LOOK clean, so buying them means you've already won half the battle when it comes to organization! 

7. Organize Your Things Under Your Lofted Bed

Copy This Dorm:

Dorm beds are abnormally high, but there's a reason for that: STORAGE!

By putting stuff under your lofted dorm bed it allows for more storage and honestly is a win-win. I lofted my bed the two years I lived in the dorms.

8. Keep Surfaces Minimalistic

Pretty much obsessed with everything in this dorm room.

9. Use The Top Of Your Fridge To Organize Your Mugs

Copy This Dorm:

It is well known on this blog that I love tea and will therefore find a way to incorporate it into about every blog post.

I love how this girl didn't waste the storage opportunity on the top of her fridge and actually made it cute!

10.Bring In Extra Furniture  
organized dorm rooms

Copy This Dorm:

This is only if you have space, but those new dorms at basically every SEC campus are not just essentially hotel rooms so if you're headed into SEC territory, you can probably apply this to your dorm! 

Bringing in extra furniture makes an organized dorm room in that it provides more space for you to hide things. Makes perfect sense, right? 

11. Black and White Combo ALWAYS Looks Organized

Copy This Dorm:

Contrast looks good. Good looks organized. Black and white is a contrast, so black and white looks organized!

12. Use The Same Colored Furniture

Copy This Dorm:

Maybe black and white isn't your thinkg, totally understandable!

Whatever your color may be, just use it all throughout your room. The same color creates a flow throghout your room and makes it look neat and tidy! 

13. Add The Same Patterns

Copy This Dorm:

You can take this tip for any style (if your thing isn't sunflowers but it does look SO happy) and use repeated patterns throughout your dorm.

Plus, this is good inspiration for suite rooms!

14. Put A Hutch Behind Your Bed 
organized dorm rooms

Copy This Dorm:

I think that this is one of the most genius ideas for an organized dorm room. And it's very unique too if you want to be a trendsetter! 

Have a desk hutch built up so that it can also be a headboard. It provides even more space for storage and organization!! 

15. Add Greenery/Succulents   
dorm room inspiration

Copy This Dorm:

I've probably made it seem like you shouldn't have any decor in your dorm room at all but that is SO not the case! Decor is needed, but it must be the right decor.

"Well what is that?" It is greenery and succulents. It makes a dorm room look organized because it provides some freshness and brightness to the room. Organization is all about the look of something, and greenery looks good! 

16. Keep A Few Things on Your Nightstand
organized dorm rooms

Copy This Dorm:

See how this nightstand has a lamp and a picture and that's it? It looks good right?

Keep like one to two things on your nightstand because less is best when it comes to an organized dorm room!

17. Just A Few Strands of String Lights  
college dorm

Copy This Dorm:

I know I know, string lights are almost like a necessity in dorm rooms nowadays! But yes, they contribute to an organized dorm room, too!

Don't use to many of them. There are so many spots for them and ways that you can use them it is so tempting to just put them everywhere but you're room will look like it vomited christmas lights if you use them everywhere.

18. Make a Sitting Area
organized dorm rooms

Copy This Dorm:

A lot of times people confuse organized with cozy, take advantage of this! 

A great way to make a cozy, yet organized dorm room is by creating a little sitting area. It doesn't take a lot of effort, just a bench or chair and some pillows. And people will love your dorm room! 

19. Loft Your Bed

Copy This Dorm:

This is a pretty obvious way to keep an organized dorm room. But sometimes we forget the obvious, so I wanted ot make sure and remind you! 

20. 1-3 Things Per Cubby  
organized dorm rooms

Copy This Dorm:

See how this cubby in the dorm room only has a few things in each cube and isn't just jam packed? It makes it look clean and organized, right? 

I know I said to store things, but where things are visible to other people, store them smartly!! 

21. Put Beds To One Side  
college dorm room ideas

Copy This Dorm:

This is a lot like putting the beds in the corner, keep things together to create flow and yes that can include your beds!

And putting your beds to one side also maximizes space and makes the room seem a lot bigger than it actually is which also plays into looking organized!

22. Create Symmetry  
organized dorm rooms

Copy This Dorm:

Another eye trick that you can play on people to make them think that your dorm room is insanely organized even if you haven't truly cleaned in ages is by creating symmetry throughout various places in the room!

This nightstand is the perfect example of that. It has the same lamps, and the same poofs in front of it. It makes it look nice and nice makes it look organized.

23. Put Items On Window Sill Instead of Furniture Tops 
cute dorm rooms

Consider putting a lot on there because you can technically hide it when you close the blinds. It's a great way to make use of unique space.

24. Just A Tapestry
organized dorm rooms

Copy This Dorm:

I suggest tapestries for a lot of things, they're great! But if you're going for an organized dorm room and want a tapestry, stick with just the tapestry. 

Tapestries have designs on them that when paired with other things can look messy and cluttered, and that is the opposite of what we want our dorm room to look like!

34 Cleaning Hacks You’ll Wish You Knew Sooner

This post is all about cleaning hacks.

cleaning tips

Knowing the best cleaning hacks can leave you with a home that is so clean that people will ask you, "how do you even keep your home this clean?!".

Plus, these cleaning hacks will save you a lot of time.

This post is all about the best cleaning hacks you'll wish you knew sooner.

Cleaning Hacks:

1. Eliminate stains with shaving cream.

If you get a stain on your perfectly new couch, good news is you may be able to eliminate the stain with an item right from your home!

Using this DIY stain remover is a life saver..

Simply rub shaving cream that is NOT the gel kind into any stain and let it sit for 30 minutes or over night and then blot it dry!

2. ​Put essential oil in your garbage disposal to make it smell delish.

If you have a garbage disposal that is constantly smelly then this cleaning hack is for you!

The steps are simple....

Grab some essential oils you may have around your home and put 3 drops into the disposal to make it smell pretty and pleasant.

This is the best cleaning hack for smell!

3. Clean out your coffee maker with vinegar.

If you own a keurig then I am sure you already know this trick but if you didn't then here it is...

Cleaning your coffee maker with vinegar is a great way to deep clean it and make sure all bacteria is washed away.

I have been using this hack for years now and can tell when my coffee maker is in need of a vinegar cleaning!

4. ​Remove carpet stains with vinegar and an iron.

You will learn vinegar is your best friend when it comes to cleaning!

Carpet stains are so common in households especially if you have kids or tend to throw parties.

Luckily, all you need is vinegar, water, and a steam iron for this hack.

Mix water and vinegar to a 1:3 ratio, cover the stain with the mixture as well as a wet cloth before steaming the carpet for 30 seconds or so and after that you should have a stain free carpet!

5. Use lemons to remove stains from stainless steel fridge and faucets.

If your home has a stainless steel fridge then you know how hard it is to get it clean, as well as faucets.

Cutting a lemon in half and using it in circular motions to clean either or is a great way to get them shiny and clean!

I just recently started using this hack and LOVE IT!

6. Use a ball of aluminum foil to clean dishes.

Glass baking dishes can be super stubborn when it comes to getting clean.

Using aluminum foil balled up and dish soap to scrub glass baking dishes is the best way to clean off the burnt or left over pieces of food on the dish.

This acts as a stronger wool scrubber BUT obviously, don't do this on something that scratches easily!

7. Clean makeup brushes with baby shampoo.

This is my ultimate hack that I had to share with you all (just in case you never heard of this).

Baby shampoo as brush cleaner is my favorite cleaning hack because I have purchased so many expensive brush cleaners and baby shampoo is cheap and has worked the best!

You can take dirty brushes and wet them, then take a dime size of baby shampoo in your palm, and move the brush in circular motions in the shampoo until makeup is off, then rinse leftover makeup.

8. Clean earbuds with a q- tip and rubbing alcohol.

Just the thought of this makes me want to gag but look, we all need earwax cleaned out of our headphones sometimes.

If you own air pods or ANY earbuds then this is a life saver. 

All you need is a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol.

Take the Q-tip and dip it into the rubbing alcohol until most of it is dry (so it doesn't soak the earbud) then take it on your earbud and get any dirt or grime that may be on them! 

9. Use toothpaste to clean rings.

I have been using this cleaning hack for awhile now but know not everyone knows about this!

You can clean your engagement rings or regular rings with toothpaste!

Take an old toothbrush and add a dime amount of toothpaste onto the brush and begin gently scrubbing the ring in circular motions and then rinse, once you rinse your ring should be shiny and new.

10. Use a dustpan to pick up small toys around the house.

If you are constantly picking up toys around your house the this idea is genius!

f you have kids who are always playing with legos or smaller toys then using a dustpan and broom to sweep up all the little pieces as opposed to hand picking each one up is such a  time saver.

This is a hack moms can't live without for kids!

11.Clean and deodorize your microwave with lemons and apple cidar.

Splattered food and unpleasant scents are common in microwaves.

By taking cut up lemons and apple cider vinegar in a bowl and cooking it for 2 minutes in the microwave it will help act as a natural deodorizer as well as can be used as a cleaning product to clean up spills.

This cleaning hack is a natural microwave cleaner.

12. Use socks on your Swiffer for easy dusting.

Okay, I will for sure be trying this hack out!!

Swiffer refill packs can cost up to $15 which is insane.

There is a household item that can work just as good for dusting and cleaning the floors which is old ( obviously clean) socks.

All you need to do is put a sock where the swiffer pad would go and clean away!

13. Wash shower curtain liners.

Shower curtain liners  and shower curtains can hold so much mold, bacteria, etc so making sure you clean your shower liner and curtain at least once a week to every other week is crucial!

You can easily throw your fabric liner into the wash with bleach and detergent and it comes out good as new.

Washing your liner and curtain frequently helps your shower stay clean as well as reduce the amount of times you need to re purchase this item!

14. Use pre-sized parchment paper when cooking.

This will keep your kitchen clean and make your life easier. 

It's a little more expensive than traditional parchment paper and definitely not a necessary thing, but it sure does make me happy when im whipping up a meal and can just grab one of these bad boys and not get a wonky size of parchment paper.

15. Brighten your laundry with baking soda.

There is nothing worse than one of your favorite shirts getting faded.

Using a cup of baking soda can help you reduce the amount of detergent you need as well as help brighten your laundry.

16. Put dish soap and water in a blender to easily clean it.

If you are an avid smoothie drinker than this hack is for you!

Blending dish soap and warm water in the blender will help clean up your blender and get any leftover stubborn stains.

I always have a hard time getting my blender 100% clean and this hack works great.

17. Keep your cleaning cabinet tidy with tension rods.

This is such a genius hack!

My cleaning cabinet always gets messy so taking a tension rod and "hanging" up the cleaning bottle by their spray top is genius!!!

This eliminates clutter and always more room for your other supplies to stay on the floor of the cabinet.

18. Clean your toilet with coke.

Who knew?!

Yes, you can use coke to clean toilet bowls! If you realize friends are coming over and are out of toilet cleaner then use coke from your home.

Coke is very acidic so it can actually clean a toilet bowl super well. The more ya know ;).

19. Use a lazy susan in your fridge.

Insert The Home Edit ;).

If you are tired of having a cluttered fridge you need this hack in your life! You can just take a lazy Susan and organize your sauces or fridge contents and it makes so much more room for other stuff!

20. Eliminate lint with a razor.

Lint is SO annoying and if you don't have a lint roller then a razor can get stubborn lint off of jeans or black pants.

21. Air out your mattress with baking soda.

When it comes to cleaning hacks I love the ones that will actually improve my life and this one for sure has!

This is so simple its insane....

You take baking soda and sprinkle it all over your bare mattress and let it sit for about 20 minutes and then take your vacuum and vacuum up the baking soda and it leaves your mattress super clean and fresh! 

22. Use a squeegee to save your vacuum.

Try using a squeegee to collect that unwanted pet hair on your carpet before vacuuming because it will SAVE your vacuums life.

If you do not own a squeegee use rubber gloves to collect the pet hair on your carpets.

23. Avoid clutter as much as possible.

This is a no brainer but try to avoid clutter as much as possible and pickup smaller messes during the week so it doesn't turn into a larger more difficult to clean mess.

This hack is perfect for any busy guy or gal who is  college student because I know how it feels to be low on time and have a messy room!

Avoiding letting messes pile up is key to anyone who is always busy and hates cleaning!!!

24. Collect broken glass with bread slices.

 This is a hack I would have never thought of and honestly was shook when I saw this.

You basically take a piece of bread (I know genius) and pickup any broken glass with it and the glass adheres to the bread.

This is an item just about everyone has and can work much better than a broom!

25. Put air fresheners in vents.

This is another easy known hack that works so well!

Its self explanatory- you put yummy smelling air fresheners into your vents and there you go!

26. Clean legos in a laundry bag.

If this isn't genius that I don't know what is...

My friend has kids and recently told me this hack- basically you take your kids legos and put them in a laundry bag and wash them as you would clothes and it cleans them!!

This is seriously perfect and is great because kids legos and blocks contain so much bacteria.

27. Remove shoe stains with nail polish remover.

For all you college students, this hack will save your shoes. White sneakers are so in but the downside to them is they stain so easily!

You take nail polish remover on a cotton round and remove the stains on your shoes with the nail polish remover and it is supposed to leave them bright and white!

28. Turn the hangers around so you can easily see what clothes you are wearing and what clothes need to be donated.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, get rid of items you haven't used in months.

When it comes to clothes I am always getting rid of them because I will buy items and not use them for months and the items just sit and clutter my closet.

This hack is obvious but get rid of items that you have not been using because it takes up space and makes your closet cluttered.

29. Use makeup remover wipes to clean your bathroom

This is a cleaning hack for your bathroom that I would never think of!

Basically we all take off our makeup with makeup remover wipes so on one side take off your makeup and use the other side to wipe off your sink so no build up mess can haunt you at the end of the week.

30. Use dryer sheets to clean baseboards.

I have personally used this hack for years and it ACTUALLY works!

You use dryer sheets which are anti static on baseboards and since they are anti static they will stay dust free for longer.

31. Clean stove top with hydrogen peroxide.

If you have a glass cooktop, this will help you get those pesky stains away.

Basically what you do is mix dawn dish soap and hydrogen peroxide and use a magic eraser to scrub the stove top to remove and gunk and grime!

32. Lint roller on lamp shades

Lint roller are not just good for lint on clothes but amazing for dust on lamp shades and a great way to easily clean off dust quick!

33. Use baskets to organize items

Baskets are a girl's best friend for easily hiding clutter.

34. Disinfect your sponges in your dishwasher.

Sponges carry so much bacteria so it is important to disinfect them before cleaning with them!

You can either throw them in the dishwasher or warm up water and lemon juice from a whole lemon in the microwave with the sponge in the solution!

This makes sure the sponge you are using in your home is actually cleaning and not spreading bacteria.

S'Well water bottles are the "it" thing right now because they are cute but also keep water cold for days (not an exaggeration-- I have one and love it).

Both are the most popular water bottles people get in college.

The most popular colors currently for college students are matte blackgoldblack crocodile, and marble.

3. Fuzzy Blanket
cozy blanket for college students

Is there a more comfy looking blanket?! I'm thinking no.

You can't go wrong with a blanket as a Christmas gift, it is a hit for all kinds of people.

Dorms and apartments have a history of being freezing since no one wants to pay for a lot of heat. A blanket is a must in the winter.

This blanket comes in a variety of colors and sizes (twin, queen, and king). 

4. AirPods
best christmas gifts for college students bluetooth headphones

Bluetooth headphones are a college essential and beloved item by many.

Some of my college friends said that bluetooth headphones have been their favorite purchase of the year and that they didn't know how they lived without them before (slightly dramatic, but you can clearly tell these are a hit).

The original Apple AirPods are the most popular wireless headphones for college students. They hold battery for a long time and don't break easily. However, if you are looking for a cheaper alternative these wireless headphones come in at just $27.99.

She has this one from Nordstrom and whenever she wears it, she has at least ten girls asking where she got it from.

10. Baseball Hat

Hats are always popular but especially with college students since sometimes we don't feel like washing our hair ;/.

The second hat is the distressed look which is SO popular. Both are great options!

11. Long Winter Jacket

If you're in the North and the college student doesn't have a long winter jacket like one of these, you my swell plan their funeral. 

Okay, totally kidding. But seriously, a good jacket is so essential for anywhere that gets cold. Most of college students classes require a walk and colleges don't cancel classes easily for snow/cold weather.

This Christmas gift for college girl can be a little pricey, but they both last forever. The Canada Goose Jacket ($923.71) seems extremely expensive but you would be shocked at the amount of college students that have them because they keep you so warm. 

12. Satin Pajamas

The go-to college pajamas is a large old t-shirt and a raggedy pair of shorts.

Everyone could use a new set of pajamas and no one really thinks about buying themselves them which makes it the perfect gift.

Gift cards have always been and will always be the most wanted Christmas gift for college girl.

The most popular gift cards among us college students are Amazon, Target, food places, and Gas gift cards.

I'm biased to Amazon because they offer SO many products. They can get everything from game day apparel to food (and everything in between). Amazon gift cards can be purchased online.

23. Bluetooth Speaker
good gift ideas for college students | bluetooth speaker

Every college student needs a bluetooth speaker. It is essential!

This JBL Flip 3 Splash-proof Portable Stereo is one of the most popular speakers because of how loud it can play, it won't break it drinks get spilled on it, and can easily fit in a purse or backpack to take somewhere.

24. Travel Mug

If the student you are gifting this too is a coffee or tea lover, this is a must.

The Yeti Tumblr is truly the best insulated travel mug and keeps your drink hot all through the day. Plus, it doesn't spill which is very important. If you don't like white, there are 12 other colors to choose from.

If you want to go for a "cuter" route, check out these travel mugs with gold lids. I want one!

25. RayBan Sunglasses
christmas gifts for college girls

Everyone wants Ray Ban sunglasses. These are BY FAR the most popular sunglass brand for college students. You literally can't go wrong getting a pair of Ray Bans for a girl in college.

I would say aviators are the most popular style Ray Ban for students but there are all different kinds of styles, so make sure to see which one you think they would like best!

26. Tile
christmas gifts for college girls cheap

If the student you are buying for loses things a lot, they NEED a Tile! 

You attach them to your keys and hook it up to an app on your phone. The app will tell you exactly where your keys are so you never misplace them.

AND they are less than $25! I always assumed they were much more than that.

You can find this gold tile here.

27. Initial Necklace
cheap gifts for college students

Initial necklaces are the thing to wear right now. The most popular ones are these two which are actually dupes for more expensive brands (like WAY more expensive).

These are a little bigger so if the person you're buying for doesn't usually wear jewelry I would maybe stay away from this.

28. Towel Wrap

I've said it before and I'll say it again, towel wraps are a MUST in college!

I used mine everyday and still use it every single time I shower.

You can find this towel wrap in all kinds of colors here.

29. Luna Face Cleaner
creative gifts for college student

You know Clarisonics? Well this is the new "IT" skin care cleaner.

I do have to say, these are amazing and clean your face so well.

These aren't cheap but they will last you a long time (and come in many different colors!).

30. Personalized Makeup Bag
custom christmas gift for college girl

A personalized makeup bag is so nice to have in college because you are usually carting your makeup around to different places for parties or game days you are getting ready for.

To have a customized makeup bag that is clearly yours can make sure your stuff doesn't get lost.

Plus, you'll be able to have it for a really long time!

42 College Hacks Everyone Should Know By Senior Year

This post is all about college hacks.

college hacks

Now that I am a senior in college, I realize just how much I didn't know going into my freshman year. I've learned SO many college hacks that would have made my life a million times easier if I would have learned them freshman or sophomore year of college.

I put a huge list together (and asked my friends too) of the best college hacks that we've learned the last four years.

These are the best college hacks that everyone should know about before their senior years.

College Hacks You NEED To Know:

1. Take advantage of student discounts! 

There are sooo many amazing student discounts available from some of your favorites places. This is my ultimate favorite college hack just because who doesn't love saving money?

I use almost all of these and it's saved me so much money. I am already sad that once I graduate I have to pay full price for all these services ugh. I'm hoping that I can make it last as long as possible ;). 

1. Spotify (this also includes Hulu!)

2. Apple Music

3. Amazon Prime Student 

4. Movie Theaters (like $6 Student Thursdays)

5. Museums 

6. Shopping! (especially online!)

2. Buy extra long chargers.

Seriously this has saved me so many times. There are never enough plugs, especially in dorm rooms and apartments, so having a long charging cord that can reach you is crucial. 

The worst is when you're studying or laying on the couch and all you want to do is scroll through your phone but it's about to die. And then your charger doesn't reach. 

A long phone charger will be something you realize you need way more than you would think trust me! 

3. Reheat pizza with a glass of water in the microwave to prevent soggy crust.

This is a drunk hack that you will appreciate at 2am after coming home from the bars.

I love leftover pizza as much as the next person but the WORST is when you reheat it and it gets all soggy. It just isn't the same. 

Don't worry... you'll never have to eat soggy leftover pizza again. This college hack is one of my favorites! Just fill a cup with a little water and put it in the microwave with the pizza and it soaks up any moisture. No more soggy crust!

4. Keep your dorm or apartment smelling fresh with a laundry sheet.

My least favorite thing is when I walk into my room and it smells bad. This hack is so easy and lasts so much longer than an air freshener. 

Just put a laundry sheet on a fan or your air conditioner and there you go! It smells so much better. 

5. Loft your bed for more storage.

Lofting your bed or using bed risers gives you so much extra storage! This college hack is so helpful especially when living in the dorm and basically no room to put anything. 

Being able to put a few more storage bins under your bed makes keeping things organized a lot easier. 

6. When giving a presentation, make a friend ask you a question you already know the answer too.

I absolutely hate public speaking so anything that makes it easier I am here for. There are usually Q&A portions after presentations so if you have a friend in class, definitely tell them to ask you a question. 

This college hack makes it so much less nerve-racking and it will make you sound like you really know your stuff!  

7. Build your GPA in your first years when classes are easier.

You'll thank yourself senior year for this one. 

Going from high school to college is a hard transition but freshmen year classes are definitely the easiest of your 4 years. 

Work hard your first few semesters and do as well as you can. It only gets harder. Having a good start will give you some cushion for when your classes are tougher and it's more difficult to get As. 

8. Eat at as many free food events as you can.

OMG there are sooo many opportunities for free food. And trust me, you'll want to eat at every one. 

Food is expensive, especially if your like me and want to eat out all the time. 

The first few months of school there are so many events to get free food. New club meetings, networking events, Homecoming week, etc. Go to these! You'll save a ton of money on meals and the food is usually super good too 🙂

9. Rent your books on Amazon.

I will honestly never understand how a single book can cost over $200. That makes no sense! 

The good thing is is you can usually rent your books on Amazon rather than paying an absurd amount of money at your school's bookstore. 

Before buying them at school, check Amazon Rentals and compare prices. This college hack has saved me sooo much money throughout college. Just make sure you send it back before the rental deadline! 

I've also used Chegg and really like them because you get a ton of free product samples in the box they send you with your books haha. 

10. Go to office hours! 

Your professors LOVE when students come to office hours. More often than not, they are sitting their bored, waiting for someone to come talk to them. 

If you are struggling at all or have any questions, I highly recommend stopping in to office hours. It's definitely intimidating at first, but after you do it once, you'll realize that your professor is actually their to help and wants you to succeed. 

This is also great to network and get to know your professors. Who knows, you might need their help after graduation! 

11. Drink Pedialyte to lessen a hangover.

Alright, this may sound weird but I stand by this college hack 100%. If you are of drinking age, Pedialyte is pretty much the cure to a hangover. 

Drink it before you go out and after and you'll feel like one hundred bucks the morning after. And trust me, I get the worst hangovers of all time. 

12. Figure out what time of day you are most productive and take advantage of that.

I am such a morning person so I've learned to schedule my classes right away in the morning and do as much as I can before dinner. 

Some people like to stay up late and wake up late. And that's great! Schedule your classes in the afternoon when you are most productive. 

I've learned that if you don't schedule around your most productive time, you end up skipping class or just being lazy and tired. Listen to your body and follow that! 

13. Set your phone screen as your schedule the first week of classes. 

I am so bad at remembering my schedule so this was such a good college hack! It's so much easier to do this than to log in to your school's site and find it. It saved me so much time. 

14. The proper way to wrap a Mac charger. 

I didn't know how to wrap my computer charger for like 3 years into college. This blew my mind lol. This college hack will save you a lot of tangled cords! 

15. Go to class!

It is sooo easy to get in the habit of not going to class. But it's also super easy to get behind. The stress is not worth it. 

Go to class and learn! That's what college is all about. 

16. Bring a door stop when moving into the dorms.

I didn't do this and honestly I probably would have gotten to know a lot more people on my floor if I did. Having your door open is such a great way to tell your neighbors that they are welcome to come in and hang out! 

17. Check out people's leftovers on move out day.

When people are moving out they realize they have a lot of stuff that they don't use or don't want anymore. Check the common areas of your dorm or apartment building for things that people left behind! 

I've found everything from mini fridges to really cool posters. It's like a free garage sale!

18. Don't procrastinate.

The freedom of college makes it so easy to procrastinate and put work off. Stay on top of things! 

It will save you so much stress later in the semester. Cramming at the last minute is the worst and will ultimately hurt your grades. Trust me, I've been there. 

19. Find someone more productive than you and study with them. 

I love going to the library with other people that have their sh*t together. It makes me feel guilty when I'm not doing work which makes me so much more productive. 

One of the best motivators is finding a group of super hard-working people and doing work with them.

20. Only print on campus.

Having a printer sounds nice but honestly it's just a money pit. There are so many places on campus to print for free! 

You don't think of the paper and ink that you'll have to buy and it really does add up. Find the closest printer to your classes or where you live and go there when you need to print! 

21. Try to keep your Fridays as open as possible.

Trust me when I say you will not want to do ANY work once it hits Friday. Try to schedule as little class as you can so you don't have a packed day. 

This college hack helped me a ton once my classes got harder. Monday - Thursday I would be on my grind and would end up burning myself out by Friday. 

It's also great to have a 3 day weekend every week! How great does that sound?

22. Make eggs in the microwave when you're feeling lazy.

I am sooo lazy when it comes to cooking. This college hack has made my life 100x easier in the morning. All you need is a mug, eggs and a microwave! 

This is SO helpful for people living in the dorms too! 

23. Fancy up your Ramen Noodles. 

Everyone knows Ramen Noodles is a classic college meal. I mean how much easier can it be? 

These steps give you a way to switch up the classic Ramen meal to make it a little more home-cooked. I hope these recipes makes you feel a little less lazy! 

24. Know how you study best.

In your first year, test out different ways of studying - flashcards, rewriting notes, rewatching lectures, color coding, etc. Everyone learns differently and it helps so much to figure out how you study most effectively. 

I personally like Quizlet but need to actually print out the Quizlet sheets since I am a visual learner who needs to hold paper in my hand (weird but shows I figured out how I study best!!).

Once you figure out how you study best, studying gets a lot easier and quicker. Your exams will also go a lot better! 

25. Buy a Brita.

Wherever you are living, I always recommend getting a Britta. It honestly just makes your water taste so much better (which is why I love it) but it also makes sure your water is clean which is great too lol.

We used this college hack all the time in the dorms because who knows what's in the water there. 

26. Use free transportation. 

I wish I utilized this college hack more throughout college. Uber is so easy to get in the habit of using to get places and I definitely am guilty of that. 

But trust me, it adds up FAST. 

At my school, you could get a bus pass for free if you were a student. This saves so much money and the bus goes everywhere! Highly recommend looking into free transportation on your campus before you spend an arm on a leg on Ubers lol. 

27. Use binder clips to keep chargers in place. 

I hate when my charger is so short and falls on the floor when I'm studying or in bed. This college hack is sooo easy and makes your charger actually stay where you want it to. So helpful!

28. Place clothing vertical to save space. 

This college hack is great when you are low on storage! You can fit sooo much more in your drawers by placing things this way. 

If you are living in the dorms or a small apartment with limited space, this is a great way to save space. And it looks so organized! 

29. Tape a laundry cheat sheet to your hamper.

I still don't remember what cycle to put my laundry on and I'm a senior lol. This college hack will ensure that you never mess up your laundry because you'll always have a cheat sheet with you! 

30. Use a picture frame as an easy dry erase to-do list.

I love making to-do lists and staying organized. This college hack is so easy if you have an extra picture frame lying around. 

This is so simple and it looks great too!

31. Keep your books and notes and sell them to people that are taking the class after you.

I've been doing this college hack since freshmen year (since I have a younger sister) and keep all my class materials to either give to younger students or sell to people. 

This way you can make money off of material you otherwise would have thrown away and you're helping another student! Good karma 🙂 

32. Make your own coffee.

When I think about the large amount of money I spend on coffee from Starbucks a year makes me question my life lol.

This is the easiest college hack but is so tempting not to do. Seriously if you are on any sort of budget, making your own coffee will save you SO much. And it's so easy to find what a good combination that is either similar or the same to what you would order at a coffee shop. 

Keurigs or Nespresso machines are a great investment that will make it easy and fast to make a great cup of coffee. 

33. RateMyProfessor.com

This is the BEST website to use when you're signing up for classes. People rate their professors on different things like difficulty, work load, etc. 

Before choosing your classes, I definitely recommend checking this website out to make sure that you're not getting yourself into a super hard class. People are very honest on this site so it will help you a ton. 

34. Listen to recorded lectures at 1.5x speed. 

If you have recorded lectures that you have to watch or are rewatching to study, watch at 1.5x speed. You really can't tell that much of a different and it makes it go sooo much faster. 

35. Copy your keys.

Once you start living on your own, you're going to have keys that you're most likely going to lose at some point (I've already gotten locked out of my apartment so many times). 

Most keys say "Do Not Duplicate" but I promise a locksmith will definitely still duplicate lol. Having a copy will save you so much trouble for the time when you are finding your original. 

36. Check grade distributions. 

Before signing up for classes, especially classes that you are taking just for extra credits and you want to be easy, check grade distributions from your school's registrar. 

I always use this college hack when looking for classes. This will show you the portion of students that get As, Bs, etc. This can help show you how easy the class will be and what your chances are of doing well. 

37. Make time to exercise.

I know we've all heard about the Freshmen 15. Well it's real. 

You have so much more time in college but it's easy to feel like you need to study all the time. Exercising actually helps a ton with productivity and your mood.

It's definitely something you should really try to incorporate into your schedule! 

38. Cooking with a coffee maker.

This is a GREAT college hack for you college freshmen! What better than an appliance that can make your coffee and your dinner? 

39. Don't forget to sleep! 

Guys sleep! I feel like college students have a stereotype that they don't ever sleep. Which some people really don't BUT it's so important!!!

It actually is proven that you retain information better when you get a good night sleep. All-nighters are never a good idea. And who doesn't love their sleep?

40. Get the Mint app to help budget.

I got this app this past summer and it's been so helpful. You can set budgets for yourself for different categories like eating out, bars, shopping, etc. And then it tracks your spending. 

It gives you a weekly summary of your spending and it's made me see that I spend waayyy too much money.

If you're on a budget, you should definitely download Mint! 

41. Bring cash out instead of your debit card. 

I have saved sooo much money doing this. If you are of age and are going out on the town, or if you're just going out to dinner with friends, bring a limited amount of cash out. 

This way you literally can't spend a lot of money because you only have a certain amount! Whenever I bring my debit card out, I always tend to spend way more than I planned to. 

Definitely try this college hack out if you're on a budget or want to save some money! 

42. Have fun!!! 

College goes by wayyy too fast. Don't forget to have fun! Don't take yourself too seriously and don't be afraid to mess up. You only have 4 years and stressing over the small things is not worth the time! 

Live these four years to the fullest!

The Ultimate Guide To Writing Open When Letters (60+ Ideas and Printables)

This post is all about making Open When Letters.

open when letters

There is nothing worse than being away from someone you are close with and sometimes you just need a little gift to show them how much you love him - insert Open When letters.

My boyfriend and I have been in a long distance for almost four years now and I know first hand how hard it can be!

I also know how you have to really use your creativity to keep sparks flying and remind them that even though they may be thousands of miles away, they are constantly on your mind.

This post gives you over a hundred Open When Letter ideas and a free printable so you can create a gift your loved one will never forget.

What Are Open When Letters?

open when cards

Open When Letters are a really special and creative gift to send to someone far away from you. 

You create a large amount of letters with special notes in them each pertaining to a topic. One example of an Open When letter would be, "Open When...you need a study break".

This would be the perfect card to send to a college student that you are either in a relationship with, friends with, or is your child. 

When finals come and they need some extra loving, they can open that card and it can put a smile on your face.

It's an easy and personal way to let them know how much you love them!

What Do You Write In Open When Letters?

open when letters for boyfriend

This is really up to you and the person you're creating it for but there are a few rules we like to follow when creating our own Open When Letters.

First things first, there is a main card labeled just "Open When...". That is the first envelope they should open and in it you can write the rules of the cards.

In this letter, explain to them how they can only open one or two letters a week and to open the letter, they need to be feeling whatever is on the front. 

Here's some rules we recommend including on the first letter:

  • NO peeking! 😉
  • Open the letter whenever the topic applies to you.
  • DON'T open them all right away...do it sparingly!
  • Text me and send me a picture when you open one of the letters.
  • Save them! They will be fun to look back on.
  • ENJOY them!

For the other letters, write things that go with the envelopes topic. 

For example, in the envelope "Open When...You're feeling sick.", you can write different cold and flu methods that will help them feel better.

It's really simple and allows you full (and personal) creativity!

How Do I Make Open When Letters?

It is so easy to make Open When Letters! SO EASY!

All you need is an envelope, markers, and a whole lot of creativity.

Don't worry, if you need actual ideas for what to put on your Open Letters, we're getting to that in just a second!

On each envelope you need to make sure that you write "Open when..." and then include an event or feeling.

This will be gross if you are not in a physical relationship with this person (like if he's your kid haha) but some people even write "Open when...you're horny." HAH! I want to see what they write in that!

Unfortunately for my boyfriend, he did not receive that letter 😜.

At the end of this post, I tell you how you can download all of these "Open When..." printables used in these pictures.

A really nice way to spruce up that Apple watch is with a new cute band. These bands from Rebecca Minkoff and Kate Spade are the perfect way to take her Apple watch up a level.

2. Sephora Favorites Perfume Sampler Set

3. Custom Mug

This is a really special gift if you don't have a lot of money to spend. This mug is less than $15 and you can get it customized with your mom and your features (skin color, hair, etc).

I feel like I should mention again...under $15!! Such a great deal.

4. Ember Mug

I think that these mugs are so cool and would make a perfect gift for mom on any occasion! 

Ember mugs keep coffee at a specific set temperature so that it never gets cold. Moms may love iced coffee, but they don’t love cold coffee. Keep your mom drinking the hot coffee she deserves with this great gift! 

5. Custom Necklace

This is one of my favorite meaningful gifts for mom and something they can wear everyday! Get this customized with you and your siblings necklaces and I can promise you that she will wear this all the time.

6. Rose-Gold Teapot

My mom and I love to make tea and just sit down and talk. This is such a cute teapot that she can always leave on her stove.

7. "Platter & Boards" Book

If your mom is an entertainer, this is a great book for her to have! It has SUCH cute charcuterie boards and can give some really good inspiration.

8. Blanket 

I’m a firm believer in the fact that one can never have enough blankets, especially when they're cute like this.

Because one can never have enough, blankets are therefore also a great gift for moms. This is the perfect blanket to drape over a couch and have her living room looking like perfection.

9. Snakeskin Clutch

I'm buying two of these...one for my mom and one for me. Isn't this such a cute clutch? I love it.

If your mom loves gold and likes to cook, this is perfect for her.

This is the perfect tray that can be put into different rooms of the house. Your mom will love using this in her decor and your bank account will love it because it's less than $30.

15. Coffee Table Books 

Coffee table books are such a great and unique gift for moms. Moms are always looking for more that they can add to their living spaces, and often coffee table books are forgotten. Help her remember by doing it for her and getting her a coffee table book as a gift!

16. Oil Diffuser 

Oil diffusers are a great gift for moms because they make the house look aesthetically pleasing, smell great, and have awesome health benefits. It's a win-win all around. 

17. Essential Oil Kit 

But if you get her an oil diffuser as a gift, make sure she has oils to use in it! This is a great idea of what to tell your sibling to get her because you’re already on top of it and are getting her the better portion of this combo!

18. Instant Pot

Chances are if your mom loves to cook she already has one of these. However, it's the moms who don't love to cook that should really be getting an Instant Pot! It makes cooking SO easy and fast.

19. Amazon Echo 

Amazon Echo's are one of my favorite things in my apartment and is really my own personal assistant ;). My sister got one for my mom last year and she LOVES it. She likes it mostly for playing music but there's so many things you can do with it!

20. Trendy Sweater

How cute is this sweater?! Best part, it's from Amazon. 

I love giving my mom clothes for gifts so I can make sure she is dressing cute haha.

21. Smart Outlet Plugs 

Amazon echos are a great gift for mom like I obviously said. But you know what is even better because it goes with an Amazon Echo? Smart Plugs!

Smart Plugs allow you to tell Alexa what you want to turn off and on. This can be so nice because you can just go in a room and say, "Alexa, turn on all lights" and it will work. 

22. Beauty Bio Rose Quartz Roller

Beauty Bio products are the "it" skincare line right now and there beautiful Rose Quartz roller would make such a good gift!

23. Winter Hat with Fleece Lining

This hat is under $12 (I KNOW!) and has the warmest fleece lining on the inside. I heard another blogger talking about this and ordered like 3 for myself haha. You can't beat the price!

Plus, it comes in a ton of different colors.

24. Barefoot Dreams Robe
gifts for moms

People go CRAZY over Barefoot Dreams bathrobes. So crazy that I am tempted to splurge and buy it myself.

I'll be honest, this isn't the cheapest robe you can find but with how much people love it, I am going to say it's one of those things that will be used everyday for like 10 years (so, it's worth it).

25. Spanx Faux Leather Leggings

If your mom is "in" with style, she will love these Spanx leather leggings. I don't think there is one blogger out there that doesn't have a pair of these!

26. Ugg Slippers 
christmas gift ideas for college students cozy slippers

Slippers make waking up in the morning SO much easier! So, if you want your gift for mom to make her mornings easier, this is the gift for you to give!

27. Portable Charger 

Is it standard that Mom's phones are almost always guaranteed to be dead?!

This cute Mophie charging case solves that issue and allows moms to always have a backup charger so they can never have the excuse of "My phone was dead..." (yeah, whatever 😉 ).

28. Electric Wine Opener 

We all know that the way to Mom's heart is through wine ;). Get her something that makes it easier to get her "juice" with this great yet inexpensive gift idea for moms!

29. Gold and Black Air Fryer

Is this black and gold air fryer not the chicest air fryer you've ever seen?! We like EVERYTHING to be cute so why not have the air fryer looking just as good as the rest of your moms decor? We're all in.

30. Slip Silk Pillowcase

    This is looks so fancy and relaxing that I almost think I need to buy it for myself. But I think that YOU need to buy it a gift for mom! What better way to tell her that you love her and want her to be comfortable and relax than with an electric massage pillow? 

31. Fluffy Slippers

If the UGG slippers are out of budget (don't worry - we get it) than these are the perfect option. They are so soft and around $20 dollars.

32. Star Sweater

Here's another really cute sweater option for a trendy mom. I know a mom that is more simple in style probably wouldn't wear this but if your mom is a little more bold this is SO cute!

33. UGG Sock Set

Last but not least, this amazing set of UGG slippers! How cozy do these look?!

This post was all about the best gifts for moms.
