College Essentials For Your Recent Graduate!

Graduation is an exciting time! Families and friends gather to celebrate how far you’ve come and to help you open the next chapter of your life: college! You should change it up this year and instead of giving your recent graduate money,  give your graduate the gift of organization! Here are some perfect ideas for the next chapter and to help get a jump start on some college essentials.

Rolling Laptop DeskThis is great for saving space in your dorm room. Don’t worry about spending extra money on a large desk that takes up too much space.  You can even sit on your bed and roll this laptop desk over to you and work there. Another great use is when you’re watching a movie on your laptop. Pull up full screen, set your computer on this stand, and sit back and enjoy the movie without your computer overheating on your lap. We all know how small those dorm rooms can be,  so save as much space as you can. Your clothes will need a space on the floor to be thrown anyways.

Laptop bag

Messenger and Laptop Bag – This size bag is perfect for most standard laptop sizes. Having a travel laptop bag that is not too bulky and that can easily be carried like a messenger bag is essential for campus life and traveling home for the holidays.

Cabidor Hinge Mounted Closet – Cabidor makes several styles of the hinge mounted organizer. I wish I would have had one of these around while I was in college.  So much space can be saved with this because it allows you to have an extra storage cabinet in your room without taking up any space whatsoever!

The Jewelry Cabidor is perfect for girls with lots of jewelry. I love that there is a mirror inside the cabinet as well as a full length one on the back!

The Full Size Mirrored Cabinet is great for bathroom storage or extra bedroom storage. Simply hook onto any door hinge in your dorm. There is a full length mirror on the back of the cabinet and the interior is completely customizable.


Pop Up Micro Mesh Clothes Hamper – It is very difficult to keep your clothes off of the floor when you have thrown them there after a long night of studying.  At least when you do need to collect your dirty laundry, you have a light weight hamper to do it with. Folds flat to put away while not in use and is light enough to transport your dirty clothes in on your trip to the laundry mat or Mom and Dads.


Over the Door Shoe Organizer – Blends right in with your door while holding your extra shoes when not in use. This organizer is great for saving closet space and keeping your floor clutter and shoe free.


Chalk Wall Organizer – Stay organized by keeping your school schedule handy. This Organizer has the days of the week to write in notes as well as your schedule. It can also hold other office supplies.


All of these items will help you save space in your dorm and make your graduates life much easier. Get them off to a great start and congratulations to the Class of 2014 from Organize-It!

Happy National Donut Day!!

Enjoy our favorite kind of donut on us ;)
