Instead of dropping cash on space-saving hangers, save soda tabs and use them to fit twice the amount of hangers in your closet.

Get a plastic under bed organizer (like this). Cut pieces of heavy posterboard to fit and divide by each weekday. Use it to plan out your weekly outfits in advance or which textbooks/notebooks you'll need for each day.

15. Use removable plastic pods to keep your toiletries organized.
