Box Fan Lasko/Walmart Even though your RA says there's a great breeze through your dorm, they're probably lying. Install a box fan in your window to survive those humid nights. (P.S. dorms get stuffy in the winter, too) 2. Wax Warmers Yankee Candle Does the smell of your last night's take-out refuse to leave your room? Your dorm probably doesn't allow candles, but they may allow wax warmers. These are a great and safe alternative that can get rid of any unwanted odors. 3. Floor Lamp with Shelves Target Your dorm may look big enough from the photos, but there probably won't be enough room for a side table. These lamps are great for storing bedside essentials without taking up your roommate's space. 4. Drawer Dividers Walmart It's easy to throw your stuff in a drawer and forget about it, but these dividers will make your space just a little more organized. 5. Covered Trash Can Target Do yourself and your roommates a favor and get a covered trash can. Dorms are notoriously smelly and stuffy, so this small adjustment will make a huge difference. 6. Step Stool Walmart This one is dedicated to my fellow short people. Your bed will most likely be just high enough where you'll need a running start to get in. Save yourself a bruise on the shin and get a step stool. 7. Storage Ottoman Wayfair This is the most versatile piece of furniture you can get. Use it as storage, a stool, or even a seat! These are great for hiding things like snacks, or blankets I guess... 8. Cube Organizers Home Depot Cube organizers are great because you can use them as a night stand, a table, or storage, a clothing organizer, or even a shoe rack! 9. Foldable Chair Bed Bath and Beyond Someone will come in your room and they will try to sit on your bed...unless you quickly pull out a foldable chair! Cute, comfy, and keeps your precious bed neat and clean. 10. And Mac 'n' Cheese Getty Images Just trust me, okay?
