• Tell Your Friends

The thing that most people completely ignore when it comes to dorm life is the serious lack of square footage. I know this because I am getting ready to start my senior year of college, and I did just that. Even the most neat of neat freaks is bound to be late for that 8 AM class causing the unavoidable dispersal of random clothing articles, homework and towels strewn across the floor.

My number one tip for 12 X 9 living comes from a wise woman here at HGTV. She told me at the beginning of my wonderful internship to “create what inspires YOU”. I’d like to offer that same advice to students facing college life. Inspiration is likely to be stifled by the crazy amount of “stuff” you are tempted to pack into this tiny space. When you are creating your dorm room, focus instead on how much of YOU can be placed there.

And remember that fashionable must first be functional. After all, college is first and foremost about study and learning to live well independently. Be creative and take risks but be realistic and practical and understand that most dorms don’t come with housekeepers. If you need some inspiration and real-life tips, check out these stylish savvy dorms that range from fun to flashy.

  1. Artwork is a really easy and fairly inexpensive way to turn a dorm room into your home. Plus it's very easy to take with you when you leave.

    Everything should have a place and everything should be in its place so you can grab it in the morning when you are only half awake. If it doesn't have a place, send it home.

  4. Hello people.

    I have something to say, about AloeVera, something about which you wrote above, about health and Weight Loss Tips… For a long time, I and my friend use the products of the Forever Living Company. We usually see the good results and also we make money for our families and we are happy. My friend works with Aloe Vera in the company of Forever Living has more than 5 years (My friend works ONLY in the flp company and has a wife and three children). I know Aloe vera products for weight loss management for a long time, but a year ago, began working as a distributor in the Forever Living Products.

    Of course, job is not easy, but in no other case, You really can earn so much money with so much fun and smiling faces around…

    So if you want to discuss something about your post, and about my experience with aloe Vera products for nutritional, I'll always be glad to talk.

    Best regards from Washington state and have a nice day!
