Dorm rooms are notoriously cluttered. Tight quarters with lots of stuff and little space to store your essentials. Dorm room organization is doable but definitely requires a game plan for optimization of even the smallest of spaces. Truffle bags and organizers can help college students stay organized and keep their dorm rooms clutter-free. Just because the space is limited, doesn’t mean it has to be disorganized.
Organizing Small Spaces
For the best approach to organizing small spaces, we recommend breaking down the dorm room environment into more manageable vignettes. That way you can prepare for all the essentials required for dorm room success, and best utilize every inch of the space for clutter-free storage. We’ve broken down the main storage zones for you below, and paired them with our favorite Truffle bag that’s perfectly suited for the job. Let’s dive in!
1. Bathroom Organization
Often times in dorm environments the bathroom is very much a shared space. Making organization of bathroom supplies extremely important. It’s best to keep things labeled and grouped together so as to ensure nothing goes missing, or gets left behind.
The Clarity Jumbo Train Case is the perfect carryall for all things bathroom-centric. From skincare supplies, to haircare serums, to your toothbrush and shaving cream. The Jumbo Train Case has earned its title as the perfect on-the-go jumbo cosmetic bag. The Train Case is tried and tested, durable and functional, all while maintaining the cute and chic design every new student looks for.
2. Dorm Desk Organization
Desks are a notorious clutter-zone in dorm room spaces, as it’s so easy for them to become surfaces where a day’s worth of items are dropped after walking through the door. To avoid that, we recommend setting up a system for categorizing school-centric essentials for studying. After all, a clean desk is a clear mind!

Utilize the larger pouch for tech tablets, smaller ones for favorite note-taking pens, and medium sized ones for expert cord management.
