Above the Refrigerator or Microwave You most likely have a refrigerator in your dorm. Whether or not you have a microwave on top of it, use the top as a small shelf to put things on. We suggest you put food and other kitchen supplies here (it is, after all, right above the refrigerator or microwave). Buy a locker shelf to double the space, and put cereal, soup, napkins, and plates here.
Add a Hutch (small bookcase) to you Dorm Desk to give you more vertical storage. Spray paint a kitchen cabinet organizer to become a file and binder holder, gold painted letters were added to basic metal bookends to give a personalized touch, penny jars from Target are a fun way to store items.
