Coming from someone who shared about 100 feet of space with her younger sister for 15 years, I understand the struggle of the small bedroom. Things get cluttered and lost, and you feel like you have no way to organize your incredibly small space. For others who know the small bedroom life, check out these 15 helpful organization tips and hacks, perfect for making your space a little more enjoyable.


1 . DIY Corner Shelf

These folder holders can be found (for pretty cheap, too) at many office supply stores. Paint one your favorite color and nail it into your wall for some easy corner shelving!

2. Under Bed Storage

Under bed storage and so much easier than you’d think! No need for ten plastic bins all crammed in one space. These cheap shelf units can be flipped over and used for cute, simple storage.

3. Hidden Power Strip

Power strips, as essential as they are for our millions of gadgets, are not only ugly but cause major clutter. Storing a power strip in a bedside drawer creates the perfect space for a hidden and organized charging station.

4. Door Storage

You might not consider it necessarily, but your door is a blank space just waiting to be utilized! Use magnetic strips, cork boards or hooks to hang up jackets or accessories in style.

5. Rolled Shirts

T-shirts can make for messy drawers (especially when you have as many as I do). To make things more organized, roll t-shirts instead of folding them. This makes shirts easier to find and makes drawers easy to navigate.

6. Clothes Separator

For thinner clothing – like tights and underwear – clothes separators are the best trick.

9. Overhead Lighting

I love this trick. Use glue or hanging strips to put some light on your overhead shelving. No need for lamps or getting out of bed constantly to turn the light on and off!
