The Art of Organization
The record keeping is more than just boxes of notes; it’s the creative act itself. Gay Talese
Before the dust from your move-in settles into vaguely geometric patterns, sweep it up. Do you hatch your best ideas while cleaning? Mechanical sweepers empower you to straighten up without violating Quiet Hours or disturbing your napping roommate. If you’ve got less floor space than a walk-in closet, a handheld vacuum may be all you need to touch up carpets, upholstery, and high-traffic areas. Whether tidying up is part of your greater procrastination process or simply a weekly chore, we’ve got your carpets covered.
Does chaos reign in your closet? Whip those subjects into shape with shoe racks, sweater organizers, and hanging shelves--no engineering degree required. Who needs a knothole when you’ve got a multi-purpose pocket organizer for all of your gear? If you’ve got bigger bundles to sort, sift through our selection of canvas cubbies, periodical racks, and utility baskets.
Organize and accent your dorm room with a vintage-style trunk. Tucking last semester’s books into an explorer trunk-turned end table will leave you feeling like you’re trekking the Green Hills of Africa rather than just writing a dissertation on it. Compact, stackable cubes allow you to save space while managing loose ends. Barracks-style footlockers keep all your out-of-season stuff at your feet and out of sight.
You might not have landed an internship yet, but that’s no reason not to show up to lecture hall with your best shirt forward. Sling an ironing board over the door to so you can smooth out wrinkles and dash out the door Superman-style to make that interview or presentation at a cry-for-help’s notice.
We can’t promise you’ll never lose another sock again, but our collapsible hampers will keep all your unmentionables contained--until it's time to air them in the laundromat. Some hampers even include a pouch to stash quarters and detergent.
When you head home for holidays or pack for spring break, heed organization experts: pack everything you think you’ll need, and then take out half. Be kind to your back. Snag a suitcase set on wheels. Checking a brightly-colored backpack or pink giraffe duffel will help your suitcase surface in a sea of black on the luggage carousel.
