Fall fitness for your room

Although it may seem difficult, there are ways to organize a messy room. With a new school year just starting, it’s easy to become unorganized under all the new paperwork and supplies that are given out by professors and on-campus clubs. However, there are organizational supplies that can help even the messiest student be a straight-A organizer.

“A portable file keeper is essential when trying to organize your life between college and home life,” Michele Joy Fitzgerald, a sophomore early childhood and elementary education major, said. This file keeper can hold anything from a social security card to a great college paper that got an A. It’s nice to have important documents in one secure spot.

A way to organize a messy desk area is to have desk organizers. Little containers can hold papers clips and staples, where as the larger containers can hold pens, pencils and scissors. With everything organized, it will be easier to find when it is needed.

To keep clothes organized, sophomore Billy Bacovin, human resources major, suggests “ha clothes up and putting the rest in the drawers.” He also recommends hanging the clothes up that are intended to be worn the next day. This solves confusion and time in the morning before class.

Other accessories that can help keep clothes and closets neat and orderly are shoe organizers and stackable drawers. Shoeorganizers help pair up shoes and eliminate clutter on the floor. Stackable drawers can hold other clothes that do not fit in drawers, or can be a home for hair products and accessories. Freshman political science major Dan Connors also suggests “a laundry basket” to help separate the clean clothes from the dirty ones.

Bed, Bath and Beyond is a great store to buy these necessary organizational items. Most items will be in the under $30 range, such as a shoe organizer for $19.99. K-Mart, Wal-Mart and Target will also have all of the supplies too.
