I have always had my own room growing up. I had a queen bed, full book shelf, and walk in closet. So you could imagine the struggle I faced when I got to college and had about half the size I was used to. With the transition to college came a lot of elimination and down sizing. 
I've found that the key is to make space. The biggest trick for me was to loft my bed. It sounds weird at first, but I have been doing it since freshmen year and it has made life so much easier. I've always hid my storage bins and cardboard boxes of off-season clothes tucked beneath my bed. Clear plastic bins and cardboard don't make for the cutest room, that's why I place these stripe bins in the front to cover up the back. I've put in some extra throw pillows I have, clothing that I need to shoot soon, and some backup beauty products I don't use on the daily.
The closet is another great place for storage! A lot can be done in there. Although I don't have pictures of it (mainly because it's not very visually appealing) The closet has both floor space, hanging space, and mine has a shelf. You can fit so many shoes, bags, and clothes in there! And if you're like me that makes up most of my belongings.
I like to have my duvet hang over my bed to cover the majority of my plastic bins underneath, and then have my cuter storage bins in the front that have a more organized look, and have the things that I need most often for easy access! My hamper and shower caddy are tucked under there because I don't like having them out in the open, but need to get to them on a daily basis. The things that I need less often like off season clothing is in the bins that are in the back. These keep me really organized because if there is a super warm day all of a sudden, I can just reach under my bed to grab a few things instead of going to the basement and having to dig through my storage things. 


As I mentioned before, my closet isn't the cutest setup, but it gets the job done. The majority of my sweaters and nicer tops and coats are hung on the hangers, and then I have all my folded clothes in a drawer. This shelf space above has been very handy, especially in the winter because that's where I have all my scarves, hats, and gloves. The top shelf has also been great for the bags that I use most often. To keep my closet organized, I use a color coordinated system which you can see I have a lot of whites and grays in the winter. On the right are all my coats and jackets. It's easy to have your closet get out of hand, especially on the top, which is why I have little bins to keep things like my hats and gloves in.
