Coffee makers can be a student’s best friend…especially during finals. But coffeemakers don’t hold a monopoly on making coffee. One easy way to brew coffee without the coffeemaker is to wrap about two tablespoons of grounds in a coffee filter and tie with a string. Then pour boiling water and let the coffee seep.


Use a hanger as a towel holder


A college dorm is not a place to boast of excess space. And towel storage takes a lot of space, but it doesn’t have to. Use clothes hangers to hang your towels for later use.

Now that we’re well into the mp3 era CDs are becoming somewhat outdated. But if your thinking about getting rid of your old CD tower consider this. Use that tower as a bathroom shelf organizer. Simply create bigger slots by removing excess CD dividers.


Save the remaining uncooked pasta in a Pringles can


Cooking pasta just for yourself is always a problem simply because most people can’t eat a whole pound in one or two sittings, and then you don’t know what to do with the rest of the spaghetti especially after you’ve ripped open the box. That’s why you should always keep empty Pringles cans somewhere.
