Life is hard, college shouldn’t be.
1. Coffee Pot Ramen
Most dorm rooms don’t allow hot plates, and who needs them anyway? Most rooms allow a small coffee pot. If the cafeteria’s closed, heat up some ramen.You can also make oatmeal, hot dogs, soft boiled eggs, and, apparently for the dedicated home-brewer/alcoholic, beer.
2. DIY Speakers
Don’t waste money on speakers, plop your phone into a cup and it will multiple the sound.
3. Tortillas Are Just Edible Plates
Plus, they’re about the same price as paper plates, but way more delicious.
4. Make Your Schedule Your Lock Screen
Take it from someone who had to drop multiple classes, just because they forgot the class existed. “Wait, should I be somewhere on Thursdays at 1?”
5. Use Egg Cartons to Cool Down Your Computer
You’ll be typing so many essays (watching so much Netflix) that your computer is bound to overheat.
6. Stack Shirts Vertically
Space is limited in dorms, stack your shirts vertically so you know which ones are which.
7. Mini-Fridge Solution
It takes up less space and it’s never falling out.
8. Dryer Sheets + Fan = Instant Air Freshner
Not that you’ll use this advice, but if you take a toilet paper roll, put a dryer sheet on the end, and blow your smoke through it, your RA shouldn’t smell a thing.
9. Never Wash a Plate Again
10. Become an Animal
Just throw away all the good manners you’ve ever been taught. Survival of the fittest, baby. Hoodies are now feedbags.
