Stay cool with a compact fan
Dorm rooms are notorious for being stuffy and hot. Some don't even have air conditioning. You may not have a lot of floor space for a big fan but this compact clip on fan won't take up any space attached to your bed.
Leave your books at home
If you happen to enjoy reading then a Kindle is a fantastic space saving option. Instead of bringing and then continuing to buy more books that take up space, keep everything on one compact unit that you can take and enjoy anywhere.
