With barely any space for shoes, coats, and clean clothes in a college closet, dirty laundry is squeezed into any nook and cranny available. The inevitable result? Clean clothes fraternizing with the sweaty, haven’t-been-washed-in-three-weeks enemy. Secure an easy truce in the battle between clean and dirty laundry with these five Bed Bath and Beyond closet organizing essentials.

Wonder Hangers: The fastest way to maximize closet space is utilization of the Wonder Hangers. These collapsing hangers hold up to five garments but only take up the space of one hanger. Triple closet space and storage room as your college students expands a high school wardrobe to one of subtle sophistication at college.  

Two-Tier Adjustable Garment Rack: The ultimate peace keeper between clean and dirty clothes. This two-tier garment rack expands and contracts to your needs and is easily portable on wheels. Lower racks are included for additional shoe storage, and its heavy duty build can accommodate the thickest of winter coats. Garments are easily accessible and beautifully displayed. Winter boots, rain boots, and athletic shoes can dry on the bottom shoe racks without contaminating the entire closet. Everyone wins.  

Real Simple 6- Shelf Sweater Organizer: This storage technique is well utilized among space savvy students because of its roomy shelves and additional accessory pockets. It is perfect for T-shirts, tank tops, sweaters, and jeans. At the end of the year, its soft material is easy to fold, pack, and store away.

Crystal Clear Over-the-Door Shoe Bag: This over-the-door storage holds up to 26 pairs of shoes, is easy to assemble and disassemble, and protects footwear with clear coated vinyl. Some type of over-the-door shoe storage is absolutely essential for every college student, but the bonus of this shoe bag is that it can be utilized as storage for hats, purses, and even scarves because of its build and design. Multitasking college students love multipurpose storage.

Real Simple Triple Sort Fold-Away Hamper: Three separate compartments for whites, lights, and darks easily disguise dirty laundry outside the closet. The compartments are removable on laundry day and easy to reattach. With dirty laundry piling up in the closet, friends will instantly notice that unpleasant musty towel aroma on clean clothes. But taking the problem out of the closet and sorting it by colors will only bring compliments and awe.  

Don’t allow the one you love to be caught in a rut between clean and dirty laundry. Call in the big guns from Bed Bath and Beyond.

College Visits: Be There to Show You Care

No votes yet

Oh, the joys of college visits. Parents drive for hours while their teenager snores in the backseat until they reach the campus. Then they attend an informational meeting led by a peppy college student who is employed by the admissions office, and this person cleverly highlights the college’s bright spots and manages to answer any question thrown his or her way, even if the answer has little to do with what was asked. Parents listen intently, especially when tuition is mentioned, and the potential students yawn and glance at cell phones. After a half hour or so, everyone is whisked away to tour the campus, which, they are assured, is the most picturesque, the most accessible, the safest, the greenest, etc. Tour guides point to buildings and give them apparently meaningful names and present a recently cleaned dorm room to the group’s inspection.

College Costs HOW Much?! Financial Aid Tips to Prevent You from Losing Your Mind

No votes yet

Today, two-thirds of college students have to take out loans to pay for their education, and the average borrower graduates with close to $27,000 in debt!  Right now, the standard repayment schedule is 10 years – meaning that your kids will likely have kids of their own before their college tuition is paid for!

Wouldn’t it be nice to help them come up with a payment plan that doesn’t need to be paid back (and, no, I’m not talking about winning the lottery, suddenly agreeing to a contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers, or going on a bank robbing spree).
Instead, your kids can get scholarships and grants.  Neither has to be paid back.  But to get them, you (and your kids) will have to do some work now, before they head off to school.
To make things easier, try some of these tips!
