Done with College? How to Clean out Your Dorm Room in a Jiffy (295 hits)

Your college years are the best years of your life, but they canít last forever. When itís time to leave your dorm room, make it easier on yourself by taking advantage of these tips for a quick and efficient moving process.

Make Your Possessions Pull Double Duty

Moving out your dorm room in a quick manner will require a fair bit of innovation and cleverness on your part. If youíve run out of boxes to pack your belongings into, simply start using your pillowcases. A pillowcase is durable, possesses no holes, and can be washed. A pillowcase will make a great container in which to pack small, loose items. Pack your desk drawer contents into the pillowcase, tie the top of the pillowcase in a knot, and set it aside to be packed into your car. Additionally, empty laundry baskets and hampers will also make sturdy and convenient moving containers when youíre looking to moving out of your dorm room in a jiffy.

Junk Removal

During the course of your school year, you likely accumulated quite a bit of junk in your dorm room. Broken furniture, broken bicycles, old shoes, ruined clothes, and worn school equipment should all be thrown away to make your moving process much quicker. Unfortunately, universities and colleges donít grant access to dumpsters. This prevents you from being able to throw away large items. Calling a company that provides garbage removal services
to clean out your dorm room of broken, large, or old items will expedite your moving process and rid you of the burden of moving or throwing away the items yourself.

Donít Fold Everything

Cleaning the clothes out of your dresser drawers is one of the most time-consuming tasks during the moving out process. You can choose to skip this process and free up a lot of extra time by not folding the clothes. While itís understandable that you donít want wrinkled clothes, this is a corner you can cut when youíre wanting to move out quickly.

Pack Ahead of Time

Moving out of a college dorm means that you have a moving date predetermined by the university. As this date edges closer, start the moving process by packing and sorting your things ahead of time. A little bit each night for a month will find you ready to go in a jiffy once moving day arrives.

Enlisting the help of a few college friends would also make your dorm room move exceptionally quick. Just make sure to remind them a few days before your moving date about their agreement to help you. College is a hectic time for students, so they may forget about agreeing to help.
