Whenever I come home from school, my coat always manages to find itself on the floor ... along with many other clothes. Sharing a small dorm room with a college room mate will probably not call for clutter, so some of the things on my college wish list are hooks and coat racks.
Also, I love to display photos and papers and notes and movie ticket stubs, and my college provides a board for each student to hang things on in their dorm, so tape and magnets (and string and glue and ... ooh man) will be my best friends. You guys, I'm too excited to decorate my dorm and make it all pretty. Haha I'm crazy, I know.
