Dorm Eating: “Kitchen” Space

Today I thought it would be fun to show you my “kitchen space” in my dorm room. When you are as restricted in space and equipment as a dorm room, you have to get creative!

Here is my “pantry.” We have the same type of desk in most of the dorms, so I have made a habit of keeping all my food in the large bottom drawer. Highlights: all of my oatmeal ingredients, dried fruit, peanuts, and apple cider vinegar.

What I did was even better, though. Will’s sister graduated from college the year before I graduated from high school, so I was allowed to take her old mini-fridge to school. Buying/borrowing used is a great option!

Right now it is just being used to store extra beauty supplies, cheese and chocolate.

Oh, look! An apple I forgot about!

And here is my work space: the top of my fridge. Here is where my hot pot, filtered water pitcher, tea, and mug hang out. It’s a small space, but it serve my purposes. 🙂

  1. Looks better than my “dorm kitchen” did! And I had the EXACT same mini fridge! My dad got it from a friend who’s youngest son just graduated college for free and so I got to take it to school with me. It had been around for MANY years of college! It wasn’t great but it worked for the most part! Haha.

      Nice! Old free fridges are the best!

      My favorite thing about this fridge is that it stores beer in the summer at my future in-laws’ house. This year when they were defrosting it so I could take it back, My fiance’s dad asked if I wanted to take it as is…filled with beer bottles. It’s funny because I hate beer and my campus is dry.
