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.
Of course, I have to have a dorm fridge. I would probably recommend buying one over renting one. While it depends on the price to rent through your college versus the price of the fridge you would buy, buying a fridge will likely be cheaper than renting for 4 years.
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.
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. 🙂
