1. Storage. Bins are great, but the problem is where to put them. If you can lift your bed on risers, then use the extra storage under your bed for stowing your stuff. If you have a lofted bed then try some of these solutions.

3. Lighting. Outlets are at a premium so use them wisely. Use sting lights to add ambiance and get the maximum amount of light off one outlet. Alternatively, hang battery operated lantern lights from the ceiling. These use LED bulbs which has brighter light and uses less energy.
