You head to camp armed with the necessary mad libs, an iPod charger (with speakers), labeled clothes, flashlight and shower flip flops. But now it’s time to get personal. Make your 4 square feet of bunk space as comfy and personalized as possible. Express your personality with this gear and gadgetry  you won’t want to do without.

KIT: Keep it Together

Being organized is key when you have a small space. With separate pockets for each of your important items, a bed organizer is a great way to keep your stuff together. Pens and stationary, address book, headphones, charger, glasses, love notes, emergency money, and any other small items you can think of keeping close at hand all fit in the little compartments so you stay organized.

Whether you're doing your own wash or sending it out to be done, keep your socks in one bag and you'll be less likely to go mismatched accidentally. Of course, if mismatched is in your personal style, wash your socks in this bag anyway, and pair them as you wish. Although the bag in this picture says socks, you can also keep undergarments or other similar items together, too.

Box O' Stuff

Got gear? Keep it stored together under your bed. Whether your thing is sports (mitt, glove, hacky sack, etc.), music, reading, art, drama, kung fu, or anything else, personal passions come with stuff and you can stuff it all right in a box! If a cube like the one pictured here won't fit -- say, if you're on the top bunk of a bunkbed! -- a trunk at the foot of your bed or a bedside locker.

Floor Mat

Even in the heat of summer, mornings out in the woods or up in the mountains can get pretty chilly. Start your day off on the right foot by stepping onto a cozy mat that supports your favorite team! Not into sports? Pick your favorite color, Manga character, A-list celebrity, or TV show - there's probably a soft mat with a theme that showcases what you love.
