It's that time of year again, when college students everywhere are starting to think about moving into their dorms or apartments. No matter where you live, as a cash-strapped college student, there's a good chance it's a space the size of a walk-in closet. That means you need to make use of every square inch of space you have, and that's where Ikea comes in.

The brand designed a space-saving mirror that will seriously change your life (for the better). The mirror is a hanger, jewelry holder, and phone stand all in one. It's like a three-in-one mirror—which is exactly what you need as a college student. Your bed will probably take up a quarter of the room, along with your desk—not to mention you're probably going to have a roommate. The last thing you want is a big bulky mirror taking up the little space you have left.

Here's how it works: The mirror has a small circular base with two poles. One pole has the mirror, while the other has two trays for you to stow your phone, keys, air pods, or any other last-minute items you'd need before rushing to class.

Behind the mirror there is a pole where you can hang your jackets, clothes, and anything else you don't feel like folding up (because who actually folds all their clothes when they're in college?) But wait, there's more: On the side of the mirror, there are two smaller poles where you can hang jewelry, scarves and bags.

One satisfied customer wrote a review: "I received the Valet Stand two weeks ago. The features make it so convenient. I place the hanging clothes on the back pole...pocketbook on the left pole. Then I place the cell phone, Pod’s and Apple Watch to charge."

At $69, it's a lot cheaper than buying a nightstand, full-length mirror and clothes rack individually, too. Talk about a smart buy.
