I haven’t really shopped at Bed, Bath & Beyond since I stopped needing extra-long twin sheets, but maybe I should start checking the dorm essentials department more regularly. The other day, I noticed a good-looking felt bedside storage pocket on their website. It hangs from the bed (simply tuck the flap under the mattress and the pocket hangs over the side) and can hold a cell phone, tablet, remote controls, magazines, eyeglasses—whatever you need within easy reach of your bed.
Intrigued, I searched for more bedside caddies on the market. While there are many versions that look like they belong on a 747 holding an in-flight menu, I did find some tasteful ones. Here are five.
