Celiac, Food and the Dorm
First, prioritize. Not only what foods you want where, but the ratio of celiac vs non-celiac related items. I always call myself a simple gal - when I first moved into my dorm, my roommate stared at my couple bags of clothes and school supplies and asked when I was bringing the rest of my things!
In the top drawer, I stuffed my spices, banana ice cream toppings (can you say granola?), oatless oatmeal mix and all my other favorite goodies. The second down houses cereal, baking flours, granola bars, chocolate (it has to be somewhere close!) and extra supplies. Third hides the dishes, pans, Nutribullet, and my other ninja cooking supplies.

To achieve "PRO" level celiac skills, though, there's one final piece of advice: owning it! No matter where I am, it's likely that a snack is perched only a few inches away. Why should my own space - my dorm room - be any different? Yep, I have food lined on my shelves. And my own fridge, microwave and spare freezer.
Sometimes I feel like a weirdo for displaying potatoes and bananas instead of extra family photos, but I like to call mine "living art." And, compared to other shelve decorations, mine certainly don't sit around long enough to catch dust!
