You don’t have to spend half your life rummaging through your bag to find something, follow my school bag organisation tips!
1. Start with a bag that is comfy, has lots of pockets, adjustable straps and any specifics you need such as an insulated pocket or drink bottle holder. This may sound like hard work but I am very specific about what I want in a school bag and it has paid off, my school bags usually last at least a couple of years of love!
2. Keep only the necessities or the once weeklies.
If you are unlikely to use it at least once a week, don’t carry it around, obviously things such as panadol can be excluded in this rule but this is your own call.
3. Utilise sewing boxes. I love to keep my hairbands, panadol, cough lollies, bobby pins etc. all organised in a little sewing box. I have multiple of these and each are different with their own dividers.
4. Separate everything into specific parts of the bag. School work, food, medicine, phone/wallet that kind of thing. Give everything an area or place in the bag so that you can have a better idea of where to look for something. This can be done by using little bags, pockets or even just pieces of laminated paper.
5. To maintain this organised bag, pick one day in the week in which to clean it out! Going through and cleaning your school bag once a week will stop things such as mouldy sandwiches and lost permission notes.

Binders. You need them but you hate them. I have saved you the hassle of searching for the perfect set up by showing you my most recent, new and improved binder organised to perfection!
1. Bring every subject, every day. The amount of times people forget to repack their binder in the morning or think that it’s Friday when it’s really Wednesday, I don’t have to worry about any of that! I also don’t have to worry about not having my work from other subjects with me to do in my study periods!
2. I sort by binder/folder in order of subject with manilla folders in between! Manilla folders are the best, I found them in all different colours at Officeworks so I mixed and matched! Punch holes in them too to put them in! You could also use a document holder made for binders or a letter file instead as a separator!
3. Make it interesting! If your binder is boring how are you going to get excited about studying? Make it colourful, engaging, funny, customizable, anything to make you more likely to actually use it! Use washi tape, colouring sheets, glitter, let your imagination run wild!
4. Use a calendar. You have a lot of options on how to do this but whatever you do, have a calendar, I don’t know how people survive without one! You can find free A4 printables online (daily, weekly and monthly ones!) or use a diary and have a pocket/folder for it to go into.
5. Have an assignment schedule easily accessible. Learn how to make your own here: Assignment Organisation!
6. Make a time every week to clean your folder out. It just makes everything easier! Use class time to concentrate on class, not trying to find a piece of paper you got yesterday.
I use a binder like this one because nothing can fall out and it’s good for protecting valuable documents on rainy days!
Enjoy and comment below your own tips!
I this post I will be giving you my tips in school organisation and making sure that you don’t end up in the situation when someone asks you how your assignment is going and you have no idea what they’re talking about!
If you are lucky enough to receive an assessment schedule at the start of the year, don’t lose it! This is the best piece of paper you will ever see!
To make it less confusing and more pretty, add it into your own personal schedule like the one I have attached here: WeeklyAssesmentPlanner! Add in all of your classes at the top and the weeks in the term or year down the side. Print it out and add all of the assessments due into the table!
Enjoy and good luck xxx
