How to keep your school bag organised
  1. Keep all of your work in folders. This will stop the paper getting crushed and messy. It would help if you had a separate folder for each class because all your work will be in one place.
  2. Keep all your pens and stationary in a pencil case. I take two with me, one for pens and pencils, the other for colours which I might not need every lesson.
  3. Carry a small canvas fold away bag with you in case you have a lot of books to take home one day.
  4. Get a cosmetics bag to put random things in such as lip balms or headphones - this help you find things in a rush which are normally at the bottom of your bag.
  5. Put all of your money in a purse. If you don’t want to carry your normal purse and a lot of money get a smaller one.
  6. Get a key ring for your keys - you really don’t want to lose these!

I Should Try.
