Paulit ulit na lang ba ako mag mmove on sa tuwing paparating na ang period ko? Ano baaaa!!! Tired of being emotional. Nakakaiyak maalala ang lahat ng kamalasan ko. Tapos bukas ok na ko noh? Napaka abnormal. Kainis! Pakurot nga! 😂

I just finished my back to school shopping for my 3rd year of college and I wanted to share how I keep all my school work organized: 

1 Binder with dividers: Instead of lugging around multiple binders that I never would fill, I decided to downsize to one binder that I will use for all 5 classes, and use dividers to separate between the pages. The binder will be used to hold all hand outs & worksheets. 

Notebooks: I purchased 5 notebooks (1 for each class) which will allow me to keep detailed notes during class. In first year, I used my laptop for note taking but found myself getting way to distracted so paper and pen is definitely the way to go. 

2 File Folders: to hold any loose papers, bring papers/projects to class and generally keep my bag organized. 

A big pad of paper: I like to keep a large pad of paper next to my computer so I can write down things as they come to me. It allows me to keep all my thoughts in one place and then I can choose what to do with them!

Hard cover small notebook: This notebook is for everything that doesn’t fit into a specific class’s notebook. It could be general knowledge, things from my volunteer work or job. It will stay in my backpack at all times. 

Agenda/planner: Honestly my life saver. I like being able to sync my calendars digitally between my computer/phone/tablet BUT nothing beats being able to write down every single detail of my life into a planner. I love this new one I bought because each day has it’s own page (so much room for activities!)

I hope this inspired you to plan your own back to school shopping!
