Hey Hearters!
I know school is starting to get hectic with all the projects and homework- and so is your backpack! You need some organization in your life so you don't lose any important papers. As an organization junkie, I am here to give you few tips on how to stay organized.

TIP 1: BINDERS AND FOLDERS
Binders and folders are a great way to keep all your papers for all your classes organized and it's all in one place not stuffed and wrinkled in the bottom of your backpack. Getting dividers for your binder would be really helpful as well

TIP 2: LEAVE IT IN CLASS
If your teacher gives you a folder and/or notebook that can be left in class, just leave it in there unless you need to. When you leave it in class, you won't have to worry about accidently leaving something at home. Also, that's one less thing in your backpack which means a lighter backpack and less weight on your shoulders!

TIP 3: TOSS IT/LEAVE IT AT HOME
When you get graded papers or you just have old notes, leave them at home or throw it away. That also helps keep your backpack uncluttered and gives you a lighter backpack. I go through my backpack and take out all the papers I no longer need/use and separate them into two piles; toss pile and keep pile. I recycle all the papers I put in the toss pile and I keep all the papers that I think I will need later in storage containers I got from Wal-Mart.

TIP 4: WEEKLY CLEAN OUT
Every week or every other week I go through my backpack and clean out all the trash, uncessary papers, and take out stuff I don't need. That way I can prevent bugs form coming into my backpack and I have a nice, clean backpack for the new week!

If you read this far thanks! I apoligize for any errors because as I wam writing this I'm struggling to stay awake XD. Hopefully these tips help!!!
Kisses,
