Schoolwork is always made so much easier when you purchase the proper school supplies. Organization is the key to knowing where everything is, and locating important papers. Proper school supplies will also get you higher grades, because you will always know just where to find things.


1. Make a list of things you need, such as:

  • (Colored) Pencils
  • Pencil Sharpeners
  • Pens
  • Rulers in different lengths
  • Erasers
  • ‘White Out’,
  • Highlighters
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Geometry Set
  • Mini Calculator
  • Textbook


2. Get a studying spot at home.

In stead of spreading all your school supplies all around your house, keep it in that one place. Keep a couple of pencils, pens and rubbers in different jars, don’t just let them flow all over your desk. If your desk has drawers, you shouldn’t just throw random objects into them; mark them. For example, one of them you could use for textbooks, another for old homework, the next for other supplies, and so on.


3. Buy one big folder, or buy many smaller folders for each subject you take.

Keep your papers in there. Don’t be lazy, organize them whenever they get a little untidy. When you get to class, all you’ve got to do is to pull your folder up, and there you have everything you need. You should keep your old notes in a box, you might need them later.


4. Make sure you have a notebook for each subject.

Don’t mix your notes up, it will make it harder for you to find what you’re looking for. Make sure you write nicely, so you can understand what you’ve written later.


5. Having a pencil case is a good idea

That way you can keep all of your pencils, pens, etc. in the pencil case. You’ll know where they are, and you won’t have to look for that one pencil. The case can get quite messy, so you should throw away broken pencils and everything you don’t need.


6. Clean up your locker and/or your backpack.

This will make everything easier if you’re late for class. Using a shelf in your locker will help hold more books and binders too. If you organize your books so that each subject has one spot, just grab the pile. In your backpack, keep all your books and folders in the biggest “room”.


7. If you’re using your laptop to take notes, clean it up once in a while.

Make one folder called “School”, and in that, make other folders named with the subject you’ll be using it for. Place all of your documents in their right place.


We hope this helps you and your children get ready for their first day of school this year! Whether it’s the first day of kindergarten, high school or the first day of college, these are some great tips!

Thanks for reading! 🙂
