How to Get Your Bag Ready for Back to School
With school starting up again soon, you will need to be organized to make sure you are prepared for all of your classes and have all the other essentials you might need. Now is the time to figure out what you will need on a daily basis, what you can leave at home or throw out, and the best way to organize it so that you can find what you need easily.
The first step is to choose the right bag. A backpack is generally the roomiest, easiest, and most comfortable way to carry books and other school supplies, but many girls and teens prefer a tote or messenger bag. Choose one that will work for you in a style that you will enjoy carrying to school every day. Just make sure it is big enough for everything you will need and that it has compartments to keep things separate and easy to find.
Take everything out of your current bag. Get rid of anything that you obviously don’t need and then ask yourself how often you use the other things and if you need to carry them with you to school every day.
There might be some things you always seem to need but don’t have in your current bag, such as extra pens or lotion. Think about any emergency supplies you would like to keep on hand.
Group the things you need into categories, such as notebooks, pens and pencils, makeup, hair items, electronics, and emergency supplies.
Arrange things in your bag, making the best use of pockets to separate items into categories. Put things you use a lot in the most accessible areas. Keep electronics in a place where they will be protected from beauty products and food.
Try the system for a few days to a week and see how it works. If you find that something is hard to reach, you can rearrange the contents of your bag until you find an arrangement that works the best for you. Clean your bag once a month or more frequently if it starts to get messy.
