Back to School Organisation Tips



Welcome to another back to school post, again with summer drawing to a close, routine begins to come back and organisation is needed. I thought that I would share some tips to stop you from becoming too stressed when the new school term begins.

1. Pack your Bag the Night Before

This I sometimes don't stick to, but it really does help you to be calmer in the morning and saves time. When I know my bag is packed and ready to go then it means you haven't forgotten anything in the mad rush in the morning and you will be prepared for any lessons that you have that day.

2. Do Homework/ Coursework

I know it can be a pain doing homework or coursework but let's face it, it's not going to go away the longer you put off doing it. As soon as you get your homework try and do it the same day, that way what you've learnt is fresh in your mind, it will take less time and you won't have to stress the night before it's due.

3. Make Lists

I am a lover of lists but I strongly suggest them. If you have a lot that you need to do write it ALL down. It really helps to clear the mind and ensures that you don't forget anything you need to do. Also, it's incredibly satisfying ticking something off that list.

4. File Everything

In my house, I have a basket with folders in that house all of my school stuff. Each folder corresponds to a different subject and anything related to that subject go in there. That way in the future when it comes to revising I have old books, any papers or leaflets to help. Also, it means that you don't lose anything. The same thing goes for filing things on your computer. I have my own file with each school subject and anything document relating to that subject goes in there, again it means you don't lose anything.

5. Have a Designated School Section

I have a desk downstairs with all school things around there so I know where everything is. If you have a specific place where you go to do homework/revision you will be more focused as that's where you know you need to work. Having a particular place really helps to motivate you; fill your space with cute stationary as well to keep you feeling motivated to work.

Those are some tips that help me keep organised throughout the year - what do you do to stay organised?
