I'm about to start school in a couple of weeks,and I am horrible with organizing. I'm always losing my homework,sheet music,and even workbooks sometimes.
What do you normally do? Does it feel the most comfortable to have one big binder or your backpack or something? What I tried for a while was having separate folders.. one for each class, and the newest & relevant stuff in the front. If there are assignments & information that you don't need to have with you at school then you can either keep it at home in a place you can remember or recycle it if you really don't need it.
Imo it's pretty good to have wherever you keep stuff at in a theme for what it is. For my Japanese class I had a binder that had flattened pocky boxes and origami on it. For my English class, my teacher's last name was Hartz so I had a notebook with hearts on it. xP
The key to organizing, starting a business, or just regaining control of your life is to leverage yourself without the cost of hiring a full staff or even a private assistant here in the states-who has the money for that in this economy?
I've been online outsourcing for almost 10 years now and I can tell you it's the best decision I ever made. But don't try and do it alone--too much trial and error. There is a lot of free information out there on the web--here is one I recommend that offers free training:
Here's to regaining your sanity-
don't let anyone use your locker "if you have one" !
use a planner &and have folders or binders for each class ! !
&and uhm don't know wht else. cause thts wht I usually do (:
I usually have a binder for each subject because the teachers want individulat binders
I love pocky...
