Question 30: How can you get organized?

Sometimes I look in my backpack or closet and think: Will I ever get organized? That's what GrammarGeek is wondering about:

Dear PLS,
How do I keep myself more organized? I am always falling behind with my homework, and it's really troublesome. I hate using an agenda and I never use it...

GrammarGeek, 12

I say GrammarGeek is on her way to being better organized. Why? Because she realizes that it's a problem and she's looking for ways to improve. Here's the best advice I've seen on the subject.

Take the quiz to see how organized - or disorganized - you are!

Organize, Focus, Get It Done

Take the Organization Quiz

OK, Pink Locker Girls, what's your best advice for clearing the clutter and getting organized?

Think pink!

PublishDeleteSpam501-50 of 242 1 Grammer Geek, just work a little every day, and eventually being organized will be part of your everyday routine! That's what I did! Like, at the beginning of every class, look on the board at the homework section and copy down the HW into your agenda. It works for me!

I know this has nothing to do with this, but where is the first period predictor? How do I find it? I searched all over the website but I couldn't find it. Thank you in advance.

I think you should clear out the disorganised space by doing little by little everyday.

Well I think that organizing is fun especially if you have a friend to help you are your mom.personlly like organizing sometimes I want to freak out when I do it because theres so much.Here is some tips, first get all the stuff out of your backpacks.Then start by putting books and notebooks together then next if you have any extra stuff like pencils then put them in a poch in the sides of your backpack.If you don't have any side pockets then just set them on the bottom of your bag.And last put your books in right on top and you got every thing organized if you still need help then right back good luck

Lets just say, stuff goes in, but always doesn't come out of my bag(it's probably somewhere in the fourth dimension :).

Stay organized by keeping track of what goes in your backpack/purse, and what goes out. My purse has a pocket in which I put candy wrappers, trash, that kind of stuff. When I come home, I make sure to throw everything away! Use your pockets!

I use a purse, a comfy, pocket one. (one with lots of pokets) find your school schedual. mark the times were youd need your bag, and when you wouldnt. then, put book covers on your books with tabs on the saying wat they are. orginize your locker for quick grabs, and then orginize a binder that would hold ALL your folders and your agenda. make sure you ALWAYS have a pencil with you(clip it on binder) and you'll be set. oh and P.S. (put reminders in binder with sticky notes) :^) have fun with it.
