20 Ideas To Help Students Get Organized

by Maria Gracia

You have a bright, new school year ahead of you, ready once again to help prepare you for your future. Now is the perfect time for you to start off on the right foot, and get organized. Here are a few tips to help you manage your time, avoid clutter, set goals, and stay on an organized path to success.

  1. GOALS. Set realistic goals at the beginning of the school year, and break those large goals into mini-goals. Write these goals down on index cards and keep them in a highly visible place where you can see them every day. Writing down your goals makes them more concrete, and motivates you to keep working towards them.

  2. DONíT RUSH. Wake up early enough for school to arrive well ahead of time. If you need 30 minutes to get up, shower and dress, pad that time by waking up at least 45 minutes prior to your departure. To ensure you donít turn off your alarm clock and go back to sleep, place your clock at the far end of your room. This way, you actually have to get out of bed to turn it off, and youíre most likely to stay up.

  3. PREPARE YOUR WARDROBE. Before you go to bed each night, choose, iron and lay out your clothes for the next day. This way, youíll be all set to dress and go in the morning.

  4. AVOID CLUTTER. At the beginning of the school year, you have no clutter. Be careful not to build clutter as the year progresses. Create separate folders for school announcements, tests that have been graded, papers you must give to your parents and so on. As papers become outdated, such as an event that has passed, toss them immediately.
  5. MAKE TO DO LISTS. Always spend a minimum of 15 minutes per day, preparing your To Do list for tomorrow. In doing so, you will know exactly what tasks you have to accomplish the next day. 

  6. EFFECTIVE STUDY AREA. Designate a quiet, well-lit area for studying. Donít study in front of the television, or in an area of your home where youíre bound to be distracted. Hang a Do Not Disturb sign on your door. If you canít find a quiet spot at home, go to the library. In addition, you should study while sitting at a table or desk. Avoid studying in a very comfortable chair or a bed, which may cause you to feel drowsy.

  7. GET YOUR BEAUTY SLEEP. Get a good nightís rest. This will ensure you are alert and ready to learn the following day.

  8. AN APPLE A DAY. Eat three healthy meals each day, along with fruit for snacks. Donít overload on sweets, which cause many people to feel tired.

  9. AVOID OVERLOAD. While you may sign up for extra school activities, such as basketball or cheerleading, donít take on too much. First determine how much study time you need. Then, choose one or two recreational activities that you enjoy.

  10. USE A STUDENT PLANNER. Use a good student planner or organizer. The ones that have pocket folders, dividers and planning calendars are ideal.
