Now that you know what supplies you need, get organized. Binders are a great way to keep papers in order, because you can keep your notes and handouts in one place, instead of flipping through a million notebooks and folders.
Snag book covers or paper bags to make your own (also fun to doodle on when you’re bored on the bus!), and make sure you have a great supply of pens and pencils–because you know for sure that if you let someone “borrow” one, you’ll never see it again. You may want a tiny bag or case to keep them in so you don’t have to dig all through your bag right before a test!
Other things to stock up on now (while they’re probably on sale!) so you don’t have to worry about them later: Loose leaf paper, printer paper, printer ink, and poster board.
