With only a few weeks left of the summer holidays, it’s time to learn how to prepare for school before September begins. The advantage of preparing in advance allows you to begin the school year on a positive note and you’ll stay organized for the rest of the semester.

Kick off the school year stress-free with these steps: 

Step One: Make A List

Ease back into the school year by creating a list of supplies and other items that you will need. Back to school clothing sales begin from mid-July to late August! Make your list of things to buy and each time you purchase an item, check it off from the list.

Step Two: Label Your Stuff and Gather Your Textbooks

Labeling your binders/notebooks with subject names is a must. This way you’ll be able to grab your notebooks in the morning and leave without accidentally packing the wrong book. Labeling your supplies is also convenient, this way you’ll never lose your items!

If possible, gather all your textbooks that you’ll need for the semester and skim through them before the first day of classes. Get ahead of the game and you’ll be prepared for all the first-day questions!

Step Three: Tidy Up Your Workspace
