As a teacher, I'm surprised by how many kids don't know these easy tips. It requires staying a bit organized, but it pays off two ways: 1. Saving your back and 2. Preventing you from looking like a dork with a 50 lb. backpack!
A helpful hint to help a college student keep from getting buried: get a 5 drawer rolling file cabinet. One drawer per subject; easy get at and keeps subjects separated. It's helped my daughter. Before this, all would get thrown onto the bed or a chair. The next time something was needed, she'd be searching frantically for it. Now she just opens the drawer and places it into her bag.

I use decorative tins for small items and baskets for larger things. You can get these at dollar stores or thrift stores and garage sales. In Houston we have Big Lots. I don't know how large a chain it is but they have plastic bins so cheap you will feel you stole them. You can stack the bins thereby saving floor space.
I have learned two very important rules the hard way. Number 1. If you haven't used it in the past year either toss it or give it away. Number 2 Always put things away the minute you finish using it.
