Benefits of Being Organized

Being organized in your environment can help make you a healthier and happier person!

  1. Save time by not spending time looking for things, i.e. your rubric for a project.
  2. Save money by not buying items you already have, i.e. notebooks, index cards, highlighters
  3. Instill confidence by knowing where things are supposed to be, and you can hand in homework when it is due
  4. Reduce stress related to lost items, i.e. "Not Handed In" assignments (NHIs) or looking for your study guide the night before a quiz
  5. Manage many activities and deadlines more efficiently
  6. Gain valuable storage space within your existing confines, i.e. room, locker, backpack, and binder
  7. Gain more energy and peace because you are eliminating unnecessary tasks and stress, i.e. texting a friend for your study guide, repeating an assignment because you lost it, etc.
  8. Have more time to do things you really want to do...staying on top of your assignments means you will enjoy your leisure time so much more!
  9. Have a more attractive appearance, i.e. an organized binder makes students look and feel like "Professionals in Training"
  10. Cleanliness and order are not matters of instinct; they are matters of education, cultivating good habits and having specific times to have "check points"
