well first of all, i know im such a procrastinator for doing this all last minute, cuz i start school in less than a week Undecided, but im soooo anxious to go. sooo in my school there are three floors, my locker is on the top floor, and 5 out of 7 of my classes are either on the main floor or the bottom. so i barely have time to run up to my locker and grab my notebook/binder for whatever class i have next. so i want my load to be light as possible, because i will be carrying my stuff around with me. i dont carry around a backpack, because it just seems super-geeky to do (and also whenever i wear a mini skirt, it tends to lift it up and show off my butt  Tongue).

i have all honors classes this year, therefore i get tonsss of homework and notes. so i need a way to carry all my notes/homework for that particular class and others if i cant go to my locker. i want to get a spiral notebook cuz a binder is quite large for my small figure, and also quite on the heavy side, but the thing is--- i want to be able to take notes out and put back in....

i feel bad that this post is soo long.. but i had this problem last year and it really sucked.
i appreciate GREATLY any suggestions and ideas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it would REALLY make my school time more enjoyable and easier!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Does someone have a copier that you could use to make copies of your books by chapter or unit, one year I managed to get four pages of a smaller textbook on one sheet of paper using 2 sided function and then I only had to carry a chapter at a time rather than lug the entire book around.

I love a clip borad. Notetote has a great one out this year ( i got mine at Staples) Why don't u use that to take notes and then transfer it into a binder filled with all the notes from one class. If u can copy ur book pages and have them ready for each class then you could be set.
Good Luck in School this year!

im going to have a problem with books this year too.tonnes of books and a far away locker. What im going to do i use a dou-tang for each class, and when we are finished each unit, you can use a new dou-tang <i've done this before and it actually helps with studying>
hope this helps

My solution to this (considering my HS was a sprawling campus- and Honors labs were always WAAYYYY down on the opposite corners of the campus) was to use manilla folders to hold the day's required items for each class- and keep a binder at the locker with those clear-page protector pockets...  I could load up the page protectors with a chapter/unit when I was done with it- and move onto another one...  Kinda a $$$ solution- but it worked wonderfully...
Also- if- and only if you're a super geek--- you can find pdf versions of a lot of text books these days- and load them onto a pda. (Yes, I did that in college- I'm a dork, I know.)  My Journada carried everything for a semester's worth of classes- and I could synch it to my pc at the dorm...
On the clip board side--- can I recommend the aluminum kind that have a "box" on the bottom to hold other loose pages, pens, even a small book?  You can find them at Staples and such- and they're amazingly handy--- and aluminum, so they're light and shiny.

If you are still wanting to do a spiral for your classes, instead have you thought about the pocket folders with brads?  You can get them in the plastic type stuff so they would last longer, and you could put dividers so you could use the same one for all of your classes.  At the end of the day, you could transfer your notes to a binder.

Good luck,
Carmen
