Hey when I went to college my bag was ALWAYS heavy - I commuted and so would have to take everything with me that was suited for the day, including relevant folders for all lessons.
If your bag is too heavy, try scheduling work for free periods that is within the subject that you had that day - that way, you're not carrying an extra folder.
The bottle of water makes a difference as that is going to be quite heavy! Maybe empty it at the end of the day when you're on your way home?
Also, see what textbooks are available in the college, then you could use them there instead of carrying yours from home, as they weigh a lot too.
I would take folders for the day, a pencil case, calculator, relevant books, purse, phone, work uniform for after college etc. (everything you've listed other than the laptop).
Does your college have computers? You wouldn't need to take your laptop in then.
A backpack is always better than a shoulder bag too, as its easier to carry.

1 folder with a few dividers and about 30 pages for the week. I take out the stuff at the end of every week into the main folders I keep at home. Hence my bag is light.

Use this tip and you'll never have a heavy bag

You only really need a pencil case and the books you needed to do homework last night. A water bottle is a fair addition although you can keep that in your locker. You don't really need a laptop or a graphics calculator, a normal calculator will suffice for a level maths.

I take:

- Pencil case (well, I did until someone stole it...)
- Stabilo colour pens (useful for revision/making notes)
- 2 scientific calculators (one always drops to the bottom so easier to have two/someone always forgets theirs)
- Textbooks (I have two for geography which weigh a ton, my politics book isn't exactly light either)
- Folders (usually a maximum of three for any day of the week, but they're pretty full)
- School diary
- Water

Occasionally I'll have my iPad in there (usually if I know my teacher won't be in and I'll have a free lesson), or a book that I'm reading.

Usually have:
- A4 refill pad for paper
- Pencil case
- Organiser/planner thing
- Water bottle
- iPod/phone/keys
- Glasses
But my bag's too small (ordering online, damn it) so I usually take a carrier bag or something with folders (maximum of 2) and my lunch.

I did art, drama, business and media so I didn't really need a massive bag for my A Levels. I had to carry an A1 folder around for art which was bigger than me and I couldn't get it on the bus in my bag I took:

1 pen
Notebook
1 folder with all my papers for each subject (they were mainly practical based)
USB stick
Calculator
Chewing gum
Water
iPod
iPod speaker
Deck of cards

I also messed around a lot and spent my free periods watching YouTube compilations, somehow I made it to uni :P

Pen, pencil, ruler, notepad, textbooks needed for the day, A4 plastic wallet of all the spare worksheets/previous lessons notes I might need taken out of my folder (it's easier to carry around the bits of paper I need rather than the whole folders)
