    I am arranging all my school stuff this week but i dont what to do with my stationery. . Normally, i am always looking for my missing pencil and stuff and waste a lot of time doing that because i have a lot of, a LOT of markers, pens, pencils, erasers, etc. So i want to organise it in such a way that everything is in one place and properly arranged..you know something easily accesible and does not look so shabby? So any idea?

    You could do with like a storage roll or something. You can get them to store makeup brushes and stuff, so I'm sure they do them for stationery.

    I love stationery and always end up with loads of different pens and highlighters. It's silly how much I've got. It always annoys me having to dig around in my pencil case for what I want, so something like this would be ideal

    You're being silly.

    At most you need:
    2 black/blue pens*
    1 black/blue pen**
    1 red pen
    2 pencils
    1 ruler
    1 rubber
    1 sharpener
    1 highlighter***

    *preferred colour
    **the other colour
    ***unless you are 6 years old/extremely camp, then you need to take all the colours of the rainbow

    Make sure your pencil case is fully stocked before leaving your house every morning. Keep a drawer for all your spares.

    This is how my AS year started. 2 weeks later I'd chewed all (yes, even spares) of pens, snapped all my rulers and pencils, and gotten sick of having multicoloured hands from highlighters. Within a month I just brought a black pen and paper and pretended to write notes.

    Throw everything that isn't a pen out of the window, thus all you will ever find (and need) are pens. Problem solved.

I threw away some of them yesterday but still there is a lot! i just dont know what to do! i cant throw away all of them because m gonna use them later.

    All you need is a pen, and occasionally a pencil and ruler.

    All the way through GCSE, A levels and then college, I only ever carried around a biro, clipped to my file.

    Sorry if this sounds mean, but what you need more than anything is to get out more. There is much much more to life than stationery organisation!

    Just put them all in a drawer somewhere apart from a few pens. :confused: You really don't need all of that.

    All of it. TOGETHER.

    It doesn't need to be organised if you're not going to use it regularly. And you won't be.

    Sorry, are you talking about organising stationery for school (i.e. a pencil case) or for home (i.e. a stationery holder)?

    I've already posted the former, so here's the latter:

    Buy two pencil cases: one for your most used items (so that you can find them easier) and one for everything else (so you will have it on you just in case).
