Sometimes it is difficult to know how to pack your school bag before going to school. With a little patience, a teenager will be able to decide what to pack to have a hassle-free day.


Part 1 of 3: Take the essentials

Pack a School Bag (Teen Girls) Step 1

Step 1. Be methodical

Start by placing your books in your bag to avoid crushing small items. If it's back to school day, bring a notebook. To keep your bag from getting too heavy, only pack the books you need that day (you can always leave a few in your locker).

Put your books in the order you need them throughout the day. To make sure you don't forget any, double-check at least twice that you have picked up all the necessary books

Step 2. Place your pencil case in your bag

Don't just carry a pen in your pocket. Be organized and pack all the tools you might need:

  • pencils and pens for writing

Part 3 of 3: Thinking About Personal Affairs

Step 1. Don't forget your personal items

If you have room in your bag, consider the following personal items:

  • your keys,
  • your mobile phone (if you have the right),
  • your iPod or MP3 player and headphones (if you have the right),
  • chewing gum or mints (if you have the right),
  • a small umbrella (in case of rain),
  • your glasses,
  • your phone charger,
  • your lunch or the money for lunch,
  • anything else you might need during the day.


  • Regularly clean your bag and throw away what you no longer need.
  • Make sure your bag is ready the night before, so you don't have to rush in the morning.
  • Use a bag that has enough pockets and compartments to hold all of your stuff.
  • Place all your important papers in a pocket so they won't get damaged.
  • Make sure your phone is fully charged when you leave for school, in case of an emergency (remember to take your charger if, for example, you are going to a friend's house after school, so you don't run out battery).
  • Do not pack anything that you will not need. Only pack useful items in your bag, so that the weight is not too heavy.
  • If you don't wear jeans and don't have a pocket (for example, if you wear a skirt), keep your phone or mp3 player in a small, inconspicuous pocket in your bag. Roll up your chargers and headphones tightly to save space.
  • Remember to keep small items such as your phone, hand sanitizer, or chewing gum in your pockets, so they can be easily accessed.
  • Make sure you are allowed to bring your phone or other electronic device to school.
  • Arrange your books correctly in your bag.
  • If you have a sports locker, leave your sports stuff there. If you have a locker to put your books in, go there between classes and grab the books you need as you go. If you don't have a personal record, you may be able to share a friend's.
  • If your bag gets too heavy, grab a few books in your hand.
  • If you are a believer, consider bringing a small religious book, which can help you refocus when you need to.


  • Keep your personal items, such as tampons and sanitary napkins, in a small pocket inside your bag so that no one can see them if your bag is left open.
  • Always keep your bag closed.
  • Never let anyone rummage through your bag, except maybe your family members or very close friends.
  • Make sure your parents allow you to take valuables to school.
  • If you're not allowed to take your phone or chewing gum to school, don't risk bending this rule.
