    The next one is probably equipped with a little hook to hold your lunchbox, and pockets for things. Use these for Pencils, your calculator, pens, highlighters, markers, scissors, glue, and whiteout.

    The last one is probably rather small. Use it to carry your bike lock if you have one, or small, useful things like a hand mirror, Chapstick, cell phone, iPod, etc.

Tips

  • If you have a drink pocket (or two) use them for water bottles and that ever-helpful last period snack.

Warnings

  • Make sure you can carry the bag easily. Heavy bags can do permanent damage to your spine, and it is hard to ride a bike or walk with heavy ones.

Things You'll Need

  • Backpack
  • School supplies
  • Another bag.
