(StatePoint) School can be a stressful place, from finding a seat at lunch to making new friends, but 
don’t let supplies be one of those stressors. Make life just a bit easier with the right supplies, so students 
have more time to focus on the important things. To help reduce stress, consider the following tips and 

Lighten the LoadStudents are always on the go -- shuttling to and from school, attending rehearsals, practices and other 
extracurricular activities, and moving about from class to class. Managing mobility is crucial toward 
alleviating physical stress. 

Use multifunctional tools that can help them carry less, such as the Five Star Flex Hybrid NoteBinder. 
It acts like a notebook and works like a binder with flexible, durable rings that open and close, allowing 
students to add, remove or re-sort their papers. Carrying less means less to worry about. 

Further lighten the load by carrying only what is needed. Pack backpacks the night before to avoid 
bringing textbooks or binders that won’t be used. Another tip is to look for a backpack that features 
ergonomic straps to help distribute weight evenly and reduce physical stress. A backpack that has this 
feature is the Five Star Expandable Backpack; not only that, it also has expanding compartments offering 
extra room when needed. Other things to look for are pockets to help keep small supplies organized 
and easy to find, and padded sections for holding and protecting technology. 

Stay OrganizedBeing organized can reduce so many headaches. Yet somehow, it’s all too easy to let backpacks, lockers 
and even bedroom floors get messy. Use effective organizational tools to ensure assignments aren’t 
misplaced in the shuffle. For example, the Five Star Storage & Organization Divider features mesh storage 
pockets that are great for smaller school supplies; plus, it can snap into a notebook or be stored in 
a binder for easy organization of important papers. 

Write it Down 
Write down assignments as soon as they are given. Being proactive will make sure there are no surprises. 
A planner is great for accessing information anytime, however you may want to display this 
crucial information on a wall calendar or planner at home as well. 

Remain Balanced 
Beyond selecting smart gear, students can help ensure a successful school year by making room in 
their schedules for activities that help reduce stress, whether that’s listening to music, going for a run 
or spending time with friends. 

Find a few systems that help keep mental and physical stress low, and work hard to keep them in place 
throughout the year.
