It's very important to be organized in school, in fact i think its the most important part. A great way to keep you biders organized is to use dividers. This is useful when lets say you need to find a handout you chemistry teacher gave out last week. While other people are flipping through pages of notes and homework, all you have to do is find the little tab that says "handouts" and BOOM!!! there it is. Here's an easy, and quick way to make you notebooks a heck of a lot more organized.

This step is pretty simple just use your hole punch to put three holes in your divider paper. Make sure you space the holes correctly up against the guide on the hole punch.

Step 3: Make your label

Go ahead and think of how you want to organize you folder. For me i wanted to make a notes sections. So i took my flash card and wrote "NOTES" on about an 1 1/4" length place, that way it will fit inside the tape and not stick out on the edges. Once you've written your label, go ahead and cute it out.

Step 5: Insert divider in folder

It looks, and works GREAT!!!
