My 10 Favorite Organizing Products for Students

I get a bit giddy around organizational products. I’m a nerd, I know. 🤓

I’m excited about their potential. I know that this is the way to get things under control. Not only does my life go smoother when I’m organized, but I have less anxiety. It helps that organization can also look good.

Being organized requires a few items to help with the process. I tend to be a minimalist, but I still have stuff for school and work. And I need somewhere to put that stuff. That’s where my fav organizing products come in.

Remember, that just buying organizational products won’t get you organized. You have to follow through. Go through the items you want to organize, throw out what you don’t use or want, and categorize what’s left. THEN place your items in their pretty new containers.

As a student, there are a few ways that you need to be organized. You need to manage your time, manage your supplies, and take care of your study space.  Below are some of my favorite organizing items to help you with all of those tasks!

Time Management


student planner

This recommendation cannot come as a surprise. Using a planner (especially the Academic Planner from Order Out of Chaos) will help you not only track assignments, but control your own time. Check out that room to schedule at the bottom of the page!

I recommend the larger size of middle and high school students and the smaller size for college students and adults. I use the smaller size myself!

Wall Calendar

I cannot tell you how much my giant wall calendar got me through college. It took some time to set up, but it was the main place I saw all my commitments and tasks collide. If you’re not into a paper planner, invest in one of these!

Visual Timer

It’s hard to understand time moving if you can’t see it. That’s why a visual timer is a gamechanger. This one doesn’t make any noise, so no need to worry about that annoying ticking sound.

School Supplies

Homework Caddy

If you don’t have a dedicated study space, create a homework caddy and carry it around with you. It needs to be small enough to carry easily, but large enough to hold your supplies. Think – paper, pens, pencils, markers, scissors, calculator, etc.

This caddy is lightweight and clear, so you can always easily see what’s inside of it.

Big Binder

If you’re carrying around 15 binders, you have 14 too many. It’s time to consolidate them all into a single binder. No more missing papers or showing up with the wrong notebook!

This is my favorite binder because it’s made to last! Buy it once and you’ll have it all year long.

Bins for notebooks

Whether you have a set study space or not, you need to contain your textbooks and notebooks. These plastic bins make it easy to find the book you’re looking for and keeps them contained.

Your Study Space

Desk Shelving

For those with some desk space to spare, consider a small shelving unit. Use the vertical space in your room! I immediately see putting textbooks, notebooks, or your planner here.

Desk Organizer

Even if you have a ton of drawers, you still want to keep the items you use the most to be accessible. So, keep your pens, pencils, sticky notes, etc in a desk organizer on the top of your desk.

Drawer bins

Those drawers in your desk are gold! But don’t just let your supplies roll around all over. Categorize them and then contain them in these plastic drawer organizers. Again, I love clear drawers because it’s easier to find all your things!

Cord Management

Listen, all those cords can be confusing and annoying. Who’s ever searched for the correct charging cord amongst the 20 under your desk? Try this cable organizer to keep them all in order and easily accessible.

These products should help you get organized (and stay organized) in all aspects of your life as a student. Remember, getting organized is a process – it doesn’t just magically happen!
