Practice after school. Spanish test on Tuesday. Five-page history paper due tomorrow, and student government meeting on Monday. Sounds something like your hectic back-to-school schedule?

Don't stress out. JSYK talked to Nina Restieri, founder of MyAgenda -- a celeb fave for staying organized -- and we're giving you all the tips you need to stay on top of your busy life this school year.

For starters, make sure your back-to-school shopping list includes a day planner. "The one tip I give everyone, whether they have teens or toddlers, is to write everything down as soon as possible," Nina tells us. "This is especially important for teens because their days are so filled with activities that it can get overwhelming trying to keep track of it all."

If you don't have your planner nearby when you need to jot something important down, text it to yourself so you'll remember to add it later. "If it is all written in your calendar, you will not forget about it -- it's that simple."
Next, keep your locker space free of clutter so you don't leave papers or binders behind that you need to study for a huge test. Nina recommends maximizing your space with this stackable locker shelf and a magnetic locker cup for only $3.99 that you can use to hold pens, pencils, and more.

Lastly, pack your school bag each night before you go to bed. "Packing it in the morning invites chaos and increases the likelihood that something will be forgotten," Nina advises.

The best part of back-to-school is the shopping, so check out these fun supplies.,feedConfig,localizationConfig,entry&id=927300&pid=927299&uts=1285867521
