    Find a small, portable bag. You will need a bag that you can use to carry around all your supplies. Just make sure that it is a small bag that you can carry around to all your classes but big enough to fit all the things you will put in. A good choice is a medium size makeup bag, as it is big enough but is small enough to be carried around as a pencil case.

    Carry the bag around with you. That way you will not have to go to your locker, especially since most schools will not allow you to visit lockers between classes. This is why it is ideal you choose a bag that is easy to carry around.

Tips

  • Keeping extras of everything might be a good idea too, as you will be able to assist your friends if they need anything in a time of emergency.
  • If carrying this bag around is a hassle, you might want to consider leaving it in your locker if your school allows you to visit lockers between classes.
  • Carry a trash bag. It can become an impromptu poncho or be used to protect laptops and books from rain between classes.
  • Don't over pack the survival bag.
  • Dry shampoo and hairspray can be a good thing to have with you for any stray hairs or if you forgot/didn't have time to shower. Also, be sure to take a few bobbles and hair grips in case you have a surprise test.
  • A little wallet containing emergency money and a bus card would be useful for all of the emergencies where you are staying late after school and your parents can not pick you up.

Warnings

  • Pack a spare pair of panties in case of period leaks.
  • Many schools do not allow painkillers in lockers. If you really need some, keep some at the nurse's office or get some from her/him
