Kim Dao’s Back to School Hacks

Australian YouTuber Kim Dao recently released a video in which she discusses dozens of useful hacks to help students get more out of school this year. Some of us aren’t as organized as we should be, and a lot of these ideas can make a big difference when it comes to getting things done. Here are a few of the tips she shared with her fans.



Hair Ties

Before hearing about this hack, Kim Dao was always losing her hair ties, better known as hair binders or just rubber bands in the United States. She suggests you store on them on a clip, which you can just open up when you need a hair band.



To-Do List

Most people do this from time to time, but it’s a lot more convenient if you put up a cork board. She recommends using a cork board with sticky notes that you can replace every week.



Color-Coded Notebooks

This is a really great idea. If you use spiral notebooks for your classes, one trick is to color code the top of the bridges so that you can tell which pad is which without having to remove them from your bag.



Google Scholar

Most people start their research for school papers on Google, but the hits you get aren’t always useful. You’ll save a lot of time and energy if you use Google Scholar instead, since your search results will be filtered out for more authoritative sources.
