I find that I do not have enough time to do my school homework. Self-improvement issues aside, one way is to minimise wastage of time, one aspect of it comes from transport which takes up 2h back and forth in a day.

I have been doing written assignments on this kind of clipboard currently(back view)

this which at the start only holds a pencil and eraser. However after some time I realised I need more stationeries like highlighter of different colours, pens of different colours to annotate notes, or even an extension to put a phone so that I can do some handwritten notes while watching a webcast. Most of the time I would be standing due to peak hour traffic and lack of seats.

I have considered things like this but I don't really know if they can solve my problem, worth my time finding one due to lack of availability and worth my money(costs $37 here)

enter image description here

It seems like a substitute for a bag directly for the clipboard, but seems too bulky(equivalent to the size of 2 A4 sheets side by side) and only suitable only when there's a surface to rest the entire structure on, like a table. In the standing position I definitely need a left hand to support it, and a bigger file holder like this will only make the tasks harder.

Can anyone think of a cost effective solution to my problem?

You probably need a clipboard with storage. An example on Amazon. If that's not feasible, you can use a pouch to hold different stationery items and carry along your clipboard.


All the things you mentioned you want to do, you can use your phone to do them (since you have one). It's just a matter of finding the suitable applications. Later you can print your work out if you need to.

  • I think if the work is something like doing math sums, it's a bit hard to do it on phone with a lack of support for math symbols. Written assignments are not limited to essays only. Sep 28, 2018 at 9:37
