I would say that you should go with one binder , that way you will be able to homework for other classes, and having two binder can get confusing. You might accidentally forget to switch binders one day and then you have none of your stuff for the day. It is best to just keep everything with you. I would only do this if you are aloud to carry a backpack around, if you have to carry books in your hand, I would suggest going with two binders and one for 3rd period that way you will not have to carry so much around.
A color coordination system is the best. I know you said that the folder system isn't the best idea for you but the folder system that I use is more of a mini binder system.If I were you I would get a folder for every class, make sure that the folder has prongs though, that way you can put all the notes the teachers give you into the folders in proper order and you will not have loose papers just floating around. Also make sure that the folders and plastic that way they do not rip after a week. I would suggest getting a three hole punch, but make sure it is a three hole punch that fits into your binder, they are fantastic. For classes that you need to take notes in get a notebook that matches the folder color, that way you automatically know, oh a yellow note book- english! I use this system and all of the notes that I type I aways print them in the same color as the folder too. For math, I made sure that my protractor and Calculator are the same color as my folder. For these thing I put them inside one of the pencil cases that have a three hole punch and then I put them inside the correct order. This system is simple and fast. I would also suggest caring a pencil case with you, that is just filled with tons of pens and pencils erasers ecctra.
Hope this helps, good luck.
