How to Keep Your Locker Organized

Aug 28, 2013

You start every school year with a goal: to keep your locker looking spick and span. But by the end of week one, your locker looks like you let loose a stampede of homework-hungry hippos! It winds up smelling like a trash can thanks to the remains of your month-old sandwiches and last week’s tuna surprise. And the flies hovering nearby add a nice finishing touch.

Well it’s time to get your locker back. No more smelliness. No more clutter. The key to an easy and successful school year is to keep yourself organized. This means keeping your appearance, binder and locker tidy.

Locker Organizers

  • Locker Shelves
  • Mess Magnetic Locker Boxes
  • Hanging Roll-up Locker Organizers
  • Personal Touches

Locker Shelves

Purchase sturdy locker shelves at your local school supply store (or ask the cute guy from woodworking to build you some!). Store your heavy textbooks at the bottom of your locker, and your light books on top.

Mesh Magnetic Locker Boxes

Mesh boxes are perfect for storing all sorts of supplies: pencils and pens, calculators, rulers, erasers, staplers, etc. Whatever school supplies you need to store, there’s a mess box that will hold them. Best of all, they’re magnetic. So you can place them on the door or on the inside wall of your locker.

Hanging Roll-up Locker Organizers

These are the ultimate organizers. You can store everything in this one case: supplies, student planners, make-up, even your gym shoes! And best of all, it’s portable. Just unhook it and go!

Personal Touches

Jazz up your locker with some personal touches: add a mirror, photos of your friends, etc. But don’t overdo it. For locker decor, less it more! The more you store, the easier it is for your locker to fall into disarray once again.

  • Once, back in 7th grade.
  • I'm too cool for that sort of stuff.
  • No, but I stuff other kids in their lockers!
