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.

To be brutally honest, this is a question I get asked about all the time... Now being a person who has been into technology for 13 years now - I can see why so many people have gone over to the world of technology now (I mean, we even have Curved 4K TVs now - which look absolutely awesome btw, but that's for me to talk about at another time).  Now it's important to remember that books are still extremely important. Although you can find almost everything on the Internet now - it's still sometimes useful to look in a book (even if that's not very often). So I do still think they have there place, and for people who actually like the authenticity of a physical book and not some thing that is on iCloud or whatever your chosen Online Storage Solution is. With technology moving the way it is these days, it's so much easier to use something like an iPhone, an iPad, or a Laptop (such as a MacBook Pro) to find the information you need. If you was to create a paper book of everything that was available on the Internet - let's put it this way, you'd need a rather large school bag... And rather large muscles!  :devil However, with something like a MacBook Pro (even the 15" Model), it's much easier to carry around, especially as it's much lighter than a lot of books - you can also take notes on it and edit photos and video, and listen to music, and watch films, and use KidzWorld ;) So personally, I'd take my MacBook and iPod Touch 5G (soon to be replaced with a Moto G) around with me all the time, I've had my time of using books. But as I said, other people may have different opinions;3

It's difficult to say because I love TFiOS, I think its a great book and film, but the Divergent series and film also looks good but I've never read/seen them, so I can't really make a refined judgement.
