Locker Style Tips

Aug 28, 2013

A new year means a new opportunity to show your style and get super organized. A messy locker may be a sign of a creative mind, but it doesn't do much for your image or your work ethic either. Express your creativity with locker accessories instead of with a mess of crumpled papers. Here's how...

Organization

Let's get the organization part out of the way first... Pick up a locker shelf from Target, PBTeen, the Container Store. Amazon.com or Claire's in your favorite color. Put morning books on top, afternoon books on the bottom, or all books on top and lunch and other accessories on the bottom. However you decide to organize it, pick a system and stick with it.

There are some fabulous peel-n-stick or magnetic dry erase boards that feature calendars, mini memos or lots of big blank space to help you keep track of schedules, tests, after school activities or assignments. They come in so many different styles at PBTeen.com and Amazon.com that you'll be sure to find one that expresses your personality, whether you're a sk8r boy, Broadway diva, girlie girl, sports enthusiast, or just about anything else!

Attach a magnetic hook to hang a baseball cap, lunchbox, hairbrush, etc to the back wall. The door is a great place to hang a magnetic shelf to hold extra pens/pencils, notepads, hair accessories and other things you may not want to carry around all day.

Finally, to stay organized, every Friday, clean out your locker and take home all the papers you're finished with to organize them. And take home all opened food, drinks and snacks you have stashed in there, too!

Add Some Style

The organizers you choose are a good start for setting up your style, but with all the extra space, you can express your personality. Magnetic picture frames, a mirror and even a battery powered string of lights or chandelier add just the right personal touch.

well this is kind of a long story but ill try to make it as short as possible. so it all started about 4 years ago. this new boy came to my school. he was super cute and all the girls had a crush on him. at first i did not like him in a crush way but after a while feelings started growing. we started talking and he seemed to like me to. after elementary was done we ended up going to the same middle school.fast forward to this year me and him are in the same class. while i was in 6th grade i found my best friend me and her been bffs since then. she is also in the same class. ever since the begging of this year they grew really close. they are always talking and it seems like she like him and vice versa. every time they are together i feel this overwhelming since of jealousy and anger. like is she better than me or??? the thing that really gets to me is that she knew i liked him. omg i need advice like what should i do :mad
