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:

1. Pick up a locker shelf from Target, the Container Store. Amazon.com or Claire's in your favorite color.

2. Place 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 skateboarder, drama diva, girlie girl, athletic 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.
