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.

Ive noticed everyone is trying to be "country" or "redneck" all of sudden. I just dont get it i mean im dating a redneck but the difference is hes a real redneck, hes lived in the country and knows how to ride a horse and fish. But alot of people nowadays are trying to say their country or redneck because they listen to bands like "Florida Georgia line" and i just dont understand it, its not a fashion statement its a lifestyle. What are your opinions on it?

My parents are about an 8. I put a lot of care and effort into my schoolwork, so they'd only take away my privileges (phone, internet, DS) if I wasn't trying. But, I give it my all, and behave in general, so they're pretty easy. However, I knew this girl in home and careers class last year who got her phone taken away because her grade point average was 3.4 instead of 3.66.
