Lockers are one of the most identifiable features of middle and high school. They are the meeting place to hang with friends, face a bully, or ask out your crush, and of course, they store all of your school supplies and gear for clubs. You’ll spend a lot of time at your locker, so why not take a little time to make it as efficient a space as possible? You can start with some of these pretty cool items that will help you keep your (or your kid's!) locker organized.
Tension-Based Single Shelf
On one hand, a small locker may not leave much room for clutter, but on the other, you may find yourself looking for a way to maximize the space. This adjustable shelf expands to 15 inches and divides your locker into two areas, giving you twice the room to store textbooks, lunchboxes, and pencil pouches.
This slim and tall shelf is perfect for holding everything from your lunch to all your binders. It can support 50 pounds of weight, and each shelf can be dedicated to materials for a certain class or day.
Loose assignments, permission slips, scraps of notes—all of these random items can easily get lost in the locker-void. These magnetic clips will keep all of those single sheets of paper in one place until you can properly sort or discard them.
If you're involved in any after school activities, it’s likely you'll end up carrying a separate bag for it. Instead of hauling it around all day, install these hooks, which will keep the extra supplies elevated and accessible.
Let’s be honest: even the best laid plans can fall to the wayside. If storage containers just become a way to put everything in smaller, still unorganized, piles, then that’s okay. These mesh graphite gray bins will hold all the odds-and-ends from the school day, and you’ll still be able to locate what you need.
In this set you get two magnetic plates that you can attach the bins to for a cohesive look, or you can place everything on the walls of your locker separately. The bins are three different shapes—wide, tall, squat—so there’s a place for everything, from scissors and pens to makeup and snacks.
You get 2-in-1 organizational help from this freestanding drawer with a sturdy shelf. Set it at the bottom of your locker and use the 3 interior compartments for spare school supplies, the space in the middle for books, and the shelf portion for your lunch box.
Technically, this is for your desktop, but if it fits, it can work—and you would want this to work, since it includes wide filing slots, a tray, and a sliding drawer. If you pair it with another shelf and hooks, you'll have plenty of options to work with to keep your locker tidy.
Dividing your locker allows you to group materials for different classes, so you know exactly where to look, and this shelf comes with a whiteboard and magnets to post helpful reminders. The shelf is stackable, so those of you fortunate enough to have tall, spacious lockers can grab a couple to create sections.
Go all out with a blush pink organizer set, complete with a shelf, mirror, magnetic cup, whiteboard, dry erase marker, and magnets. It is a cute option for those who appreciate aesthetic, and the set also comes in gray and black.
