5 Things You Need in Your Locker

Textbooks, Notebooks, a Pencil Case, etc...

These are essentials! Try to keep them organized with a shelf or color coding. It is easy to lose these items, so using organizers is an easy and cute way to keep everything together. The more organized you are, the easier it will be to find something if you are rushing off to a club meeting or a class!


As day students, we don't have a dorm to go to during the day, so we hang out around our lockers or in the lounge. Decorations are totally optional, but it is a great way to have fun with your locker and have your own personal touch at school!


Lights are an amazing investment to make for your locker. The lockers aren’t too dark, but it is fun to have an extra light to decorate your locker with! Personally, I have fairy string lights and a light-up disco ball and they are great to put a smile on my face when I open up my locker in the morning. Target and Walmart have amazing deals for decorations.

Extra Clothes

Before after school sports/activities, you will want to change after a long day of school, and every once and a while you may forget that change of clothes! By having extras in your locker, you don’t have to worry.


Snacks are a great way to remain energized during the day. Make sure to take food home during breaks, but no worries if you leave them in the locker throughout the week. I love having snacks in my locker to grab between classes, after school, and before sports and activities.
