Tip 1: Start with a Clean Locker
There is a good chance that a school’s locker is filthy, but a student can bring a nontoxic spray cleaner to school. By using paper towels and the cleanser, it is possible to sanitize a locker on the inside and outside. With a clean locker, a student won’t need to worry about getting her notebooks, art supplies and other things dirty while the things are stored each day.
Tip 2: Containers for Organizing
Look for inexpensive plastic containers such as baskets, magazine holders or plastic boxes to store your different school supplies. You can find specialized pegboards and organizers that have magnets to attach the items to the inside of the locker’s door. Store the things that you need daily toward the front of the locker to make finding the items faster between classes.
Tip 3: Keep It Neat
Don’t let your locker get too messy because it will make it difficult to find the things that you need. Take time to put things into the correct locations at least once a week, and also, keep a trash bag in your locker to throw away unneeded items. If you spill food or beverages in your locker, then clean it immediately to avoid having a bigger mess later.
