Having an organized locker is a big component of having a complete, structured routine. However, it can be hard to maintain, especially if you’re the type of student that talks to her friends by her locker and loses track of time, causing you just to throw the books in there. Over time, the books will accumulate in your locker making it hard to exchange them when you're trying to get to class.
Before beginning the process of organizing a locker, something to think about getting is a locker shelf. Locker shelves can make changing books between classes much easier and provide more room.
Once you get all the things you need to put in your locker, sort your supplies into categories. Start off with folders, then move in textbooks, notebooks, and so on. This order can be rearranged, but it’s important to try and keep all similar supplies together for easier access.
Another good method is to keep all supplies used for one subject together. For example: math folders, textbook, and notebook would all be placed next to each other in the locker.
Don’t forget to decorate it as well! Decorations will make your locker more visually appealing. Some extra tips are putting some pictures of family and friends and a white board for reminders.
