12 Ways to Have the Coolest Locker in the Hallway

Back to school, already? It’s true and so is the need to start thinking locker stuff. Lockers are a HUGE part of going back to school. It’s more than the place to keep books, supplies and lunch. It’s a teen’s space to hang out in between classes, meet before study hall, keep a calendar (test on Tuesday!), touch up their makeup or hang their hat. It’s basically their home at school, and it’s important to them to show their personality and have the coolest locker in the hallway!
