Taming Your Locker
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     We've all seen it happen. You're walking down the hall at school. Someone opens his locker and all his stuff falls out. Don't laugh- you could be next! Have you organized your locker lately? Have you ever organized your locker?
 
2     If you have trouble shutting your locker door, you know you are in trouble. You've got too much stuff. Do you really need it all? There's only one way to go about taming your locker- empty it all out. You should probably do this after school so that there is no traffic in the hall. Make sure you get permission to stay and do this important task.
 
3     Once you empty everything out of your locker, you need to start to organize it. First, separate everything that doesn't have anything to do with school. You know- things like jewelry, lunch from last week, or your skateboard. Take home anything that is worth keeping, along with your gym clothes that haven't been washed in over a month.
