Back to school week: Pimp my locker edition

back to school- locker

All week, I’ll be sharing my favorite Back To School gear.  Yesterday, it was all about mornings, and the stuff that might make the difference between harried and calm. Today, it’s about those beloved metal boxes: Lockers. Check back every day this week for more!

I got my first locker in middle school.  I remember feeling like it was my first apartment, and I immediately went to town furnishing and decorating it.  I’m pretty sure there were some pictures of Ricky Schroeder and Duran Duran involved— thankfully there are some cooler options these days, including the always-necessary tech-cessories to make sure you’ve got juice and tunage. (That would be a great name for a rock band, no?)
