Just as you can’t do anything on an empty stomach, you can’t go through the school year with an empty locker.

Having a decorated locker is an incredibly important part of the high school experience. Your locker is sort of your home away from home, after all—and way more than a metal box to store your belongings.

Seeing as you made your way here, we’re guessing your already aware of that fact. Heck, your locker is probably already decked out to the nines at this point.

Now all that’s left to do is share a pic of it on Instagram. Once you’ve found the shot that highlights every little detail of your locker in all its glory, scroll below for the best locker Insta captions around!
