Winter’s almost over, which means it’s just about time to put your winter hobbies on hiatus. Storing skis, snowboards, sleds and all of the rest of your winter stuff can be tricky, but we have the perfect solution. Use lockers to store all of your winter gear!
We love showing creative ways people use lockers. They can be used in so many other ways than just lining the hallways in a school or holding athletic gear in a gym! When you need a unique gift for a special occasion, lockers might be just the thing you’re looking for.
Welcome, 2018! A brand new year means fresh starts, resolutions, and of course a vibrant new Color of the Year from Pantone. Ultra Violet was announced as this year’s signature color in December 2017. We think it’s such a fun and bold shade to incorporate into your home décor–and what better way than with lockers!
One of our favorite things to do is share creative ways to use lockers. Contrary to what you might think, they aren’t only for schools or gym locker rooms. That’s part of what makes lockers such a fabulous storage solution! They are extremely versatile and come in so many different styles and configurations that you can use them in practically any room in your home!
Outdoor storage solutions can pose a bit of a problem. You need something that provides plenty of storage space but that is also durable enough to stand up to the elements, whether it’s raining, snowing or just unbearably hot. 😉 We have lockers that are able to handle all of those requirements—and look pretty good while they’re at it. Keep reading for five ways you can use lockers outside (and which type we recommend in each setting!).
There are just a few weeks left until Mother’s Day…stumped on what to get your mom, mother-in-law or the mother of your children this year?

“I’m really excited to host a show that starts today, instead of tomorrow”. -Jimmy Fallon
Sometimes you get called for a school in need of some new lockers, and other times you get a call for school lockers for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. And they need them—like yesterday. Selling lockers to the public has its perks, but when we get to work on exciting jobs like this, with one of the coolest, most down-to-earth comedians in the business, it truly pays off. If you don’t know Jimmy Fallon, you are missing out on one of the most talented, unique comedians around who has his own highly popular late-night show on NBC (formerly The Jay Leno Show) as well as numerous other comedic achievements under his belt.
Stolen Spirits inspired us right away with their contagiously cool branding and fresh approach to the art of rum-making. If you’ve never heard of them, you should first know that they are currently the only company in the world that sells “smoked rum.” The inventive New Zealand-born label came to life when two business partners with a common passion for high-quality rum, and a desire to escape the corporate world, shook up the liquor industry with their wild success. The humble beginnings of this grassroots company first started operations in an Auckland apartment in 2010. Today, their award-winning rum has developed an international following of devoted drinkers and bartenders across New Zealand, Australia and the U.S. The company has also raked in various international awards and recently sold a controlling interest to a U.S.-based company for $21 million NZ.
“Hunger is the world’s biggest solvable problem.” – World Food Programme
At SchoolLockers.com, we love to hear about our lockers being used for important reasons–but sometimes the true value of storage escapes us because we don’t always hear about the meaningful service they provide. One of our most valued projects involved finding lockers for a local, non-profit Christian organization called Feed My Starving Children (FMSC). This amazing organization partners with another organization called Kids Feeding Kids, and their joint efforts have provided as many as 161,737,104 meals to 50 countries worldwide…can you say kudos?! Not only does FMSC provide numerous meals to impoverished communities, they’ve also helped implement a variety of sustainability programs to provide resources for clean water, agriculture, health care, education, spiritual development and more.
