Hanging Locker Organizer OrangeKeep kids organized at school!  With three sturdy shelves and handy side pockets, this top-rated hanging organizer creates functional space in school lockers.  Adjustable to fit full, half, or narrow lockers, it can hang from a shelf, rod, or hooks – even if the hooks are different heights.  It’s not only perfect for lockers, it also works great to organize closets at home!

  • Made of heavy-duty fabric.
  • Features steel hangers with rigid shelf inserts.
  • Measures 6″ x 9″ x 20″.
  • Currently available in the following color combinations: Orange/Navy (shown), Black/Red, Fuchsia/Black, Blue/Green.

These organizers are great at containing clutter and they’re durable, too.  Read what one of our customers had to say about the Hanging Locker Organizers she bought last year:

“I bought two of these for my boys.  Like all boys they are rough on things!  Not only did [the organizers] last all school year but both of [my boys] asked that I keep them in a safe place over the summer so that they can use them next year. They are still in great shape and are fine to use for another year or two (at least) to come! Kept them very organized and helped reduce the locker clutter!” – Brittany from Allison Park, PA

We recently became affiliated with Caden Lane, a designer collection of baby bedding, big kid bedding, accessories, gifts and decor. (FYI: Through our affiliation with Caden Lane, we may receive a commission if you make a purchase at cadenlane.com through our links.  This will occur at zero cost to you.)  We quickly fell in love with their exclusive bedding designs, and we’ve mixed and matched two of them with a variety of organizational products from our store in the inspiration boards below.  Take a look at our ideas for creating two dream nurseries that function with style:

 Nursery No. 1 – Hot for Dot

Gatlins Blue & Green NurseryOrganizational Products from In Its Place Kids: 

1. Monogram Baby Photo Collage / 2. Circle Wall Hooks / 3. Flight to the Moon Bookends / 4. The Toy Store System by Oeuf / 5. Tin Storage Bin w/ Chalkboard Label / 6. Fabric Cube Storage Bin / 7. TubTrugs

Featured Caden Lane Bedding:

Gatlin’s Green and Blue Baby Bedding – Caden Lane has taken one of their timeless exclusive fabrics and turned it into trendy blue and green baby bedding!  This set has a classic and preppy design that’s perfect for your bouncing baby boy.  And as a bonus – everything is machine washable!  The two-piece set includes a sheet and a skirt that measures 17″ in length.  Coordinating crib bumpers, an extra sheet, a changing pad cover, a crib blanket and a square accent pillow are also available.

Our Design:

In this bright nursery for a baby boy, we’ve incorporated organizational products in green and blue to match the crib skirt.  We’ve also used the Monogram Baby Photo Collage, the Fabric Cube Storage Bin and the Oeuf Toy Store System with Walnut bins to bring out the brown accent color in the bedding and in the coordinating crib blanket and pillow.

NEW_Jack_Bumpers__63456.1411147871.386.513We love the modern dot pattern in the crib sheet and we’ve brought attention to it by using dots as a design theme in our nursery.  We’ve repeated the dot design in the Circle Wall Hooks, the circular shape of the TubTrugs (which can be used for laundry as well as storage for toys and stuffed animals) and the circle detail in the Fabric Cube Storage Bin.  The dot is even repeated in cutouts on the rocket in the Flight to the Moon Bookends – so cute!

 Nursery No. 2 – Peace of the Forest Caden Lane Pink and Gray Nursery

Organizational Products from In Its Place Kids: 

1. Custom Nursery Hamper Cover w/ Stand / 2. Children’s Forest Animals Wall Hooks / 3. Wooden Toy Box Caddy / 4. Custom Magnet Memory Board (Fabric: Premier Prints Zoom Zoom Twill Bella) / 5. Chevron Monogram Baby Photo Collage / 6. Hare on the Run Bookends / 7. Children’s Fawn & Mushroom Wall Hanger

Featured Caden Lane Bedding:

Peyton’s Pink and Gray Damask TuTu Petti Crib Skirt™™ Baby BeddingThe design of the Tutu Petti Crib Skirt™ is exclusive to Caden Lane. The skirt is three-sided with full, soft ruffles that cascade to the floor with a 17″ drop. The two-piece set includes a sheet and skirt.  Crib bumpers, an extra sheet, a changing pad cover and a crib blanket that coordinate with our nursery design are also available.

Our Design:

In this dream nursery for a baby girl, we’ve added organizational accessories in soft pinks and grays to coordinate with the bedding’s peaceful palette.  We’ve also introduced a chevron pattern into our design; you can find it on the Custom Nursery Hamper Cover, the Custom Magnet Memory Board (both of these products are also available in other fabrics) and the Monogram Baby Photo Collage. We love how the chevron pattern “plays nice” with the polka dot pattern on the crib sheet; you can see this winning combination on the nursery hamper cover.

We also have a subtle forest-animals theme at work in our nursery, thanks to the adorable design of the Fawn and Mushroom Wall Hanger, the Forest Animals Wall Hooks and the Hare on the Run Bookends.  To continue with the forest theme, we suggest adding the Tree Bookcase shown below into your design mix.  We think it would be the perfect finishing touch!

We hope our design ideas inspire you to create a special nursery made for the sweetest dreams.  Sleep tight!
