So what do you keep in your work locker?

  1. I was wondering what all anyone keeps in their locker that they might recommend that would be a good idea?

    When I was in the Us working, my locker would not be without:
    a box of tampax
    instant soups in packages
    instant meals in a cup
    peanut butter

    Never knew when you would miss a meal due to a long case and cafeteria was
    only open certain hours, knowing something was there helped quite a bit.
    Also tried to keep some frozen meals in the freezer with my name on it in big letters as an emergency back-up. Most of us, sometimes the freezer looked like someone's home.

    Hope that this helps...........................
