LABEL IT!

Prepare yourself for another post in our Crafty Chaos series....

You are trying to find a certain something, but you can't remember where you put it. Is it in the Sterilite box on the top shelf? Or maybe in the basket below it? Or in any of the other dozen containers you have? You just don't know! So, you take twenty minutes going through every container you own until you FINALLY find it! 



Well, you will never have to waste twenty minutes trying to hunt down a certain something again! Just slap a label on all of those containers, so you know exactly what is in each one, just by looking at them! That's right--now you do not have to remember exactly WHAT GOES WHERE, because the label will remember it for you! And, don't fret, you do not even need a fancy label maker to come up with some cute and helpful labels!



You just need some paper, some letter stickers (or maybe a Sharpie if you'd rather write on your label), and some stamping ink (just to jazz up the cuteness a bit more)! And since you probably already have leftover materials from past projects, these labels are FREE! It's simple, fun to put together, and it will save you so much time and stress in the future! And because it looks nice, you will be extra motivated to keep everything organized! 



 We used a Cricut machine to cut ovals out of plain white printer paper (about 3.5 inches wide) and "shadow block-out" tags out of patterned paper. We used different letter stickers to actually label it, added a little color by inking up the edges of the labels, and then used paper clips or ribbon to attach the label to baskets or boxes. 


How precious are those labels?! They are awesome, right? It is a great way to help you STAY ORGANIZED!



Feel free to share any of your organization tips in a comment below, and have a FABULOUS day!
