Creative Organizing: Labels

Organize-LabelsCollage

Labels help to organize your pantry, kids toys and closets. There are many creative label options.

They come in different materials, sizes and shapes. You can make them  yourself or you can find free printables and templates online. Go to Pinterest and search “Organize Labels” and you’ll see many ideas.

Here are a few examples:

  • Self Adhesive Labels – This is an obvious choice and still works for me. I use them on the plastic bins in my kids playroom and for labeling my freezer cooking bags
  • Chalkboard Labels – I’ve seen this made from chalkboard contact paper or painted on jars or wooden tags.
  • Laminate your paper labels. This is a great idea for labeling baskets in a refrigerator or freezer.
