Labels For The Win
Does it feel like you are the ONLY one that knows where ANYTHING is in your home? And the ONLY one that knows where to put things back??? I’m sorry to say there is no quick fix to completely eliminate that problem. BUT labels are a step in the right direction. Labels are an amazing tool for organization. They help everyone in the space know where to find things and where to put things back.
I love labels! You don't need much to start using labels. They can be as simple as some masking tape with a marker. Or it could be slightly more complex; like these custom vinyl labels I created with my cricut joy!
As lovely as these custom labels are, they are not 100% necessary. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE a beautiful space. But having a functional space is WAY more important than having it Pinterest Perfect.
Labels do not always have to be in the form of text. Picture labels are a fantastic organization tool. They are a fast and simple way to see where things belong; especially, if someone using the labels does not read.
Here are some great examples of how to use images to label containers.
My kids can clearly see the items on this shelf are for our dog, Sophie, and not for them.
These toy bin labels are hybrid. Pairing text with a graphic was just what this playroom needed. The family had one child learning to read and one a bit too young, so utilizing images and text worked well.
Even with an organized home, I am still the one everyone comes to for finding things. Maybe that’s just part of being a mom. BUT labels do make it easier for me to explain where something is when they ask. I’ll take whatever help I can get! Thank you, Labels!❤️
