Using Printable Labels to Get Your Home in Order

We all want to be better at organizing. Some people have the knack and some people don’t. With so much to do every day, it’s easy to just throw things in a pile and worry about it later. However, that pile most likely becomes too high, leaving you with a headache of sorting that will take you longer than you are willing to spend the time. Don’t get overwhelmed. Printable labels can save the organizing day!

Are you really ready to organize? You will need to set aside some time to get yourself prepared for the task ahead. Whether you want to get your home in order on a rainy Sunday afternoon or want to start right after you read this article, you have to be mentally prepared. Pick one place at a time. If you are doing a complete overhaul, it may take several days to get it done from start to finish. Don’t overwhelm yourself and start out small. For instance, you probably have a ton of items stored under your bathroom sink. From hair accessories to styling tools, they are probably in a pile that you have a hard time getting to. Once you sort through everything and are ready to use your printable labels, here are a few tips on how to use them to get your home in order.

Choose your label size
The first thing you want to do is decide where you are putting your crack and peel labels. If they are going on storage bins, you may need larger labels so they will stand out and you can see them better. If they are going on the outside of a drawer or a canister, you may need a smaller label. If you have a large bin of Christmas decorations, your larger label can even be printed with short descriptions of the contents such as “tinsel, garland and lights” and your other bin may have, “figurines, bulbs, and ornaments.” With so many different label sizes available, you can choose any size that is suitable.

Choose your color
Printable labels can come in a variety of colors. If you want your labels to be more visible and stand out, why not use orange labels for storing your Halloween decorations or red labels for storing Christmas decorations. Whatever color you choose, it can make it a little bit easier to find the bin you are looking for by color association. Use yellow for Easter and Pink for storing items for a girl and blue for a boy. You can be as color coordinated as you want to be!

Choose your font
Choosing a font is the fun part! Depending on how visible your labels will be throughout your home, you may want to make them a look a little bit fancier. For example, if you are putting labels on kitchen canisters, you can use a more elegant font that shows off your sugar and spice and everything nice!

Ready set label!
Once you start using printable labels to organize, you will be hooked. You will see how easy it is to find what you are looking for, and it will save you time too! Printable labels are very inexpensive, so no need to go out and purchase fancy pre-made labels. You can print whatever you like right from your own home computer!
