“A place for everything and everything in its place”
Chances are you aren’t the only one living your space. Husbands (or wives!) and kids can make keeping a space organized a real challenge. The simple fact is, if they aren’t the one who organized the space in the first place they are a lot less likely to have a heavy investment in keeping it that way. That’s why I love using labels. You know where you want things but those who live with you don’t always know and a label gives clear direction on where something should be placed. Not only that, but it reminds everyone that everything has a place where it belongs.
I start in the kid’s rooms. If your kids are just learning to read, it can be a real blast for them to get to read everything in their room. It also supports the idea of staying organized early on and not only that but it makes it easy for them.
Check out the video below for ideas one what labels to use. I prefer the label maker myself as I appreciate the clean look once every label is in placed, but it can be tedious to do and a pain to change as you go.
