If you want to make your own labels, then you've come to the right place!

One of my top tips on getting organized is being able to find things quickly, and that's where labels come in. How can you and/or your family members locate things if they are not labeled?

Below I explain why you should use labels on everything as well as some great ways to create labels yourself (and product suggestions!). Enjoy!





Check out my latest book and bust through that procrastination! Available as a paperback and an ebook on Kindle but NO KINDLE NECESSARY. Enjoy!


3 Great Reasons To Make Your Own Labels &
Use Them Everywhere

1. Locate items quickly.

If it's not labeled (and not in a clear container), chances are you are not going to find it easily. Don't rely on your brain to remember later that you put something in an unlabeled spot. Instead, take a few seconds to create a label and stick it on. You'll be happy that you did!


2. Put things away easily.

A lot of times, something will not get put away because it's unclear where the item actually "lives." Create homes for everything and label accordingly.

For example, let's say you create a home for extra light bulbs which is a clear, lidded bin in the garage labeled "LIGHT BULBS." The next time you need to put away an extra light bulb, you'll know exactly where it goes, how little time and effort it requires and therefore be more likely to do it.


3. Teach family members organized living habits.

If everything is labeled in your home, then your kids (and spouse) should be able to find and put away things without questions or excuses. This contributes to a neat abode in which everyone partakes.

This is my husband's box of office supplies that lives on my desk. Every time he needs something, he knows exactly where to get it.


This also instills organized living habits in your family members that will only have good repercussions later. Just imagine that your husband takes this organizing principle to work or your kids apply it to school...lovely!


4 Different Ways To Make Your Own Labels


1. Use A Label Maker

My label maker brand of choice is Brother. This is the label maker I currently have and love it! Using a label maker is an easy, inexpensive, quick way to label anything and everything.

2. Write Them Yourself

Just like I did in the photos above, you can easily and creatively write your own labels. If the product comes with a label holder and a small piece of paper (like the boxes did in my photos above), then simply write on that and voila! If not, consider using self-adhesive labels or a product like Stash Mob (refillable reusable labeling system).


3. Get Fancy Using Your Computer

If you want to put a little more time and effort into your labeling, then there are very easy ways to design your own labels using computer programs like Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Word. The IHeartOrganizing blog has some fantastic posts detailing exactly how to make your own labels this way. Check it out!

If you want to get even fancier, you can purchase a computer program created specifically for making custom labels like Label Factory Deluxe.

4. Utilize Online Label Printing Services
There are online label printing websites dedicated to helping you create custom made labels - make your own wine labels, visual labels, custom food labels, anything!
