Today I am taking a little departure from showing you an organized space or room. Instead, I wanted to tell you about the labeling items that are essential to my organization and how I store them. A few months ago, I became frustrated with not being able to find labels that I had printed out. I needed a solution for all of my labeling essentials ASAP. I picked up a plastic caddy from Walmart and naturally labeled it my "Labeling Caddy."
I gathered all of my labeling goodies including, but not limited to, tons of Martha Stewart labels (my favorite!), Brother P-Touch tape refills, double sided tape, velcro, mounting tape, string, tags, chalkboard cards, chalk markers, mini clothespins and fun-tak.
Everything fit perfectly into the caddy and the caddy fits perfectly in the cabinet under my "desk" in our kitchen. I plan to write a post about my kitchen desk area, but I will wait until I have it organized more to my liking.
Also essential to my labeling, are my two Brother P-Touch label machines. I am in love with these gadgets! I bought them both at Staples during label maker sales. In the cabinet they sit next to two small bins with a few other labeling/office supplies.
I often use my laminator for labeling as well. It also has a spot in this cabinet. I keep all of my laminating sheets in a magazine file along with CD/DVD labels, larger Avery labels, return address labels and labels that I have previously printed from the Internet.
For Christmas, my wonderful mother bought me a Silhouette Cameo! Awesome, but what exactly is that, you ask. It is an electronic cutting machine. It can do so much in the way of arts and crafts, paper crafting, custom apparel, vinyl decor, scrapbook layouts and what else, customized labels! Yay! It will be a long while before I use this baby to its full potential, but the first thing I plan to do is whip up some vinyl labels for bins, etc. I am beyond excited!
That about sums up my labeling essentials! I couldn't be completely organized without them!
