My Favorite Things (for Organizing): Label Maker

My Favorite Things (for Organizing): Label Maker

In November I am sharing a few of my favorite things with you. I hope they become your favorites too!

I love my label maker. There, I’ve admitted it (that's the first step, right?). My Brother P-Touch label maker makes me happy. I use it to label file folders in the office, flour and sugar canisters in the pantry and containers in my craft closet. I’ve been known to label baggies with camera cords and checkbooks for different accounts. Label makers are relatively cheap and make a big difference in the space where I live. How about you? What is your favorite thing to label? And what is the most unique thing you’ve ever labeled? Once my daughter used my label maker to print “I love you” and she stuck in on my check book. Awww…..

Organizing Fall Fling Day 28: Excuses

Organizing Fall Fling Day 28: Excuses

Fling those excuses. I’m waiting for the right time to reorganize my closet. I can’t do my taxes because I hate doing my taxes. Take the project, break it down into small do-able steps and then schedule those steps on your calendar. Take it one step at a time and get through it! If you need help, ask for it.

Organizing Fall Fling Day 27: DVDs

Organizing Fall Fling Day 27: DVDs

Gather all of your DVDs into one spot. Fling any that you don’t love or that you really don’t want watch again. If you’ve bought the movies recently, you may be eligible for a digital copy that will allow you to get rid of the disk and case, or at least keep them in an out of the way place like a high closet shelf.  Libraries love to get DVDs to add to their collection or to sell in their used book sales. So fling away!
