Getting Organized With Labels

I have to confess that I am a little obsessed with organizing and having things in their places. My husband jokes that it is just that I have OCD, but I just like things to look pretty. I could spend hours in The Container Store, grab any magazine that says "organize" on it, and think that a well organized shelf is a work of art. Before our move, I went through my kitchen and pulled out everthing that I did not need and tried to get everything else organized for our new kitchen. I came across a fabulous website that has printable labels called JustSomethingIMade.com and also from Family Fun. Wal-Mart has the best jars and I have to stay away from that aisle or else I will buy more.


Love how these look when I open my cupboard! My husband even loves them too!



As I was organizing, I had these spice jars (that I bought about 8 years ago!) and wanted to make them cute, so I added these labels on them that I printed off my computer. I just used clear packing tape. On move-in day, I immediately spotted this spice rack that the previous owners left behind and was sooo excited because I just finished adding the labels to my spice jars...coincidence...I think not! :)

I also picked up some containers from the Dollar Tree and added some labels the same way. I still have a few more to add, but love the way they turned out!

I do have a delima that I need some advice on. I have a little cubby area that will be our "school paper center" and I have no idea how to organize it. Any tips on organizing kids papers, school supplies, shoes, and such...please leave me a comment! Thanks!!!
