Using custom labels to get organized at home

Have you got some extra time while at home during the Covid Pandemic? Or did you set yourself some new stretch goals for 2021?

Getting organized at home, decluttering, and having a general sort out of your stuff can feel good. If you weren’t planning on doing this before, you should try it sometime soon.

We’re here to help you in this process. We’re want to suggest different ways you can use custom labels and stickers to help you get organized at home.

So let’s jump straight to it. Here are a few different ways you can use custom labels to get organized at home.

1. Sort out your pantry

Have you got some jelly at the back of your cupboard that’s years old or some pasta that hasn’t seen the light in 5 years? These can all be removed during this process – if you haven’t used them in the last year, why not get rid! 

To help cut down on lots of packaging, we love refillable jars for your grains & pulses.

There are loads of places you can get them. Then design a tag on Canva and get some biodegradable paper stickers to identify what is in each. Here’s one we created in less than 5 minutes.

2. Get name tags for your children

Kid’s name badges are fantastic. Once you have them, you’ll be labeling everything they own. You can get multi-purpose sticky-backed tags, so clothes, water bottles, etc., don’t get lost at kindergarten.

There’s nothing worse than losing their new sweater on their first day back or ending up with random possessions by the end of the year!

There are some super cool effects you can get to make your child’s name stickers stand out. Take a look at these holographic stickers.

3. Label your shelves

Labeling your shelves is next level organized. Why bother? The reason is so everything gets put back in the right place. All the time!

You don’t want hours of decluttering and organizing to be undone after watching a film on Sunday night and just want to shove the DVD back anywhere. The label gives you (or your partner) a little nudge when you’re tired and ensures it goes in the right place.

The trick with these labels is finding the suitable strength glue. Go for a medium-strength adhesive. It’s not sticky enough to peel paint or varnish from wood but will stay stuck. Also, get a plastic sticker, not paper, so it doesn’t disintegrate when you peel it away. The paper will tear and be painful to remove.

There we have it. Now you know how to use custom labels to get organized at home. If you have any questions, please leave a comment below.
