Tagging Storage

Clearly marking items that you have stored can save you tons of searching and sorting later on!

1. Storage drawers are a great way to store smaller items, but even the clear types are hard to see through.Take one of each item and tape it to the outside of the drawers, this way you can see at a glance what’s in each little bin. For example, if you're storing picture hangers in various sizes, tape one of each to the outside of the drawers.

2. For closed storage like plastic totes, make labels to mark the contents of the boxes, be specific so that you know exactly what’s in each box.

3. If you’re storing items in the open, say in baskets or bins on open shelving and don’t like the look of the little labels, take a digital picture of the items and print it out, mount it on card stock to label each basket. You could also mount printed versions of the labels in different fonts that might look a little nicer than plain labels.   

4. Frame signs in some lightweight frames and mount them to the fronts of your baskets or bins.

Just a few simple ideas to make sure that all of your organizational efforts don’t go to waste! I’m Mrs. FIXIT and it’s just that simple!
