At the end of our upstairs hallway we have a little nook. It is a detail we loved about the house from the beginning.
It has some little nook-y cupboards that we use for storage. Months ago I organized them. I was partly inspired by Young House Love again. They have a great looking linen closet, where they use baskets and boxes to contain their linens and sundries.
Young House Love Linen Closet:
The next step today was to embrace labeling. So I got out the paper cutter, and went to work putting homemade tags on each of our baskets.
I am not.
I have always hesitated to label. I never liked to write on file folders or notebook tabs. It always feels like a big commitment to me.
So I have not labeled around the house. What if in the days ahead I want to change what is in that particular box or bin?
But today these September days I am telling myself, to go ahead, if it feels like it needs a label, label it . . . I can always take it off and/or add a new one!
And now if I ask Andrew to get more baby shampoo for Colton, all I need to do is say that it is in his bin.
Organizational task for today: Label nook bins.
Organizational tip for the day: Go ahead and label, you can always change them out.
