No guessing that your girl keeps it simple around here. It’s all in the business / blog name. But when I say simple – I mean it! Organizing itself is the act of streamlining, simplifying, de-cluttering…giving you room and space and air to breathe. Getting organized is not about making life complicated, stressful or a burden to keep up with. It’s supposed to bring you freedom and peace.
When I organize for families, the end goal is delivering a functional space that works not only now but for the future. Families grow, evolve, change – and the organization systems need to do the same. I keep systems simple to maintain, realistic for their busy lifestyle and when product is incorporated it has to work for the now…and the long haul. It must be something we can tweak, adjust and move around later. If they are going to invest in organizing solutions, I prefer items that can be edited and re-purposed over time. Useful for more than one small phase of life.
MY FAVORITE LABEL MAKER
When it comes to labeling these projects, I always keep it simple. For all my years in business, I’ve been exclusively using a P-touch label maker on all organizing projects. It’s not that I have the worst handwriting in the world, but there are days my hand isn’t as steady as it could be (ahem…too much coffee that morning)…and most importantly, we want to ensure the labels can easily be updated over time. P-touch TZe tapes come off clean and make updating a snap.
These labels are classic and simple. Timeless. They don’t rub off like a chalk or paint pen do – there is nothing more annoying than seeing a beautifully organized space with smudged labels. Trust me, I’ve seen this a lot in the field.
I love adding the labels to products…
Or adding them directly onto a drawer…
P-touch TZe tapes do not damage your furniture, drawers or shelf fronts. Again, I’ve used this label maker on nearly every project and have revisited / reorganized many spaces for families…I’ve removed / updated countless labels. Love how easy they are to work with!
HOW I ORGANIZE MY LABELING GEAR
I run through an incredible amount of P-touch TZe tape. For years I occasionally found myself on projects where I ran out completely. As a professional, it was embarrassing and frustrating. Earlier this year, I got myself organized and created a caddy system for all of my labeling gear. Remember this beauty?…
Still going strong today! It’s full of batteries for the P-touch, labeling pens and more. But most importantly, all of the tapes…
P-touch has so many beautiful colors. Don’t be fooled by my use of only clear or white tape. P-touch offers all sorts of colors – have a look!…
I’ve been looking for a reason to use the pastel shades – so pretty!
