Whether you’re celebrating a new job, new house or new member of your family, fresh starts and major life events herald a time to rejoice. While you’re feeling good about a positive change in your life, it’s also a great time to get organized so you can focus on what’s to come instead of worrying about where to find this or where to put that.
A large-scale reorganization of your home, office or life can seem like a tall order, but if you do it right, it can save you a lot of trouble down the line. And whether you’re moving or doing some rearranging, it makes sense to take the opportunity to pre-organize to ensure a smooth transition.
One of the biggest organizing mistakes you can make is putting things away only to forget where you put them the next time you need them. Labeling as you go can help avoid future stress and messes that could lead you to reorganize everything all over again.
When you have all kinds of boxes, drawers and other items to label, a label maker can be a huge help. Rather than having to hand-label everything, consider an automated label maker like the Brother P-touch PT-D200 that features a full keyboard and four one-touch buttons so you can easily change fonts and add symbols and frames. The machine also allows you to store up to 30 “favorite” labels and features numerous designs and -patterns for customization. In addition, Brother P-touch labels are durable and will last over time.
Here are a few labeling and organizing tips that will help you keep everything in order and avoid headaches down the line:
