Organizing Tips & Ideas: 5 Ways to Label Your Stuff At Home

Updated: Nov 1, 2023

You don’t necessarily NEED labels, but they can change your life by keeping organization manageable. Labels can make your life easier by:

  1. Creating a HOME for every single item or category of items that you own.

  2. When you live with multiple people, labels make it easier for everyone to put things back exactly where they belong AND make it quicker to find.

  3. They can create a beautiful aesthetic that can complete your organizational system!

5 favourite ways to label your stuff:

1. Gift tags

You can stick gift tags to containers with tape and write on them with sharpie OR hang them with string/twine! (It usually comes with the pack). Click here for gift tags Amazon link.


2. Chalk marker

This is a great option for flexibility as you can wipe off the label and change it anytime you want. I like to use chalk marker on clear containers where I can write the expiration date. The only thing to be cautious about is keeping wet hands away from the label to prevent it from wiping off easily. Click here for chalk marker Amazon link.

You can also use chalk marker on black gift tags (like we did in the photo below) to make them visually pop!


3. Sticker labels

You can buy these online or in stores and sometimes they come WITH the product you're buying, like with these spice jars below. OR...

You can customize your own like what we’ve done here with Avery Labels and a Canva template! Click here for Avery labels Amazon link.


4. Label maker

Here, we've used the client's mechanical embosser with black tape:

But, I personally prefer my Bluetooth printer (Brother PT-P300BTAD P-Touch Cube) because you can customize the font and size:


5. Label clips

These are great for bins or baskets that don't have handles. You can write directly on them with chalk marker OR stick a custom label on them like we did below:
