Wondering what this messy pile of junk in a closet has to do with this blog? That is my goal for January. The picture is one of my craft “spaces”…many of which seem to be taking over the house. The holidays are over and I am ready to tackle organizing my craft supplies. I would say my tipping point was holiday crafting and not always being able to find things when I want them. For example, I was looking for some gray thread over the holidays but couldn’t find any and figured I must have used it all but I recently found it in the file folder box that you can see in the picture above! I do have a craft area in our basement that I was slowly working on organizing before the holidays but I still have a lot of work to do.
I was chosen to be a Brother P-Touch Labeler Ambassador for the month of January and was sent this labeler to try out. So, as I am going about organizing my craft supplies, I will be using this labeler. Labels will help to keep things organized and any containers that aren’t clear won’t have to be opened to see what is inside them. I like that I can use different fonts, symbols and frames on the labels. I received white tape with black print but I like that I can purchase additional colors if I want. The tape is laminated and they are peel and stick labels. I just need to choose my font, type in what I want the label to say and hit print. There is even a cutter in the upper right corner so I won’t need my scissors!
I’ve come across so many great ideas for organizing and have even started a Pinterest board to gather the ideas but here are a few:
There are other areas of our house that I would like to organize as well like the bathroom cabinets, our computer desk and the kitchen cabinets. I think my husband will like the labeler for out in the garage and my kids will like using it for things in their bedrooms. But I need to concentrate on one area of the house at a time. I will try to post about how the craft area organization is going every so often and if I come up with any great ideas I will be sure to share!
What are you organizing this month?
I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Brother P-Touch and received a product sample to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
