Our desks are a complete wreck right now because I felt compelled to take out all the paperwork in our filing cabinet and re-do our entire file system. Brian has actually been a pretty good sport about it. Well, except for the part when he threw up his hands and said, “WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!?” He really hates paperwork.
I told him that I am nesting and that I need to do this. Still, he was mostly willing to help and of course if I have to tackle this yucky situation it is better to have someone do it with me.
I still have a bit of a ways to go before I am ready to share our new organized filing system and offer my own thoughts and ideas. But for now, I thought I would share my favorite organizing tool ever. My label maker. It makes my heart go pitter-patter to see nice clean labels on things.
It’s a simple label-maker that I bought at Target a couple of years ago. I love it. It makes me want to organize. For years I hemmed and hawed about buying a label-maker because it just seemed so excessive. Like, why do I need this if I have a pen, paper, and tape? But it makes such a difference to me mentally. I like seeing nice writing on things. It just makes my world and home look a little bit more prettier. I have put it to good use on our files, our linen closets, and so on. If I had my way I would probably put a label on Brian (marked “husband”) and Bunny (marked “daughter”). Heck, probably even Boots (marked “cat”).
Whatever helps make cleaning and organizing a little bit easier, right? 🙂
