Label makers are your friend


Label makers may seem like an item for businesses, but I highly recommend them for organizing any home. I laughed when my wife started living the "Getting Things Done" system and bought a label maker, but I'm totally on board now. It's so easy to label files with them, and with the printed labels, everything is really easy to sort and find.
Moreover, they are great for labeling other stuff. I stick labels on dishes I take to potluck dinners. I label boxes in the attic and such. I attach labels to all those gadget cords. Bonus tip - make the label longer than necessary, coil up part of the cord and attach the label to the coiled cord. Sorry about the lousy photo of this concept, but you get the idea.
label makers are your friend, organizing
