I'm a label kind o' girl

I love labels. Not only do labels help me keep everything in it's proper place, but labels just make me look and feel more organized than I really am!



I found these gorgeous personalized labels for the kitchen -- for only $2.00 at Organize.com ! I know I have old glass jars in my basement -- I think it's time they made an appearance in my kitchen! There's a huge selection of the names you can have put on these labels -- for example: candy, cereal, coffee, tea, pasta, rice, flour and more! You can choose the color and the font, then select from their large selection of words.

I never thought of recycling old bottles for the bathroom! But take a look at these ideas! Labels you can choose include: shampoo, conditioner, soap, bubblebath, lotion, and more. Ooooo... can't you just see a line of old blue bottles with cork stoppers in a row in your bathroom??


Look at these labels for photo albums and scrapbooks! (Of course, first I'd have to put all my photos into albums...!)


Those photo albums almost don't need photos -- they just look so good sitting there on your bookcase! Who cares what's actually inside them -- people will think you're SO organized!

Is it just me or are the labels in those photos Photoshopped in? I don't think there are actually labels on the products in the real pictures!

Oh, what I would give to have all of my photos in neatly labeled albums...

Hi, Joan. I also like to use labels....but I even make them myself. I know you are pc savvy...I buy the packages of labels - generic brand at Walmart or Staples, you can get them clear or white and many sizes. I use the different softwares, format my text and print! I use address size ones to print my own return address labels. I also print name, address, email labels when I go to quilt, craft, and vendor shows to put on the door prize of drawing entry stubs. Not sure in supplies and ink if it presents cost savings or not, but you have many more options of words, etc.

You already know I'm a labeling fiend - I've posted photos of my pantry with all the labeled Lock-n-Lock containers, and professed my love for my Dymo label maker! And while the Dymo is great, the labels aren't very large - a critical thing for we old-and-blind folks! I love these. Now, you've got me thinking.......

Joan, was that $2.00 per label? With all the things I need to label around here, that would get pretty expensive! Another less expensive alternative, is to make your own labels with a scrapbooking machine (like a Cricut) or you can get an entire sheet of alphabet letters for around $1-$2 at a scrapbooking store and make several words out of each. Just another idea on being frugal!
