Okay, here’s the deal.
I bought this label maker a few months back and after that I that I was hot stuff. I love having things organized and I love making it easy for my family to help me keep the house organized.
So back to this label maker…right.
With it, I was labeling cabinet shelves, refrigerator shelves and everything. In some cases it was helping like here, here, here and here but then in other cases…not so much.
But then…I decided to step it up a notch because stick on labels just wasn’t gonna cut it on everything.
I wanted to label my canvas laundry baskets to make sorting easier for the kids but instead of buying labels I made some in Microsoft Word.
After printing them out, I cut them to size and attached them to cardboard using packing tape.
I used clear packing tape to secure them to the cardboard backing because…
1) I don’t have a laminator.
2) I wanted my labels to be moisture and stain proof.
I simply cut out each label and a piece of cardboard then started taping.
Once all the labels we’re mounted on the cardboard with tape, I attached them to the laundry baskets using binder clips.
I truly see my kids getting better at properly sorting the laundry now that I’ve labeled the baskets.
Before now I’ve been sounding like a broken record constantly reminding them to sort their clothes into the proper baskets.
With the new labels I think it makes it easier for them to get it right and become better laundry room helpers.
What kind of mom are you when it comes to household chores?
a) Do you do it yourself so it’s done the way you want it?
b) Do you let your children do it even though it might not be done correctly?
