In the spirit of getting organized, I found these adorable boxes at Target. You can't get organized without the proper tools, right? Knowing me, though, I would quickly forget what I put in these boxes. It would probably be years later before I remembered I already had enough ribbon to run circles around my house.
So I put a chalkboard label on each box. I like the versatility of the chalkboard so that I can change the name if I want to switch things up a bit and make the label as big as I need.
This is probably the easiest DIY I've done yet, so I won't even bore you by writing out steps. Here are the supplies I used:
--Chalkboard tile sticker (I found mine here)
--Cute box (I found mine at Target, but I couldn't find a link for them)
For the box that contains all my beads, I chose to just use a small, simple label that says "beads". Pretty straightforward, huh?
For the box that contains all my product packaging supplies, though, I wanted to add more detail so I would know exactly what the box contains. All too often, I rummage through a box and overlook what I'm searching for and spend hours looking for it. It gets really frustrating, so I wanted to clearly specify the contents to try to save me time in the future. I don't get orders all the time, so trying to find everything when I did was a mess.
How do you make sure you remember things you store in boxes?
