Labelling tips to organise your home

Labelling tips to organise your home

If you work from home, you know the importance of organisation. Not only do you need to be productive and focus on your work, but you also have to maintain a semblance of order in your personal space. That can be tough when your living and working areas are one and the same. But it’s not impossible…

With a little bit of strategy and some clever labelling, you can create a system that works for you. And with our range of labels and label printers, organising your workspace and around the home has never been so easy. Here are a few tips to get you started.

Your work from home setup

Did you know that labelling your supplies and belongings can prevent them from being misplaced or accidentally disappearing off your desk? Although you may not have to ward off your colleagues from stealing your favourite pen at home (maybe instead it’s a family member, housemate, partner, curious cat…), labelling your office space or your desk can give you that sense of fulfilment from being organised, and in turn enhance and support your productivity.

A Brother P-touch machine like the PT-D460BT will make itself right at home – with its durable, laminated tapes you can easily label your folders, books, pens and computer cables – the possibilities are endless!

Your kitchen and pantry

It only takes a few quick scrolls through Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest to see how creative people are getting with organising their pantries and kitchens into organisational masterpieces. Why waste time trying to figure out if it’s plain or self-raising flour in that container? How many times have you heard your partner/children/housemate exclaim “I don’t know where that goes” in a bid to get out of washing up or unstacking the dishwasher?

Although aesthetically pleasing, having a well organised kitchen and pantry is hugely beneficial to help keep your kitchen clean, tidy and save you time doing chores when you’d rather be doing something else.

Kids’ stuff

With children back at school – meaning that you’ve likely spent a small fortune on a long list of things to get them ready for the new school term…90 per cent of which is probably going to go missing before the term is over. Although by no means a new concept, labelling your child’s belongings such as backpacks, clothes, stationery… anything you can stick a label on…in a bid to prevent their belongings being lost is a huge advantage to having them returned to you.

Our TZe laminated labels come in a range of colours and designs and have been tested to the extreme so you know that these fun, personalised labels not only look great, but are made to last.

Your bathroom

Bathroom makeup boxes with labels attached.

When you have to share a bathroom with a number of people, the morning rush can be particularly chaotic. Minimise the chaos by labelling a caddy in the bathroom with your name and put all of your products in there so you can be more efficient in the mornings.

By giving everyone their own caddy for their products and accessories, you’ll no longer experience that overwhelming sense of frustration that comes from rummaging through the cupboard while looking for what you need – save the time, mess and stress! It may also stop others from pinching some of your expensive cleanser you’re not willing to share too…

Your shed

A toolbox with each item labelled.

If you don’t have a shed full of stuff that you’re not sure what to do with, half-finished projects, and tools laying around all over the place – you probably know someone that does. Getting your shed organised in a way that allows you to find what you’re looking for not only saves you time (so you can finish off that cubby house you’ve been putting off for months…) but also money.

Ensuring that everything has its place means that you don’t accidentally purchase the same tools twice, and you know where to find them when you need them. Having a well labelled area for your tools also helps you store them safely and can prevent any accidental injuries due to improper storage.

So, if you’re working from home and feeling unmotivated or disorganised in your surroundings, take a little break from your desk, grab a P-touch label printer, your favourite TZe labels and accessories, and organise a space around your home today.
