organize me monday #2

I am always trying to improve the organization systems in our home. Life changes quickly and it is easy to out-grow or want to improve a system of organizing.

My son has a birthday near Christmas. So after December is over, I feel the need to improve toy storage in his room, to make things more efficient.

Last December I bought 4 blue storage bins from Ikea for $1.99 each. I have since bought 4 red ones to add to the mix....

Because the bins are up so high, I knew I needed to add labels so it was possible to know what was in each bin and not have to bring a bunch down in order to find something.

I made up these labels & just added them to my photo order at Walmart. I then cut then down so they were square, then added then onto the bins.

I am so happy with the result. I also have the option of switching the labels as needed.

I was toying with the idea of labeling the smaller green bins in his closet, too. But I think they're fine as they are, because it's possible to see the contents.

Here's the printable I made. If you want to make your own, just click on the photo below to enlarge it, then save it to your computer. Then your can add on your text & print them off.

Happy organizing!! :)
