It’s really a surprise that I didn’t start an organizing blog because I LOVE anything that has to do with organizing.
Recently, I purchased some labels and chalk markers from VersaChalk, mainly because I was looking for some labels for the set of baking containers I got at Goodwill. Let’s be real though, there is always a good reason to label the crap out of everything.
VersaChalk’s markers come in a set of classic colors which are more pastel, and neon colors. The classic colors come in a set of 10, and the neon colors come in a set of 8. Both colors have either fine tip or bold tip options. I decided on the neon set in fine tip.
The labels come in round and vintage shapes, and I decided on the vintage shapes because they’re really cute. There are 7 different shapes, and each package comes with 6 sheets for a total of 42 labels. The best part is the labels are reusable, and according to the website – dishwasher safe (if only I had a dishwasher). Another cool thing is that the labels come with a white marker, so you don’t necessarily have to buy a whole pack of markers.
1. Baking Containers
The first thing I labeled was the baking containers I mentioned. It takes a little bit to get the juices flowing from the marker, but once it’s going the markers write really well.
I love having these jars because they definitely class up the open cabinets. The labels just add on to the class factor 😉 I think this is one of the most obvious uses for these labels since it’s a bit of a mystery what is in each container without a label.
2. Plastic Drawers
Another area that can always use some labels are bathroom drawers. I labeled all the drawers except for the bottom because it’s kind of a mish-mosh drawer of stuff. I also realized that I need to practice cute cursive writing, and being able to center it. LOL. But I do really like how the blue marker looks with the blue bathroom decor.
Right now my drawers are a disaster and I definitely have too much stuff, but I just read The Magic of Tidying by Marie Kondo. I’ve started the decluttering process and I’ll be getting to these drawers soon!
Along with my bathroom drawers, I also labeled the plastic drawers in my bedroom for socks, underwear, and bras. Not that these drawers really need labels because I’m the only one that needs to get stuff out of them, but it does look cute 🙂
Another way I think these labels will come in handy in our house is using them to label our leftover containers in the fridge. Basically, if we can’t tell what something is or how old it is, it doesn’t get eaten and sits in the fridge for months until it’s nasty and needs to be thrown out.
Since the VersaChalk labels are easily removable just slap one on a Tupperware container when putting leftovers in the fridge and write what’s in the container, and the date it was prepared.
4. Kid’s Dresser or Toy Box
I’ve seen some things on Pinterest how labeling kids drawers with what goes in them is a really good way to help kids know what clothes go where. I think these labels would be perfect for this type of labeling because many of the labels are big enough to write or draw pictures if your child doesn’t read yet.
The same idea can also be applied to toy boxes to help kids see where to put which toys in order to keep everything easily organized.
5. Linen Closet Bins
Lastly, I think these labels are really handy for labeling storage in the linen closet so it’s easier for yourself or guests to be able to locate extra items.
I haven’t quite gotten to organizing in here yet either, but soon! I love how much the green marker matches these bins I got at the dollar store.
And just so you have a comparison of what all the colors look like, here is a shot of some horrible doodles. As basically every single one of my teachers said through school (and still say), “I’m not an artist”
What needs labeling around your house? Can you think of any other creative uses for these fun labels?
P.S. I was not compensated for writing this post in any way. I bought the markers and labels with my own money and thought I’d give a review for anyone who is interested.
See You Around!
