Apparently, I have become a mother even into my blood and my brain. On a quiet Friday, instead of baking cookies like I used to do or browsing the specialty grocery store for food and snacks, I labeled the cereal jars, flour and sugar canisters, and the arts and crafts closet with organizing Post It Designer ID labels.
This is not a sponsored post, I did not work with Post It on this. I simply saw the idea in HGTV magazine last month and ordered the labels from Amazon. The ideas in the magazine were really cute, one was a chalkboard surface and one was dry erase, I think. But these were the cheapest and easiest, and I thought it would add color to our pantry.
I actually used to have homemade labels on our baking supplies of a torn off index card with tape and shriveled sides, but it was a little “ghetto” looking, as my old high school language would have said. This is way more dainty.
Since they are labels, you can stick them into your printer, but I just wrote on them as I stood in the pantry organizing. The only problem is the labels are paper, and not laminated or made of dishwasher safe material, so you can’t get them wet, or wash your canisters. Luckily, one pack has 75 labels, so when the rare occasion comes that I wash these, I will just use a new one.
Since I was on a roll, I also stickered the bins in my crafts closet to say what is in each bin. This is rocket science, I know. But why hadn’t I used cute labels before? What else can I label? I have 75 to use! And now I need to find time to bake cookies.
