Default Re: I just get so tired of this! (vent)

I have a serious love affair going on with my label maker....

While I don't label kitchen cabinets, or anything that can be seen by company, I go nuts in areas of the house that only "we" see.

We've got a set of two drawers at the top of the stairs to the second floor. Both drawers are labeled. One is for school uniforms that DS1 currently fits into, and the other is for hand-me-down uniforms that will eventually either fit him, DS2 or DD. We have cabinets and shelves in the boys' bathroom upstairs that are meticulously labeled. They have labels such as baseball socks and pants, soccer shin guards, humidifiers, air conditioners (we have window units in the upstairs- our house is 140 years old!), toilet paper, boys' winter outdoor clothing (hats, snow pants, etc), "regular" hand-me-downs (not uniforms!), etc.

Same thing with shelves in the basement. Party supplies, canning supplies, craft stuff- it's all labeled. It seems ridiculous to have such specific labels on everything, but it saves us from every spring/baseball season/fall/cold and flu season from wondering where on EARTH the air conditioners/baseball socks/4th of July decorations/humidifiers are!
