Organization with Drawer Labels.

About a month or so ago, i decided to add labels to Zion's dressers so he could put away his clothes appropriately. Folding and sorting laundry are my least favorite things to do and it seems as if I do them all. the. time. I had to come up with a way to lessen the chore and help Zion stay organized in his room.  Zion thrives on structure,  so the labels were a great idea! and he actually enjoys helping his Mama(most of the time).

I printed the labels which you can download for free here. We then cut them out and attached to each drawer. I printed them on shipping labels that have the adhesive backing so it was just a matter of peeling and sticking them on; very easy.

Since we've placed them on,  there have been less incidences of clothes on the floor etc. Zion knows exactly where the different clothing items go and almost always places them there. It's also great to know where everything is when getting him ready for school in the mornings.

Most of all he learns how to be independent. Have a great weekend everyone! xx

  2. What a great idea! It's always a challenge to teach our children to be orderly. I found it a loosing battle :\ and then finally .. when they moved out and got their own place, things changed!! I think that all this goodness is going IN and eventually all of the efforts we put in to raising our kids pays off;) Have a great Friday! xxleslie
