It’s time to get organized, January is National Get Organized Month!

With the start of the New Year and all the resolutions that go along with it, January is the perfect time to commit to being more organized. Taking some time to sort through your home and de-clutter your life will help streamline your habits to save time, save money and reduce stress.



From the junk drawer to the closet, the kitchen to the garage, one helpful tool that takes the stress out of organizing is the P-Touch label maker. The latest generation boasts an endless selection of colors, fonts, patterns, symbols and tapes – including both fabric and waterproof tape – to make organization easy AND stylish!

Here’s some of the pretty labels I made with my new Brother P-Touch label maker. I love all the extra features it has to create borders and choose from various fonts. It allows for so much personalization.

Organizing ideas: P-touch label maker, such a handy tool for so many things!

From the bedroom to the office, there are endless clever ways that the P-Touch label maker makes organizing easy. Here are some of my favorite organizing ideas:

    Never accidentally unplug the wrong thing… That’s something i really need. There is a lot of cables around my TV and it looks so messy: :( Thanks for the idea.

    This has to be the coolest label maker I’ve seen. It makes being organized a lot more fun. What did you use to print on in the bull clips? I need that. I hope to find the P Touch Label Marker here.

    I love this. You are so creative. I need to find my label maker and get organized. Thank you for the reminder!

  • Andrea Johnson

      That’s awesome! He’s too cute!

  • Penny @ pennyspassion.blogspot

    This definitely puts my label maker to shame! I label everything and would love this new one with the ability to make cuter labels. Glad I saw this!

    “Go eat an apple”- LOVE! I could not live without my labeler lol, thanks for giving me some awesome new ideas to use it for :)

    Awesome photography! Cute and practical ideas.

  • Mama to 5 Blessings

    I have this same label maker. It is an amazing resource when you have a big family!

    Very practical idea, but it would take me years to organize my home like this. My husband never grew up so I’m still picking up after him. He’s the kind of guy where he fixes it and anything he used lays where it’s at & I’m the put away person & it takes most of my time cleaning up after him. Wires! HA My husband is the wire king! He’s a musician so we have speakers for everything. Everything has to sound just right. I would love this. My desk is very well organized just everything else is not! :(

  • Lisa @bitesforbabies

    I’m a HUGE fan of labels but don’t use them enough at home! I especially love the idea of labeling the clips and wires!

    I am all about trying to get organized this year! All of these labels would help so much! I think I need to look in to a label maker!

  • Nina Say

    I had no idea it was get organized month. Probably because I’m the least organized person on the planet.

  • Kim Smith

    I got one of those for Christmas and I plan to be well organized this year. Well, that’s the plan at least. I will try!

  • Fiona Naughton

    Oh I love this, I need one of these label makers in my life. Love the quote label on the top of the paper, so pretty!

      Thanks Fiona!

  • Carly Anderson

    OMG, I’ve been looking for a great label maker! As a teacher, I label EVERYTHING!

    As an even & wedding planner I use a label maker frequently. However, it seems I’ll have to replace mine with this one

  • Rebecca Swenor

    These are awesome tips indeed. It is so true that decluttering does reduce stress. This is so something I must do. Thanks for sharing.
