Have you ever held something in your hand and two seconds later it seems you have absolutely no idea where that item is? I’ve lost things left and right. Blame stress, blame anxiety, blame fatigue…whatever it is, it happens and drives me nuts (not to mention exacerbating anxiety!). While it certainly won’t get to the root of this particular problem, tagging items has become a crucial factor in increasing the likelihood that those lost items will actually be returned if forgetting happens outside the home.
On the flip side, they also help keep things organized from the jump. Now that my closets and pantry are labeled, I’m much less likely to just throw something in and forget it exists, or waste unnecessary time digging for something. Also, if you have kids, you know how helpful it can be to label everything.
Finally, I like to use labels to mark the date on beauty products or frozen products so I know exactly when to keep or throw them away.
Read on for a look at the best places to order personalized labels to keep your essentials and organized, no matter what your agenda.
Mabel’s Labels is the best overall. You can buy labels individually or in bundles, and they have dozens of themed packs from home and travel to kids and daycare. Plus, you can choose colors, patterns, and designs to personalize them to fit your exact aesthetic.
I love these writeable date labels from Sticky Monkey. They are great for frozen foods but also for beauty products, especially if you are prone to allergies.
Label Daddy is another great one stop shop. You can find wine labels, address labels, gift labels and clothing labels in all shapes and sizes to suit your needs.
Lil’ Labels makes great clothing labels because they don’t need to be ironed or written on. Translation: no need no fuss.
