Default Organizing breakthrough

I'm reorganizing my space today because I added some new shelves - gotta love the Container Store for putting their Elfa shelving on sale every January! As I was trying to think of labels to put on various baskets and containers, I realized that coming up with the right nouns was causing me difficulty - too many categories! Then it hit me - for a lot of things, VERBS work better! I now have baskets labeled Cut, Stick, Fasten, Emboss, Clean, and Unmount. I can't believe how much easier it made sorting some of this stuff! Some things still have noun labels, of course, but this verb thing really helped me a lot.

Brilliant is right!

I was totally inspired by your posts on breaking up my sets and am in the process of getting the index sheets done and putting all the laminated cards in the pouches...

Now I know how to label my drawers of "stuff"! Thanks for the GREAT idea!

PS...check out my gallery for my pics of my reorganizing project...100% inspired by you!
