Labels, Labels, Everywhere!

 

Thanks for your permission to take a little nap yesterday.

And by little I mean 15 minutes.

Power naps are the new black.

Those were 15 glorious minutes though.

Anyhoo.

I decided that today I would share a little of my OCD.

My neurosis if you will.

The one that causes me to alphabetize, well…everything.

And label everything else.

Mr.. Because Wendi Said So bought me a label maker for Christmas.

Which made me fall in love with him all. over. again.

I started removing all the old labels from containers and boxes.

I then proceeded to use an entire roll of labeling tape.

In two hours.

I then made  asked (in my sweetest voice) Mr.. Because Wendi Said So to get off his keister and buy me some more.

He did.

And then I went about relabeling my pantry.

Everything got a fresh label.

A face lift.

I can’t tell you how excited I get when I fling open the pantry doors looking for Oreo's rice cakes.

Now if I could just get the hubs to put a fresh coat of paint in there….

Love the labels...but I love your pantry even more...I might be slightly jealous.

I love labels however I rarely use them - I'm not that organized. I'd like to be, I'm just lazy. I'll blame it on the kids, though.

I think I need you to give my pantry a makeover. Seriously. I do.

Cecily R said...

If we had one of those I just KNOW the wrong things would get labled.

You are NEVER peeking into my pantry. Never. You would die.

I just want you to know that if you ever come over, there will be a lock on my cabinets.

And no, I will NOT give you the key. I could not withstand that kind of embarassment.

WAIT A SECOND.

Maybe I would give you a key.
And a label maker.
And about 5 hours of uninterrupted "cabinet organization time". :)

Those labels and that organized pantry are true things of beauty.

You always make me laugh, "Power naps are the new black." So, good.

Wendi....You just won a week free at the Staffy bed and breakfast. You must come ASAP....
and bring your label maker.

I have a pantry and several closets that are in need of your services. You can label to your hearts content....my kitchen food pantry...our year supply stuff...my sewing room closet....my craft room closet....my computer area stuff....etc...etc..

Hurry over...I will be anxiously waiting for you! Thanks dear

Oh.my.goodness. Remember my post about my organizational skills taking a down turn? There is a reason why I didn't post a picture of my pantry.
