I am no expert in organizing. You should see the 'desk' area in my kitchen- I am a piler and have lots of toys that need a home But I do know labels are a good place to start. I just bought these black chalkboard vinyl labels at Very Jane. $6 for $10 of them.
I also wanted to share with you a FREE printable available at Better Homes and Gardens.
Perfect for pantry, entryway, toys, etc
Another GREAT place to find organizing ideas is IHeart Organizing: IHeart: Our Holiday Storage- Check out her latest post about holiday organization and labeling the boxes. Love her!
