Getting your home organized can be easier than you think!! All it takes is some time, a few giant garbage bags, and printable sticker labels. Seriously, that’s it!! I honestly believe that we overthink organizing, and make it out to be something that is more challenging than it needs to be.
By breaking it down into smaller steps, it doesn’t have to be as difficult as we like to make it seem. Perfect is all in the eye of the beholder. For some, just having things off the floor is perfectly organized. While for others, creating a Pinterest-worthy home is what perfectly organized means to them.
Don’t overthink it, and just get started!
For starters, I shared my tips for how to declutter your entire home in one weekend. This tutorial breaks down all my tips for how to completely declutter your home in 3 days or less!! Seriously, I have done this with clients and it works! The biggest trick to this is carving out the time to do it. It will take some will-power to say no to events going on. But when things are organized in your home, you can feel more relaxed and enjoy life!!

Once things are completely decluttered, putting everything back in an orderly fashion can cause challenges for my clients. This step doesn’t have to be tricky. Simply group everything that is left together. Store those items together in the same location. This is called creating zones in the organizing world. The reason this method works so well is because it has been tested for decades. And I mean tested. Did you know that the grocery store is set up in zones? Target is set up in zones? That is why we love these stores, because everything has a place.
Zone your home like you would find at the grocery store or Target. All kitchen stuff should be in the kitchen. (You would be surprised by how many small kitchen appliances I have found in other rooms of the house.) Keep all toiletries together, either in linen closets or bathrooms.
Plus, zoning off your home makes putting things away much easier. Think about it… when you come home from the store, do you have to think about where the toilet paper rolls go?? How nice would it feel to just know that everything has a place!! Use Post-It notes until you feel like you remember where the zones are. You can even create printable stickers labels to help you stay organized.
The last step to getting a perfectly organized home is to actually label everything. Seriously!! Think about it… all those gorgeous pantries you see on Instagram look incredible because they have beautiful labels. It really is that easy!! I have seen the huge transformations of my clients’ spaces once we add the labels. It turns any space from blah to beautiful!
If you don’t love your handwriting, I have a secret for you…create printable stickers, turn them into labels, and adhere them onto your bins!!
My Favorite Products For Printable Stickers
Start by printing out my FREE printable sticker labels I created by signing up below! Simply get some printable stickers paper. Run it through your printer. Let it dry before you start cutting. This way you won’t wipe off any of the ink! I try to print off one page at a time so the labels can dry, or you can easily remove the labels so the next sheet doesn’t smudge the first!
I use a paper cutter to cut out the printable stickers. This way I can get clean lines. I lay the sticker paper out and make sure I cut around the letters. I do like to leave a little bit of sticker around the text so that I can make sure it sticks well. But you can easily cut them out with a good pair of scissors. Just make sure you don’t cut through another text label when using your scissors.
Now everything is perfectly organized because you decluttered, zoned your home, and labeled everything!
Not loving your labels?? I created amazing printable stickers label packs for getting everything in your home labeled!! There are over 60 individual labels that can be printed out on 4 sheets of sticker paper. They are sized to fit these bin clips, stick onto any smooth-surface bin like these, or jars like these. These are the best option for wanting to get your home organized with labels!!
Plus these printable stickers are an instant download, so you can get them printed immediately!! Grab yours in either caps font or hand-lettered font! I have both around my home because some rooms need that dressy feel like the hand-lettered, while the caps is perfect for kid spaces and office spaces! The caps font is more modern. I have this font in my office, garage, and linen closet. The hand-lettered font is more traditional. I have these labels in my pantry, bathroom, and kitchen!
The caps font pack includes over 60 individual labels on 4 sheets of paper. You just have to print off the labels onto sticker paper and add to bins, clips, or jars! Click here for the capital sticker labels!
Both label packs have instructions, 4 pages of individual labels, and over 60 labels! Simply download the instant download that is sent to your inbox. Then print off the label pages onto sticker paper. Cut out each individual label using either a paper cutter or scissors. Peel off the backing. Adhere the sticker to the bin, jar, or clip you want to label. Add the items into that bin or jar, and you are totally organized!!
