Buy a labeler! I thought I was pretty organized, until our basement flooded and we had to move everything to our garage. As I was going through it to see if we could get rid of anything, I was shocked at how I couldn't find anything. It was all in totes, but not labeled. I borrowed a friends labeler, and will be getting my own! What a great way to keep track of everything in each tote!

I sometimes try to plan the "perfect" solutions for storage/organization. I see it in my mind's eye; see-thru storage containers, in all shapes & sizes, perfectly labeled, stacked impeccably on perfectly placed shelving, in a conveniently located, oversized closet.
Nothing wrong with the fantasy, but in the meantime, my time may be better spent doing an "imperfect" job of it all, as opposed to browsing thru "The Container Store" website, and pricing out every labeler known to mankind. 20
