Organizing with Labels

I’ve been on a bit of an organizing kick lately and it was all spurred on by a lovely basket of goodies that the folks at Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery sent me. The assortment of beautiful labels jumped out and soon I was labeling everything! Here are a few images of my favorite labels and how I used them in my own home…

reusable chalkboard labels for boxes - Simplified Bee #labelsThe scalloped chalkboard labels are fabulous and the fact that they are reusable is the best! Just write, erase, and write again!

durable labels for storage boxes - Simplified Bee #labelsOur garage recently got a little makeover, so the durable labels for all the bins came in very handy. I printed them out using an easy to use template at Avery.

The Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery offers a variety of festive mailing labels for the holiday, but this one with gold detail went with the Christmas card I already selected!

And how cute is the round, reusable chalkboard label? I’m using it here as a gift tag. Love it!

Inspired to get organized too? If so, Staples is offering a 40% off coupon on any one Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery product in store, or $4 off $10 at – now until November 16th.

Happy organizing,

Beautiful {and Simple} Ideas for Displaying Christmas Cards

Receiving Christmas cards from family and friends is one of the big highlights of the season. We collect and display ours in a vintage wicker sleigh. And we have done it this way for several years. But after researching this post for a Simplified Bee reader who asked for creative ideas for displaying holiday cards, we might have a different approach next year.

Here is a simple and elegant way to display holiday card using an existing mirror. Martha Stewart used Lametta tinsel to create three swags perfect for hanging season’s greetings.
