labels and binders and organizing, oh my!

I love organizing just as much as I love to craft. So, of course, I want my organization to be pretty. I know you know what I am saying. I picked up these nifty little labels awhile back for a few bucks at Ross. It was one of those things where it was like, do I really NEED pretty labels? My impulsive and creative side screamed, YES, and I left with TWO boxes! Needless to say, it was a good lack of self-control purchase because I just love them and use them on everything!
Instead of expensive matching binders, I go for the cheap ones and dress them up with fun labels.
Having a binder of good ideas is almost just as fun as actually putting to use the ideas...
I make my own divider labels...here they are folded and stuck to my coupon organizing sheets (which are baseball card holders).
Made my own dividers with some card stock...so much cuter and way cheaper! And because I am in a generous mood, I would like to give some of these babies away! So comment if you would like to enter. The winner will walk away with 10 sheets of labels so that you too can be a fashionable organizer! I will announce the winner around Monday or something...
How do you make your organizing pretty?

  11. I am in the process of reorganizing. I got rid of our HUGE file cabinet. We really didn't need something that big. I put the files and dividers into baskets on our shelves. Then monthly bills and statements go into three ring binders. I have been using card stock too! I love how you are using the labels. If they make it here I am sure I will put them to good use.

  12. Oh, I knew I loved you. Crafting AND organizing.
    I love my recipe binder and I'm always trying to organize the kid's stuff. I usually get images from google so they can "see" what is in each drawer, basket or bin.

  19. I wish I could say I LOVE organizing, but to see my house would show you that I don't. BUT because I don't love it, I desperately need to do it! I am in the process of trying to organize my kids' rooms and the den (need more space for one more!) and could really use those labels!

  28. LOVE the idea about using plastic baseball card holders for coupons, genius!!! I too love organizing and have been working on organizing my loose recipes. While I have the plastic envelopes to hold them, I need to make dividers (e.g.,dinner, dessert) to separate them. Hopefully I can use some of your ideas for inspiration and motivation.

  31. Oh Fashionista -
    I have been decorating my binders for a few years and love the idea of using something pretty on the file folders. Good one! Saw some pretty file folders on a website and decided to try to spiff mine up with stickers and little pictures. Thanks for you ideas.
