freebie storage labels + getting organized


 

Way back before I had kids I saved this post from Making It Lovely that had a great idea for storing the never-ending mountain of baby and toddler clothes. They just grow so quickly. I love the idea of storing the clothes in clear plastic containers by size. It just makes so much sense. {Yes that is a big mess in the photo, on either side of the boxes, that I really tried to crop out. I'm not organized quite yet, but getting there}.

The designer in me couldn't help but make some pretty labels which I printed onto letter-sized paper, cut in half and stuck inside the box much like Nicole did. You could also print them onto a letter-sized label and stick them onto the outside of the box as well. They won't wobble as much that way!


So, I am sharing with you my 'designer' baby clothing storage labels in hopes that you will be inspired as I was, and perhaps a bit more organized too. 

Click the banners below to download PDF's of the girl or boy versions {newborn to size 2...just updated to size 5...just updated to size 10! Also updated - new 'maternity' and 'other textiles' labels.} and print away. You may want to print two copies so that you have 4 labels, one for each side of the box. Enjoy and happy weekend! 

UPDATE (May 17, 2016): I've made a few changes to the labels from suggestions I've received over the past few years. Hopefully these suit your needs a bit better! Please let me know if you have any other suggestions. Thanks!

Thank you so much for the download link for the boy box labels. So cute! I'm expecting my first soon and am trying to get it all the items organized.

Found you via Pinterest and just used these to package up my baby girl's newborn things! Thanks for the adorable labels :)

Thank you. I just printed labels for my new mommy daughter. I know she will love them.

Michal said...

These are so cute!! Just what I needed to organize baby girl's stuff. Thank you!!

Joelle said...

Glad to be of help! I will be adding a few more sizes (3,4,...) very soon!

THANK YOU!! I pinned this months ago but now that we have moved, the baby has grown, and we have been given a TON of hand me down clothes from new friends I had to reorganize our storage tubs. This is EXACTLY what I needed - looks much nicer than writing on masking tape!

Joelle Segal said...

Yay! Thanks for letting me know. :)

Jenny said...

These are great and I used them today while nesting for girl #2! Would there be anyway you could make a girl one that says newborn? If not I understand! Thanks so much!

Joelle Segal said...

Hi Jenny, I just added a newborn label, and I noticed 'size 1' had gone missing too. Thanks for the feedback! And good luck with #2. :)

Elle M.Bee said...

I would love it if you kep adding more sizes! I use these on all of my storage for my 3 children. Thank you for posting these!

Joelle Segal said...

Sure Elle M. Bee. I will need some bigger sizes soon, myself! I'll post some soon and let you know...

Tasha Lang said...

Hi Joelle - I found you via pinterest and was wanting to download your girl labels. For some reason it is not loading. Are they still available to download? Thanks!

Joelle Segal said...

Hi Tasha, sorry about that! I'm trying to fix it but in the meantime feel free to email me (contact info is in my Profile) and I will send to you directly.

Joelle Segal said...

Hi again! The label downloads should be working now, and I also updated them so they go from Newborn to Size 10. Enjoy!

Amanda said...

Hi there! I love these labels, I use them to organize my son's clothing. Thank you so much for creating them! Could I feature them in a blog post about organizing kids clothes? I'd love to share how easy and useful they were for me!

Thanks so much Amanda! I'm so glad they help you out. And yes, of course, please feel free to feature them in a blog post!

Thanks for this free download!
I downloaded the girls one and it seems that you didn't convert the font to curves in the pdf. So When I printed it, it used arial font and squished all of the letters together.
I used adobe acrobat DC to print it out.
Just thought you should know.
Thanks again for the free printable

Ashley said...

Thank you! These are perfect and my bins look beautiful. Have you considered making a label for 9-12 months to separate that size? Thanks again!!!

Joelle Segal said...

Hi guys! The text has now been outlined, so should appear ok when printed! And I added a 9 months label. Thanks for all of the suggestions. Glad these labels have been helpful.
