Tip Tuesday :: It's All in the Writing

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

It's not secret that we absolutely LOVE a good label! When it comes to organization and all things NEAT, having a well written label is such a nice finishing touch that will most likely help keep you organized. Because after all, you are going to be less likely to put things away in wrong bins, baskets, and jars if the each have an appropriate label!

BUT what if you are not blessed with beautiful handwriting?? While some of the NEAT girls are better handwriters than others, all you need is a little practice and you will be well on your way to having beautifully written labels all around your home!
