Do You Label Your Shelves and Storage Units?

I recently gave my closets a serious cleanse, and I'm concentrating on being the most neat and organized version of myself. I've been promptly hanging up my dresses and folding my sweaters, slipping my shoes into their little hanging cubbies, and making my bed every morning.

That said, the most organized version of myself is not a person who labels her shelves — or anything for that matter. The categorized sections of my closet are all mental ones, and until I have someone else putting away my laundry, I suspect they will remain that way. How about you?

I personally don't need it, but my husband very much does. I couldn't get him to ever put anything away if things weren't labeled. He claims he can't even tell which half full laundry hamper is for darks or whites. lol

I am in the process of going thru the house and organizing everything--it has been chaos for way too long. I am just starting to label shelves so other people know where to put things. If there is no space for it it needs to go away.

I wouldn't if my shelving was open, as pictured in the article. However, I have a lot of opaque boxes in my studio that are numbered, and I keep a list of what's in each box. When you have as many art supplies as me, nothing is more annoying that wanting to find one tool and being unable to locate it.
