7 Unusual Uses For Custom Labels At Home

When most people think about how they are going to use labels, including custom labels, their primary thoughts are likely to be their pantry or their kitchen. Admittedly, these are the two areas in a home where custom labels are most commonly used, but what if we told you there are countless other ways you can put custom labels to good use?

You might be thinking, “Yes, I know. I can use them in other rooms too”, and you would be correct. Custom labels are an ideal way to keep your whole home organised by using them in your utility room, bathroom, home office, garage, or workshop. Specifically, custom labels can be used to identify and organise many items, making it easier for you to locate them.

However, what we are going to do is outline seven ways to use custom labels that we are pretty sure that the vast majority of people reading this may not have thought of before. As such we hope they give you even more reasons to use custom labels to make your life easier.

Personalised Gift Tags

Instead of using the same old gift tag types for birthdays, weddings, and Christmas, why not make your own distinctive and personalised gift tags. Personalised santa sacks are a great way to enhance the Christmas spirit. Custom labels can be made to any shape, colour, and size, plus the message on them can be unique.

Spice And Herb Jars

When you purchase pre-packaged herbs and spices you will be paying a lot more than if you buy those same herbs and spices loose from a local market. So, you should buy loose herbs and spices, store them in individual jars, and apply a custom label to identify each jar.

Toy Boxes

Parents will know that when a child just has to have a certain toy, and you cannot find it, there can be a tantrum brewing. You can make it much easier for you and your children to find toys by separating them into plastic tubs or boxes and giving each a custom label with the words, “Cars”, “Puzzles”, “Lego”, etc.

House Plants

This is an ingenious way, not only for you to remember what each plant is yourself, but to help anyone visiting your home learn what each plant is. A custom label on the pot with both its English and Latin name is sufficient, although you might wish to add some information about the plant too.

Educational Aids

Whether it be numbers, words, colours, geography, or even a foreign language, using custom labels on cards to help your children learn is one of the best ways we know of using custom labels. Apart from on cards as prompts, you can use them as an interactive learning tool for children as they apply labels in a workbook.

Reminders For Your Family

If you want a unique way of providing reminders to the rest of your family, then custom labels fit the bill. There are endless reminders you could create such as “Dirty clothes in the brown basket only, and “Turn the light off when you leave the room”. Doubtless, you can think of many more.

Personal Development

This is for anyone who wishes to improve themselves via self-help and personal development. What you do is create powerful personal development truisms and quotes on custom labels, then stick them where you are certain to find them throughout the day to remind you of those positive and uplifting messages.
