If you take just a little time out of one of your days and tackle one area in your home, you will have "simple" in your life too. Being organized will free you up for so many others things in life too..family, friends, hobbies, time just for you.
Well, here's one more organizing tip to make your life simple...another name badge idea.
This is a coffee bar that I made out of an old desk and a recycled paint shelf from the basement.
It started out as my Baking Center. Held all my baking pans, recipes, baking goods etc...click HERE to see how I originally made this.
Then I switched out the hutch for a larger shelf and turned it into a coffee, tea and hot chocolate bar.
I used old boxes and metal electrical switch plates for the labels...click HERE to see that post for more.
Here it is today. Still a coffee bar, but more baskets.
Lots of different tastes in our house for teas and coffees...
So here's where I switched out the wooden boxes for baskets and used the name badge labels for organizing.
These are name badges. The clear plastic sleeves that hold your name card for work, conferences etc. You can buy them in any office supply. These are from Walmart..12 for $1.88.
I tied a label to each basket...and the sleeve holds the label or the item in each one.
Harry's favorite Keurig Coffee Pods...
My favorite Tea Bags...
My second favorite tea bags...
See how it just slips into the name badge.
Courtney's tea she bought in Japan last month...
Kelsie's favorite tea.
Courtland's favorite hot chocolate.
Name badges are so versatile. You can use them any where.

Click HERE for the post for the "Baskets on the Stairs" idea...other options there too.
I also use the name badges in the medicine closet to separate everything...cold meds, Tylenol, bandages, each person's medicines, ointments etc. Click HERE for that post for more...
I never hear..."Mom, I can't find a band aide."
There are so many uses for these name badges...
- kid's room...toys, clothes, homework
- scrap booking
- office stuff
- food closets
- bathroom closet
- holiday stuff
You name it...you can put a name badge on it!!
