Did you see the feature in February's Domino on organization and labeling? Well we're all for keeping things orderly, but why not use clear containers and skip the extra label step? Let the contents speak for themselves, we say.
Usually used for kitchen storage (as shown in Frances' house tour, here), a clear container is a great option if the items being contained are uniform, and even better if they're also attractive. We liked Martha's use of clear containers in her new craft room (shown at top), holding colorful spools of thread. The Container Store has a great selection, but of course there are thousands of options readily available all over the place. And for no cost, you can repurpose empty food jars (just soak them until the label easily peels off) for storing stuff all over the house.
