DIY Closet Organizer Tags

These closet organizer tags are easy to make and a quick project.

I am trying to create more space and organization for my small, compact closet. 

I started the process by sorting through and donating those items I very seldom wear or haven’t worn in a very long time. 

It’s incredible the things we hold onto thinking SOMEDAY we might wear it.

It’s so refreshing to let things go!

So now that I have created a little more space, I wanted to do something to keep things more organized. 

I put the clothes in categories so I can find items more accessible. 

I came across this idea on Pinterest and thought I would give it a whirl.

Closet Organizer Tags Instructions

Using craft foam sheets (thick card stock or scrapbook paper would also work great), trace around a small bowl measuring around 4 inches or so.

Label the closet organizer tags using a marker. 

You could get a lot more fancy than this, perhaps using cute printed card stock or even typing it up on a computer. 

I just wanted something quick and easy.

Cut out and label as many as you need. These tags would be great in the kids closets too.

Printable Cash Envelope Tabs

Do you know what the Cash Envelope System is?

The envelope system is nothing new, it’s been around for decades. It is a method of keeping track of your money (managing your budget). These cash envelope tabs are the best! Dave Ramsey teaches this method in his training. I LOVE IT!

With the envelope system you use cash for different categories of your budget, and you keep that cash tucked away in envelopes. You can see exactly how much money you have left in a budget category just by taking a quick peek in your envelope. How easy is that?

Well it just became a lot easier.

I used to use actual envelopes and had a separate wallet for my cash. It was bulky, my envelopes wore out quickly, and there was a lot of fumbling around my wallet at the cash register. I got thinking, there has got to be a better way! So I designed these tabs and my life is much better, especially when it comes to spending.

These tabs fit right inside your existing wallet (unless you have a very small wallet). There is no need to have TWO wallets! Who has room for that?

The tabs can be purchased from my Etsy shop already made, but for those of you who like to Do It Yourself, why not just make them yourself? That way you can customize and print out as often as needed.

Where can you get the printable download?

These printable and editable cash envelope tabs are available  in my Etsy shop.

Where do you find a good wallet?

When looking for a suitable wallet, look for one that has a roomy area for a lot of cash. Make sure it is at least 7 1/2 – 8 1/2 inches wide. I like these Mundi wallets. You can find them in most retail stores or here on Amazon.

This is a no brainer, easy way to get control of your spending. Download and print as many time as you want.

Let me know how this system is working for you, and if you have any other comments or suggestions regarding budgeting or saving.

Happy Budgeting!
