Tips for Labeling

  • The best system is the simplest. You may need to have someone help you identify items and apply the labels. Be organized. For example, keep all canned vegetables on one shelf or one section of a shelf, all fruits on another.
  • Different labeling ideas: rubber bands, tactile letters made with puff paint (available in craft stores), Braille, large print labels taped onto canned goods or held on with rubber bands.
  • Magnetic letters are good for labeling cans.
  • For labeling clothing: Braille clothing labels, safety pins, sock tuckers, drawer dividers.
  • Electronic Labeling devices includes: Pen Friend, Smart phone apps, bar code readers.
  • Place matching outfits on the same hanger.
