Upgrade storage containers without a messy succession of sticky or peeling labels. Tags made with clothespins let you mark anything -- from shoeboxes to sturdier bins, such as these raffia boxes -- and change them as often as needed. Hot-glue clothespins to containers; affix either a written label, as on page 27, or a sample of their contents, like the fabric swatches above. When it's time to re-label, just unclip the old marker, and fasten on a new one.
