So I started labeling things in my house in the language I’m trying to learn to stay a little more organized and at the same time keep track of my language learning. The advantage of having labels at home is that it is a very good way to integrate a language lesson into your daily routine, and it is really useful when you are learning visually. I don’t know about the others, but since I spend more time at home, it seems like there are millions of little things to do around the house, like do-it-yourself projects that I never had the energy to clean out my closet after spending months saying “I’ll do it next weekend” and organizing the parts of my life that were always easier to keep a little messy. So if you want to reorganize, why not turn it into a language learning session by gradually labeling it in another language? Besides, it will be a good test every time you come back to camp to look for something. The easiest way to label objects without damaging the object to be labeled is to use Washi tape or masking tape. Labeling on your fridge is perfect for anyone who loses things in their fridge and finds them a few days late behind a pickle jar or who buys something that was already in their fridge. I know I’m guilty of having a junk drawer in my kitchen, and a labeled drawer arrangement can keep you from rummaging through those loose stacks, tires, and screwdrivers. I’m always thinking about how to hack into my language classes, and this is one of the reasons I love Rosetta Stone lessons and straightforward activities that fit easily into my daily routine. I’ve seen pictures of people tagging files on their desks by subject, tagging the tops of their spices for easy top-to-bottom searching, and tagging storage boxes in their attics. I decided to label the layout of my kitchen drawers, so here’s some of the vocabulary I used It’s one of the most obvious things to label on this list, but if you’ve moved around a few times, things can be a little more confusing than you’d like. In my house, when I was young, of all our moves, we had Halloween decorations in our cardboard boxes marked “X-mas” and my mother’s old dolls in a box marked “kitchen”. So, when I looked at some organizing tips yesterday, I noticed many items that suggested I labeled the items in your house. I know I was guilty of buying flour to make some kind of dessert, going home and finding a bag of flour that had been hidden behind a large sugar bowl the whole time.
