Sort of silly question re labels

When we were stranded in the RV, I went through cabinets & organized everything. DH now wants to label each cabinet with a Ptouch labeling system. I'm concerned about it looking tacky, but more importantly damaging the finish on the cabinets. It has no basement storage.

Instead make a system and card file.

System is simple.

D driver side
P passenger side
T top
B. Bottom

1 is front most counting towards back.

DT1 is first top cabinet from front on driver side.

In a card file or spreadsheet make note of where everything is.

Inside the coach is a "pink" job. That means you control what goes on in there. If you say no P touch labels, then that is what it is. Now the outside is the "blue" job and if hubby wants to label something, he can label it outside

What, and take away all the fun of hunting stuff. Also then would not be able to come in after a long day and just throw stuff in the most convenient place

I agree.....labelling inside would be tacky.

I think you'll go nuts trying to keep up with it. I take digital pictures of the cabinets while they are open and the pics are stored in a file on my computer. Easy to update when necessary. It's also for insurance purposes.

I added my comment above to give dh something to do...

The question is this...

What is done in s&b?

Labels would be tacky for sure.

Most folks can remember in general where certian things go and can learn over time.

Built database to manage things in shop but too much effort to use so most things are known...others result in unplanned cleaning to locate the thing you forgot where it was then why you were looking for it when you find it.

If DH had his way, the S & B would be labeled, too. I kept that from happening by having him label all "HIS" stuff first. He hasn't finished with his stuff, so he hasn't started on mine yet <evil grin>. I think getting him to take pictures of everything inside & keeping 2 copies: 1 in RV & other @ home for insurance purposes makes good sense. I'll see if I can get him to buy into that idea. Thank you! Wish I'd thought of it.

Get him to create a spreadsheet to document the photos.

Will take a lot of time to complete...

I use a 3 x 5 card system for household chores in the S&B. I can use a simplified one for when we are in the RV & add the ctclog of items as a section. Oh, this is getting good.
