Easy Toolbox Labels

I constantly struggle with organization in my shop.  I have a lot of boxes with drawers, but always move and misplace things.  In aid of my shop woes I have found a better labeling scheme

You can buy sheets of whiteboard material that are magnetic backed.  9″x12″ sheets are less than 20 bucks  They are thin and easily cuttable with a paper cutter, scissors, or a straight edge and knife.


Small drawers got small labels big drawers got big ones.  They are easy to pickup, reposition, and when a drawer’s contents change, the label changes quickly too.  My only issue might be wiping them off too quickly with my fingers when grabbing the drawers.  A few weeks in the hot garage ought to cure the writing a bit.  Time will tell if this trick helps my organization problem.

    • I thought about the label maker, but that would be more permanent and I don’t have a label maker. If the wiping becomes a problem, then I will laminate with a spritz of spray lacquer.
