Although I am NOT organized enough to actually have done it...I like the idea of using removable computer-printed labels to "name" boxes with contents and its assigned "home" ("batteries, battery tester & flashlight bulbs" and "left side top shelf broom closet" or some such. Then a label on the shelf "batteries etc" for the spot on the shelf.

I'm beginning to move some things to the "vacation" home. DS is coming to help and this is the system I hope to start there. Using removable Avery labels would allow for reconsideration if the first spot is not as convenient as I might have thought.

I like the spreadsheet idea...I think it would be easier to use on a house with your stuff already in it.

This board is always helpful,
