Labeling plastic totes
My son and DIL downsized from a 3500+ square foot rental with a full attic and basement to owning a 1900 sf cape cod with no attic but full, unfinished (takes minimal water in heavy rain) basement. They have 3 children, the oldest is 4.
Naturally, everything that wasn't immediately needed for daily use was relegated to the basement. It looks like a warehouse down there.
They got a 12 tote rack storage system (someone posted about it here--WONDERFUL) and due to MIL enthusiasm, are the proud owners of twelve 18 gallon totes and twelve 30 gallon totes. YES, that's a lot of totes.
The issue now arises--how can the totes be labeled? Naturally, a tote labeled Boys Size 4T Clothing will not be needed in a few years. They don't want to write directly on the tote unless there's a marker that will completely erase after a time.
