When you are storing items within a larger box (such as what reams of paper are housed in) for long-term storage, make the label of the contents on the computer, and then do a copy-and-paste two additional times so that you have 3 identical labels. Tape one on the top, one on the long side and one on the short side or end of the box.
After labeling boxes, I also print the list of box contents and place that list in my storage notebook. For instance, Box #1..baby bottles, 0-3 mo clothes, etc. Box #2 Cooking gear for camping, plates, cups, silverware. That way when I need something, I look first at the lists in the notebook to determine what # box the item I want is stored in. This one step can saves me a lot of time!
