Mothers are using the $460 Explore Air 2 Cricut label maker to tidy homes with military precision

Mothers are using a label maker to tidy their homes with military precision for spring, eliminating the hassle of rummaging in drawers forever.

The craze began when an Australian woman posted photos of her immaculately organised home in a Facebook group.

She told members she used the $460 ‘Explore Air 2’ Cricut from arts and crafts store Spotlight to label storage boxes and pantry baskets in the new house her family has just moved into in Melbourne.

The machine – which creates labels on everything from cardboard and vinyl to thicker materials like leather – heralds the end to rooting and misplacing belongings because the contents of containers can be clearly displayed on the front.

‘Can I borrow you for a weekend to do my house?’ one woman asked.

A second called the organisation ‘next level’ while a third described it as ‘an awesome job’.

Others were inspired to invest in a label maker of their own.
