Let’s face it! Getting organized is a process, physically and mentally. Everyone has their own setting on how long it takes to finish a project and how they go about it. So many give up because the rest of their family is not helping in the “keeping it organized” part of the process. Many family members do not care or even notice your efforts and this can be deflating. Or it could be that they do not know where you want things to go. Because we need help in keeping everything organized, it is in my opinion, essential that every home have a label maker. They are very inexpensive and it takes the guess work out of where things belong for husbands and children alike.
A label maker is the first thing you need when you start getting organized. No matter how small your project is, you need to get one of these guys. I love mine and I use it all the time, I’m actually addicted to it. It is so much fun to use!
You know those heavy boxes and containers that are on top of your closet? With a label maker, you don’t have to get them down to dig through them when you can see from where you are standing the list of what’s inside? And because this machine prints in a large font makes it very easy to see.
I am an storage container and label maker junkie!
Especially in my kitchen as well as my sewing & craft supplies. Reason being, I like to find what I am looking for quickly. I have a cabinet in my kitchen that is dedicated as a medicine cabinet. I keep small storage containers in there that separate categories. For example: Cold and allergy products in one that is clearly labeled. One for basic first aid, ointments, thermometers (yes I have several kinds), stomach upset, etc. A larger container is at the top that contains ace bandages, slings, braces, etc for the occasional sprain.
Why do I do this? If one of my grandchildren gets a boo boo and I need to doctor it quickly, as soon as I open this cabinet I see exactly what I need. No time for foraging through allergy & stomach products when all I need is basic first aid. It also works great when a visitor is helping me and goes to look for a band aid. Once I tell them where the correct cabinet is, I don’t have to explain where the band aids are. They know exactly where they are as soon as they open the cabinet door.
The same goes for craft & sewing supplies: My label maker is the absolute main tool I use to get my crafty stuff categorized as well. For example: Paints and Paint Brushes, ribbons, trims, glue gun and glue sticks, pompoms, pipe cleaners, etc. So if I have a quick project I want to do, why would I want to dig through all of my scrapbooking stuff and everything else, when all I need is some glitter? If the container is labeled “Glitter and Glue” it is instantly in your hand!
Using a label maker not only helps you find things quickly, but it also gives everything a very cohesive and organized look with it’s easy to read professionally printed fonts. Plus it just makes you feel good! :)
Is my house perfect? Absolutely not!!! If you ask me where something is, will I be able to tell you or get it for you immediately? Absolutely YES!!!!
However, I am considering getting this pink label maker here Brother P-touch Label Maker Pt-128af because simply because my husband likes to use mine in the garage. I am glad he is using the label maker out there, because it really makes it easy to find things, but It is very rarely put back into “My” tool kit.
“People can last a day or two without food and water,
but no one can live without a label maker!” – Adam Glassman in the Declutter issue of O Magazine, March 2012
