The DYMO LabelManager 160 - This Label Maker Is a Game Changer6:00 am
The busier life gets, the more organized you've got to be. And with back-to-school and back-to-work happening next week, you've got to be able to find everything at a moment's notice. And not to scare you, but there's not much of a break between after Labour Day and Christmas, so the more efficient you can be, the better.
Just think - not only can you finally file all of your papers away in the proper place (when you've got to locate your insurance papers in an instant, you'll know where they are for once), you can reorganize the kitchen (canisters marked "flour" and "sugar" makes baking cookies a heckuva lot easier) and get your kids set for school (each child gets their own lunch sac personalized and labeled, so no more morning squabbles).
Once you've got the LabelManager 160 in hand, you'll notice how many things you'll want to tackle now:
- I am going to redo my spice jar labels because my handwritten ones are hard to read ("cumin" looks like "capon," which doesn't make a lick of sense).
- Look at me creating new files for my finished projects as well as for new clients (my goal is to put every piece of paper away in a folder). How awesome is that. And I can read them because they're not handwritten (see point above. Also see my fiance Scott, who he has to read my shopping lists and love notes left on his desk and then often has to spend the morning deciphering them).
- I am also going to town on a bunch of banker boxes and magazine file boxes in my office so I don't have to open them to find out what's in them (every little bit helps).
I've even took my label maker into the bedroom and labeled boxes and baskets inside the closet (again, no more wasted time having to take them down and check the contents to know what's where) and into the hall closet (shoe boxes now call out their fabulous contents).
If I had kids, I'd be labeling them head to toe - lunch boxes, binders, knapsacks, clothing baskets... everything.
And you can stylize your label with hot keys that allow you to change the font size, direction and whether you want it underlined, boxed, italized or bold with one simple click. Sweet.
