I can use a little organization in my home. I try to be as organized as possible, but there’s always room for improvement. One way to be organized is labelling. At work I use labels often to claim my stuff and to also try to make my files and books look neat and tidy. When I was offered a labeller to review, I got a little bit excited. It seems like a small thing, but such a handy tool can really help around the house.
When I received the DYMO Label Manager, I felt a little uncreative/overwhelmed, and wasn’t sure what I should start labelling. I figured starting with my name on some things might be a good place to start. Seeing as I want my things to remain mine and often little tiny fingers do tend to take over. But then I remembered, she can’t even read. So, I had to come up with another plan.
In less than a month, we are moving to a new home. This was my Ah-Ha moment, I can use my labeller in my new home and start from scratch to label everything. Kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, living room,,, you name it, I have dreams of labelling it. But in all reality, I think it’s just going to be used to label spices, shelves in the garage (so it doesn’t get turned upside down).
Here are some of the features of the DYMO:
- Easy typing on the computer-style keyboard – check
- Quick formatting with one-touch fast-format keys for text size, bold, italic, underline/box and vertical text – check
- Previewing layouts and effects prior to printing on the large LCD display – saving potential labels from a wasteful misprint – check
- Compatibility with DYMO D1 labels in ¼”, 3/8” and ½” widths – for any office application – ok, I believe you
- 6 font sizes, 8 text styles, 4 boxes, 228 symbols – check
- clip art images – check (lots and lots of them)
- Portability, as it’s powered by 6 AAA alkaline batteries – Check, but not included
But the best thing about the labeller, it’s only $35 – bonus! I kinda wish there were font choices, I like fancy printing/writing, but for under $35 I’m willing to forgive this minor detail. I also like white tape with black letters rather than black tape with white letters. Perhaps it’s just personal preference, but it’s what I’m use to in the office, so I guess I need to work on change.
In the meantime, I have started labelling items so people who can read will know what belongs to whom. I may or may not have claimed the labeller.
