DYMO Label Manager – Closed

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.

  1. Would label storage bins, food containers names and dates of items I put in the freezer and leftovers

  2. I’d label my spices. I buy them in bulk & keep them in my own storage containers.

  3. I’d like to label crafting supplies and possibly books. Not sure I’m ready to take on books. 🙂

  4. The labeling possibilities are endless really. The first thing I would label is my sons smaller toys that I keep in containers such as Legos and Meccano type sets. It is hard to keep track of how many he has…

  5. I would like to label all my storage totes in the basement so I could find things when I need them
