A girl and her label maker ...


My Brother P1290 - he's like family

Seasonal Storage Solutions - Pantry Style
Take the guesswork out of "Who brought the hot dish?" Also, more likely you'll get your dishes back after a big party or bake sale. 


An absolute sanity saver for coralling all the chargers for various phones, cameras, mp3's. 
Shoe organizer + labels = BRILLIANT! Cost about $4


Note each pocket is labeled so all "pieces parts" stay together.


How proper cord labeling promotes world peace. Take a minute to label the cords too. You'll thank yourself for it later. This allows you to return items to their proper pocket. More importantly, it prevents fighting when your kids have duplicate items. When only ONE mp3 cord can be found they will both claim it as "theirs." Proper labeling ala "mp3 Red" and "mp3 Blue" can end wars, I tell you, Wars.


Though a simple thing, it makes me happy. I can't believe how organized my coupons are since I ditched my chicken scratch for real labels. Label size/fonts are adjustable which allows for even the teeny weeniest label creation. How many labels could you fit on the head of a pin? I don't know but I'm willing to TRY.


Easy Medicine cabinet organization for households with older children. Labeling stand up freezer bags (they're thicker) with labels by type is invaluable for making sure that treatment for what ails you is handy in one safe place. Great for travel since everything is already "bagged."

Some days I think the only things I have left to label are "Son," "Daughter," And "Spouse." Too much? 

*ETA Apologies for photo quality or lack thereof. Blogger appears to be having issues today and so far what shows it the unadjusted/uncropped images. Sorry!

Blogger's acting up again and I can't see these images. Dang, Blogger!

Kymberly Foster Seabolt said...

Sorry! It's not showing up in networked blogs or feeds either. Blogger must take Mondays off? :)

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I can't see the images either. Mine did that this morning and I went back in, removed the picture, and then reinserted it. Sigh.

Joanne said...

I can see the first picture now! I think Lisa might be right. Mine was all funky the other day and I had to delete and reinsert a few times.

I love my label maker too! Don't know what I'd do without it:)
P.S. FYI: I've tried to respond to some of the comments you've left on my blog and your email address will not go through.
Thanks!

I've had the chance to do some blog browsing tonight...and I really enjoy your writing! I'll stop by when I can...my lovely dial-up doesn't allow me to browse as often as I'd like! :) Thanks for stopping by!

OK I totally want to be you when I grow up! I have no "organizational" skills what so ever and can't seem to develop any!

I am "following" you now - guess I thought I was since I read you all the time!

YOU ARE BRILLIANT!!! I have a labeler and I LOVE it but I have not used it to the extent you have...until now. I'm going to have to make a trip out for more 'tape'. I especially love the color coding to prevent wars. On a side note, I label my Pampered Chef utensils when going to a potluck and have washed them in the dishwasher numerous times and you can still read it.

Thanking you for following and gladly following you back ;)!

Awesome images. I love your label maker!

Catie said...

I love it! Organizing is my favorite destresser!

My husband has one just like that and loves it just as much! I tease him about it. When we're labeling boxes, I scrawl something on a piece of paper and tape it on. He'll take the time to use his label maker. I have to admit it does look a lot better. We had a booth in an antique mall together once and he even priced his stuff with the Beloved Label Maker. Now, to me, that was taking things just a little too far. But only because I've priced a million things over the years and making a label takes too much time. For me. Thanks for stopping by the blog!

With that label marker, it would be easier to put our names on our personal effects like diaries or books, scrapbooks and even mobile chargers. It's even more personal and orderly than writing on them using a permanent marker. I'd like to have one of those so that I can clean up my room full of books.
