Is your life messy? We’re not talking metaphorically messy, we’re talking can’t-find-the-envelopes messy.
Chances are, there’s one key organizing device you don’t have and need: a label maker. Yes, the thing you see in the office every now and then but never investigated. You didn’t think the labels on those supplies just magically appeared, did you?
Great for crafters, work-from-homers and everyone in between, a label maker is a game-changer. First, labels clearly mark what’s inside a bin, drawer or pouch. Second, they hold you accountable—there’s no guilt trip quite like the labeled one. Try putting a pencil in the box labeled “markers”—we dare you. Third, they look nice and neat.
Today, an incredibly popular portable Dymo label maker is on sale for just 20 bucks. It’s heralded for simplicity, precision and accuracy. With more than 7,000 positive reviews, it’s a go-to for Amazon shoppers looking for a simple and easy product that gets the job done fast.
You can choose from more than 200 symbols and 20 fonts to create the perfect label. And, you can hook it up to your PC or Mac to access a variety of fun fonts from the internet, too.
“More fun than you’d think a labeler can be,” says a five-star reviewer. “First of all it's quite portable and has a rechargeable battery. Second, it comes with a USB cable so you can attach it to your computer, download some free software and it becomes a real printer! No, you're not going to print out a letter to grandma, but you can create your label on your computer screen (which is easier than typing it directly into the labeler) and the coolest thing (at least with my MacBook Air) I can print a label out using any font that's on my computer!! You're not limited to the few that are native to the labeler. Want a label printed out in Ariel, Helvetica, Courier, Papyrus, Brush Script? You can do it! Very cool! I've been putting labels on everything!”
