Organisation with labels and Dymo LetraTag Labelmaker love and giveaway

July 2, 2012

You know that feeling of something really bugging you and you just have never got around to doing what needs to be done to fix it? Well this is me and the “cord draw”. Yes… we literally have a drawer full of cords. Cords for phones, new and old, iPads, kindle, camera and video camera… ohh and i think there is a cord for my hands-free set too.

This is what is currently looks like… a mess!

But I just have never got my arse into gear to make it a little more organised.

So you can imagine my excitement when I got given the Dymo LetraTag Labelmaker to try… Never fear… My cords are in order. They now each have a little label attached. Seriously… this was too easy to do! I just typed on my label maker the name, pick the font, pick the size and print. WALLAH!!! My cords have a label.

And you can just label just about anything with your Dymo Label Maker. This is my previous organisation of what was in my jars.

Yep… I used to cut paper from the paper and put it into the jars. Fancy right? Now look at my jars.

 

I am just getting started! This labelling can get quite addictive!

The Dymo LetraTag Labelmaker also lets you iron on labels. For a little extra you can buy the roll of tape to insert into the label maker to print out iron ons. Then just grab the iron, the labels and you will never have miss matching socks again. Nicole over at Planning With Kids shows you exactly how it works and how she has put unorganised socks together as organised.

This is just a fabulous little essential item for the home. Everyone loves labels. Everyone loves a little something to help with organisation.

Giveaway:

 

The Dymo LetraTag Labelmaker is valued at $59.95 and I have two to give away to The Parenting Files readers.

    I would start with the containers in my pantry as they are very unorganised.

  • michelle rivett July 3, 2012 at 5:43 am

    EVERYTHING in my son’s room, maybe that way he can ‘remember’ where everything goes when its time to pack up instead of shoving it all back into any hole that it fits into!

  • Kimmaxwell20@hotmail.com July 3, 2012 at 8:18 am

    I think I would drive everyone mad and label everything in our garage, would be a great excuse to clean up

    Most things in my home probably need labelling including me…..just in case I get lost.

  • Yvette Bowyer July 4, 2012 at 1:46 pm

    My kids brand new playroom and their toys. My husbands shed and his toys I mean tools. My pantry and my obsession with tupperware..

    Perhaps the bathroom and laundry cabinets aswell!

  • Rachel Thompson July 4, 2012 at 2:34 pm

    My pantry needs a label makeover! There are containers full of ‘stuff’ and I’m forever guessing what’s actually in these jars!

  • Leeanne Gooch July 4, 2012 at 3:12 pm

    i would label everything and get my son to help read it all back

  • Annelee July 4, 2012 at 5:53 pm

    I would make a label with my car registration expiry date and stick to the windscreen of my car. Because in their infinite wisdom, the SA government decided to abandon rego stickers to save money. Now people have no sticker to remind them when it is due for renewal and are getting fined for having out of date rego. Not happy SA government!

  • Kim Sauer July 4, 2012 at 6:32 pm

    I would label everything that wasn’t nailed down – let’s see them try and knock off my sticky tape dispenser and stapler then!

  • jenny learmond July 4, 2012 at 6:37 pm

    Nothing would be safe…I would be labelling shelves, drawers and containers whether it is in the kitchen (& pantry), bedrooms and bathrooms…I would become Mrs Super Organised Mum!…watch out kids, you may be ‘LABELLED’ too :)

  • Kazzie July 4, 2012 at 7:07 pm

  • Deb K July 14, 2012 at 8:34 pm

    Maybe I need to start with my son’s music gear!

  • Ash July 15, 2012 at 1:56 am

    I’ve ‘labelled’ my hubby useless several times in the past, but after forgetting our anniversary I’d like to make it official by having it consecrated on his forehead Dymo style! Not permanently of course; he has his moments….:)

    Love the idea of labelling the cords. We always seem to have too many lying around, until I actually need one and then I can’t find the right cord.

  • Cherry Adams July 16, 2012 at 12:40 am

    I have 4 kids and no Dymo LetraTag Labelmaker, why can’t I have 4 Dymo LetraTag Labelmakers and no kids! They would be so much more useful!

  • Elizabeth July 16, 2012 at 10:44 am

    I seem to have a multitude of boxes filled with ‘things’. I just need to be able to easily identify what those ‘things’ are!

  • Helen Gray July 16, 2012 at 4:04 pm
