Good Thursday morning to you all!  One day closer to the weekend!  Woo-hoo!  What awesome plans do you and yours have going on this weekend?  If you don’t already have one of these:


or something like it, I would say that it should go on your “to-do” list for the weekend!  Let me just tell you the awesomeness that is contained in this little machine!  It goes beyond awesome and into the ‘crazy rad’ category!  I was given this labeler as a gift from a sweet friend!  And it has rocked my world.  I have literally gone CRAZY {my kids own words} with making labels.  I love this machine because it does super cute labels with choices of many different fonts, sizes, borders {like holiday borders and probably anything you could think of}, and all kinds of other features.  I have never had so much to choose from in a labeler and I still have a lot to learn and discover.

So, ever since this baby came into my life, things have been different.  I have began to label ALL things {almost}.  My kids have all of their folders for school labeled, they have their tabs in their binders labeled by subject, their comp notebooks {my HS junior refuses to let me label his stuff…but I will not cease}….I have made interior drawer labels for the little kids to know what goes in their drawers and keep the drawers organized.  This is another small way to get the kids involved in keeping things in their proper place.  It teaches responsibility and life skills that they will carry throughout their lives.

Labels have been put on all of my homemade cleaning solutions, and have replaced the scrap of tape and black marker that was used prior.  I feel super fancy having done this!  My coupon folder has real labels now, that will last foreva!  Oh, and my garage bins have now been labeled with bordered holiday labels to denote what is in each bin.  Are you seeing where I am going here?  I plan on doing so much more but let me just say…going label crazy is actually really good!  It takes your organization up a notch and makes everything uniform.  Don’t forget that everyone can now see exactly what is where and the constant “mom/honey where is…?” might even slow down a bit {one can hope}!

Check out Amazon for the best price you can find.  You might even find a sale at a local office supply store. AND, it’s right in time for season change, to label clothing that is being stored away until next summer!

I’m telling you, you’re gonna go label crazy too!  Try making it super fun by using a clear tape and putting some washi tape behind it for a fun and creative look.  You can even use a little scrapbook paper to make it oober cute and fun!  That’s what i love…when organizing and fun collide!

Have a great weekend! Show us your projects with your label makers! We can’t wait to see!

Until next time,
