I hope all of your are running to get one of your most prized possessions, your LABEL MAKER… wave it in front of your computer screen! Look at those beauties!
Label Makers work wonders in the kitchen too! Paired up with jars of all sizes, our pantries become neat and tidy!
My pantry was always a big mess of opened boxes. I was forever organizing and reorganizing it! I would find 3 boxes of cornmeal, or an empty box of navy beans… I just could not see what I had available.
So I started to put my dry goods in labeled jars. They look so pretty and neat when I open the pantry door… and they stay nice and fresh too! Now, I can readily see that I need more popcorn and rice on the next trip to the grocer’s.
Like the plastic containers, I looked for them on sale… accumulating a couple at a time.
Here are some other creative ways to use your label maker…
~ label lunch meat containers with the expiration dates
~make address and shipping labels
~make nameplates for books, tapes, rakes, CD’s, power tools, etc. you lend to others
~When taking containers to pot luck dinners, school events, etc. label them in case you forget to pick them up. It will be easier for them to make their way back to you.
~label the back of pictures with names, dates and places. We can get forgetful over the years.
~When using a wall as a growth chart, use the label to record the date and height
~ label disposable drink glasses when having a party
~ make labels on index cards to make flash cards for children
~ make labels for prescription bottles… easier to read
