A label maker is one of those things which I never knew I needed until I got one. Because, really, how hard is it to just, you know, write out a label? But the thing is, it’s not about writing being hard; in my case, it’s about my writing being completely illegible.
Now that I have one, I use it for everything. So do my kids. And my husband’s workshop is a marvel of modern organization, with everything meticulously labeled so that I can feel extra-special stupid when I can’t find the measuring tape.
Anyway! If you’re wanting one of those handy little label printers, check out this Brother PT-1010 handheld label printers from Buy.com. It’s currently just $19.09 with free shipping. (For reference, the same model is currently $41.49 at Amazon.) I promise you’ll find yourself using it for all sorts of things.
Also? One of these would make a rockin’ end-of-year teacher gift for a teacher you really love. (Maybe go in on one together with a friend or three, if you really want to save—your recipient will find it an extravagant gift no matter how many names are on the card.)
Also, I am completely amused that the item states “Limit (10) per customer.” Because I really, really wanted 11.
