Why You Need a Label Maker in Your Life
Labeling is great for organization, but it can also be perfect for throwing parties and for education. With different color labels, options on some of the fancier printers, and designs, you can have a lot of fun with them.
These 5 creative label maker ideas are perfect to get you started. Feel free to expand on these and go crazy with your new best friend.
1. Cheese Party
Throwing a fancy wine and cheese party can be a lot of fun, but you don’t want to have to hang around the cheese all night, pointing people to what cheeses are where.
Use a label maker and toothpicks to easily identify each type of cheese. If you want to go further you can even put tasting notes and what type of wine goes best with each. This allows you to be the perfect host.
2. Cleaning Supplies
If your family has a tough time remembering which cleaning bottles to use for different cleanups and you don’t want to have to tackle every mess, labels are a great way to remind people. If you make your own cleaning products, labels are a must.
3. House Plants
Are you trying to develop a green thumb? It can be a bit daunting to start growing plants as they all require different levels of sun and water. Use a label maker and attach the labels to pots to remind you and others of which pot contains what and how to care for them.
You can use this for your outside garden too while waiting for vegetables and herbs to grow.
4. Dinner Guests
If you have a formal dinner that you’re planning, either at home or at an event like a wedding, label makers will make it easy for your guests to find where they need to sit. It’s a quick and affordable way to label the seats without having to spend a lot of time and money with stationery and printers.
5. Learn a Language
Learning a second language is very rewarding but it can be tough. If you’re tackling a new language or have children that are taking Spanish or a similar class in school, your label maker can help deliver excellent results.
Label random objects in your home with the word for that object in the other language. Just remember that if you label your fruits and vegetables, take them off before eating them.
It’s okay to love your label maker. Once people see how much they can improve your life, they’re going to want to learn all your secrets and get their own. Projects that you can do yourself are rewarding and a label maker goes great with most of them.
