Label Maker

When I pull out my label maker I know that it means I have finally reached the last step of organizing a particular task. For me, this is probably the part I like the best. The reason is that it allows me to be creative with my labeling.

I really enjoy looking through Pinterest and Instagram because I get so much cleaning and organizing inspiration. There are so many ideas for how to label the things around the home and I think some are more practical than others. But in the end, I guess it’s just all about personal choice and preference.

When I was looking for labeling inspiration earlier in the year. I kept seeing the Cricut, it’s all over the internet and I nearly bought one but then decided not. Who knows I may change my mind and buy one eventually.

For now, I own two label makers to label my things and I really like them both. They serve me well and they label things clearly.

The Good Old Dymo Letra Tag Handheld Label Maker

I have had this label maker for years and I probably use it the most. The letters are very clear and it has 5 fonts, 8 box styles plus 2 line printing. I find this labeler easy to use because it is light and compact plus it is powered by batteries. I also use this label maker to label all of my son’s school things. Like his books, folders, and stationary equipment. I know he’s a big boy but I still love to label his things.

 Spice Jar Labels

This label maker is also great for labeling my spice jars. The jars are quite small so consequently, I had to make sure that the lettering was clear and I think that this label maker did the perfect job!

Labels For Files

I have labeled all my files using this label maker. I can easily adjust the size of the letters to suit what I need and I think that this is a winning feature.

Pantry Jar Labels

Earlier this year I wanted to use something a bit different for labeling my kitchen things. I was happy to keep the spice jars labeled with the Dymo handheld label maker but I was keen for a bit of a change for the jars in my pantry.

On Pinterest, I kept seeing pantry jars labeled using this Dymo organizer Xpress embosser and I was sold. I love the retro look, reminds me of when I was a kid. In Primary school, my friend Donna had these same embossed labels on all her belongings, she’ll never know how much label envy I had!!

Custom Made Vinyl Labels

Labels For Hand and Dish Soap Bottles

When we had our kitchen renovated I wanted everything to look clean and fresh with minimal clutter. (You can read about my kitchen organization here.) I was on the lookout for some pump bottles for my dishwashing liquid and hand soap. The online stores I looked at didn’t have any I was happy with. In the end, I found the perfect glass pump bottles at Ikea. I really like the silver nozzle and I think they look just right in the kitchen.

While I was in the process of looking for pump bottles online, I stumbled across an Australian company called Blissful Little Home. They sell all sorts of really lovely organization products and custom-made vinyl labels. Furthermore, the best part was that I was able to choose my own font and size from quite an extensive selection. So I went ahead and ordered the labels for my pump bottles and they turned out to look way better than I expected! It ended up costing me a fraction of the price of some of the options, I had been considering.

Vinegar and Oil Bottle Labels

I also ordered These really cute and super functional oil and vinegar bottles complete with the vinyl labels. I was determined to get rid of the ugly mismatched bottles in the pantry and I was really happy that I had found these ones. The bottles pour beautifully and they also don’t leak so this means I don’t get any sticky pantry shelves.

I thought I’d show you how I’ve labeled some of my things. While I am currently quite happy with my labels, who knows maybe I might be tempted to change them in the future. Because I am just constantly seeing so many beautiful labeling options.

  1. Oh wow I love that embosser that reminds me of my youth too! Very retro!

    Have you ever used or looked at cricuts? We have just started our own business and we use a cricut for personalised labels. Be warned though it’s a rabbit hole when you start researching! ?
