My New Favorite Toy


I believe in the power of suggestion. I believe if you go around smiling, soon you will be happy. I believe that if you buy yourself cute exercise clothes, you will exercise. So, when I read that one of the best tools for organizing is a labeler, I didn’t even hesitate. I knew I wanted one.

Sticky Rice

I was right. I love this thing. It is useful everywhere! Right now it is at school and I am busy putting professional looking labels on my folders and binders. They are so pretty, sometimes I just sit and gaze at them. It calms me. It is my little island of order in the chaos that is middle school.

When I get everything organized (and I will, because I have a labeler, after all), I’ll post pictures. You will be green with envy!

    Oh to be organized! The beauty in “neat & tidy” has escaped me thus far, but I have hope that someday I too will acquire a label maker and then… perhaps…

    I love toys, too. One of my sons bought me a “turbo sealer” for xmas, and you can bet that I’ve been turbo sealing up cheeses, meats, etc…

    Ooooh, cool! Um, when you are done organizing your stuff, um, would you come out here and have a go at the chaos of my home? Please? :-)

    I am an organization freak. Not to say I keep things organized, but I love things that I think will help me along. I remember being in the third grade, no kidding, and wanting one of those old style (now pretty gaudy) label makers…so be careful where you leave that thing. Though, I wouldn’t have stolen one. I also wanted a lamination machine…but really, what was I going to laminate at that age?

    Ooooo I love labelers. Sure I can clean out and reorganize a room but then if I get LABELs on all those things….ohohhhhh it just pulls it all so much more together and professional! …. and makes is so my husband doesn’t come right in an screw it up. ;)
