"I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Brother P-touch. I received a product samples to facilitate my review and promotional item as a thank you for participating."
Last month I made it my goal to get better organized for the holidays. Basically the real issue in my organizational skill lies hidden in cabinets, storage areas and the closets. I’ve gone from everything has a place to I can squeeze it in someplace – even if that isn’t where it belongs. Armed with my Brother P-Touch Label Maker I’ve been making a ton progress, but also discovered I was in a lot worse shape than I thought!
For the past three years my holiday décor has been a jumbled mess; Christmas mixed with Halloween, Easter spread about. You get the idea. Before we set out to decorate this year I took the time to sort each holiday into its own bin, and clearly labeled each one. This included my Christmas décor. This way when the time comes to pack it back up, I’m one step ahead!
With my Brother-P Touch labeling an organizing was that much easier than I thought and way more efficient than the sticky labels I was using. I could even get creative with my fonts and designs. More importantly though, I was able to type in what was in each box, print, and stick, without worry that the label will warp or peel in my warm attic or garage.
The only issue I had was realizing this is the one time of year I typically add even more clutter to the areas I was trying so hard to organize. For instance, all the kids Christmas gift had been stored in the garage, so I needed to get the wrapped and moved out of the way. Once I began wrapping it hit me, I had yet to purchase gift tags! As the overwhelmed feeling hit that I would never get organized, my husband kindly reminded me I had a label maker at my side. Well, duh! Why hadn’t I thought of that? As great as my Brother P-Touch is at clearly labeling leftovers, school supplies, storage container etc. Why would it not make a great gift tag maker?
I still have a lot of work to do getting my baby gear in order and working with my husband to get his tools under-control. But, using the Brother-P Touch over the past month has added a little fun into a task I was dreading and I love realizing all the potential beyond simple organizing it has. I can use it for scrap booking, labeling my daughters coat for school, tagging the cable cords because we never know what is plugged in where! And when the baby is born, I can label the bins on the changing table so my husband knows exactly where to find the q-tips, Vaseline etc. No excuses! ;)
Whether you're looking for a product to help with organizing in and outside the home, or a product that can multi-task helping with projects, adding flair to scrap books, and even labeling food products clearly for households where allergies come into play the Brother P-Touch Label Maker goes beyond its traditional tasks with fun fonts, designs, themes, pictographs and much more!
While My lack or organization is making getting the garage and attic to 100% a little more time consuming than I thought (you can see my mess here) I have a lot of faith that with my Brother P-Touch in-hand I'll be back next month sharing my clean and organized garage!
Don't forget! This year marks the 25th anniversary of Brother P-touch and they are celebrating with special deals and promotions which can be found at office super stores and other retail partners. Take advantage of these deals and get organized for less just in time for the big holiday cleanup!
