"I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Brother P-touch. I received product samples to facilitate my review and promotional item as a thank you for participating."
I often find myself wishing I was much more organized. And I one point I truly was. Everything had its place and it drove me up a wall if anyone ruined my “system.” The older my kids got, however, the less organized everything seemed to become until I got to the point where it simply didn’t matter that much to me anymore. With baby #5 now on his way, all I want is to again get organized. I had let things get so far out of control it seemed impossible and as much as I want the organization, the motivation simply isn’t there.
A few months ago I was introduced to the Brother P-Touch Label Maker with the hope in my mind that this simple gadget would help steer me in the right direction. And it really has already had a huge impact in my life. Although, it doesn’t sort and organize my mess for me, it does offer me a simple solution to my labeling needs.
With the holidays over and my décor, finally, organized, labeled and neatly tucked away in my attic I’ve been able to focus on organizing my baby supplies and clothing. I have hoards of baby clothes that I stored in bags and bins without any kind of system. There are boys and girls clothes of all sizes and for all seasons just tossed together. With my label maker by my side I have been able to wash and sift through the clothes, labeling as I went.
And since I will keep baby in my room for the first month before he goes into his nursery, I purchased a set of plastic drawers for my room, for convenience. I’ve labeled the drawers and sorted selections into onsies, pj’s, blankets etc.
We aren’t anywhere near done with the nursery, but I’ve also purchased a few baskets and such for the changing table which I’ve also began labeling (I know this will be helpful to my husband.) While I'm usually pretty good at keeping track of where everything is and goes, I’ve found outwardly labeling has made it easier for my children and husband to recognize everything has its place and now nobody can tell me they don’t know where it goes!
From there I began organizing my cabinets, making a specific cabinet available for just the baby’s supplies: bottles, formula, baby foods, cereals etc. I’ve labeled the shelves in sections, again making it easier for me to keep on top of and making it easier to receive help from my family. Now they’ll know right where to go for a bottle, nipple, pacifier or whatever baby is in need of.
Don’t forget in honor of the Brother P-Touch 25th Anniversary, Brother P-touch will have special promotions and deals at office super stores and other retailers. Make this year your most organized yet, I hope to, with the Brother P-Touch PT H-100 Label Maker!
