You might remember last year I wrote a feature on Brother and how to implement one of their labellers in your daily life, and today I’m pretty excited to collaborate with them again to bring you four new ways to use a labellers as a personal organizer and try and be creative with it in the meanwhile!
But, really, don’t know if it’s just me, but as soon as I started brainstorming some ideas for this post, I couldn’t really stop! There are just so many things in life that could need labels on, isn’t it?!
At your side
This year Brother is releasing a new “lifestyle” labeller, perfect for any day-to-day uses, claiming to be wanting to stand beside women in their daily tasks and routines. And I’m so happy they finally have some pastel options with their new PT-H100LB model, because they are all so extremely adorable!
These labellers are especially thought to get in your help when it comes to organize and keep order in your own home, to categorize food, fashion, beauty and lifestyle products in general and… they also have fabric tapes you could use to customize your own sewing creations or your toddler clothes!
Their tapes are made to last and are available in different colours, to have fun and be creative. This new release has a cool “Deco Mode” with pre-installed designs and cute frames to make your labelling even more fun!
As I said, I could have found an endless amount of ways to put my brand new baby blue labeller into good use (think creating little flags with toothpicks to put on top of cupcakes, or labels for your home-baked biscuit tins or to create categories for your beauty storage…) but I’ll limit myself to only show you four creative ideas to transform a Brother labeller into your own personal organizer!
So, if you’re curious, please read on…
Create Your Own Recipe Journal
I have this vivid memory of child-me and my mum in the kitchen, having fun with cake batter and a few recipes from her hand-crafted recipe journal. She always used to say she will pass it on whenever me and my sister will have our own places, to have her recipes always handy!
I’ve always wanted to start my own recipe journal too, and what better occasion to get started than a shiny new labellers to add little notes and fun details to what once was a plain notebook and now is turning into a beautiful custom recipe holder!
I’ve printed a few pictures of my recipes and glued them to their pages to remember what the results look like, and then started writing my very own recipes by hand (because that’s the only way possible!!), taking my time to compile my journal and promising to myself I’ll keep coming back to add more and more! I had so much fun adding little comments with my Brother labeller, or use it to create a fun rating system with its symbols function!
Customize Your Parties
Let’s say you’re throwing a party, whether it’s a grown-up party or something fun for your children and their little friends – you could use your labeller to add little flags with names to the paper straws, to help the guests remember where they left their glass (especially if you’re using actual dishware, you’ll love this little trick that will avoid you to wash an endless number of forgotten glasses)!
Maybe it could be a fun idea to also add a little something to someone’s breakfast in bed or romantic dinner for two! 😉
Organize Your Notes
I don’t know about you, but although my phone has the biggest amount of list-making apps installed, I always find myself grabbing the random piece of paper instead to write down my notes and impromptu ideas whether I’m at home or on-the-go. That’s probably the reason why I love notebooks so much (or not?).
I’ve been using my labeller as an actual personal organizer to create sections in my notebook: with short texts like ‘to-do’ or ‘don’t forget’ or ‘business-related’ quickly printed under my eyes, I can stick random pieces of paper where I’ve written down my notes in a hurry and organize them in my notebook of choice!
I also do love to add pictures in my planners, and of course couldn’t resist adding some more labels with cute little notes and comments!
Organize Your Tech
Sure, the previous three ideas were fun, cute and useful, but this last one is… smart!
I bet you’ve all at least once experienced the drama of looking for a cable to charge one of your (insert infinite number) of mobile devices and cursing at yourself for not being able to find that Kindle charger you are sure you remember how it looked like! Or the annoying situation when your cables all look the same but you have to spend 15 minutes to actually find the one.
The solution is so simple! Use a labeller to print your mobile devices names and stick them to their corrispondent cables, so that next time you’ll be instantly able to identify the one you’re looking for in the pile! Simple, right? Still I don’t know how I haven’t thought about it before!
Hopefully by now I’ve convinced you you’re desperately needing
a labeller as a personal organizer in your life, ah!
Would love to know if you use labels to organize your home/life/business and how! x
