DYMO® LabelManager® 160: Helps Mom Get organized


Labels with DYMO LabelManager

I run 2 businesses: My blogs and my home! To keep my sanity in those business and keep myself on top of things, I organize everything! Everything or most is scheduled, organized into folders, labled!  I used to buy those label pad and write everything by hand. It is too long and sometimes the handwriting disappears . Then I switched to Printer Labels. These are good for large offices when they have too many labels to print but it is not convenient for a home business or for the home when you have to print one or 2 labels at a time. Besides when you need the label in the kitchen to organize your pantry, you don’t want to go to your computer, write it down and then print it : this is too long!

When I got the opportunity to review the  DYMO® LabelManager® 160 Hand held Label Maker, I was excited! With the summer camp season around the corner, it will help me organize all these kids personal items.

Dimensions: 9.9 x 6.6 x 2.6 inches ; 1.2 pounds. It is perfect as it can be stored in one of your kitchen cupboards easitly. So you will have it on hand. Your tween can help you with the labeling. My son had fun labeling all his summer camp items. Usually it took him ages to write down 5 labels! Now he is excited to do.

Requires batteries: 6 AAA

Computer-style keyboard for easy typing: It is easy to write down. The keys are small so someone with large fingers can use it easily.It has a QWERTY keybord which makes it easier for you to write. Other hand lableers use the ABC keybord and it is a waste of time when you are used to a computer.

  1. Almost every country on Earth has the internet,
    which means that a company’s marketing efforts can be seen on a global scale.
    There is nothing more annoying than ringing up a company to speak to an advisor
    who then puts you on hold whilst dealing with your query, most people
    just don’t have the time to ring up and be put on hold.

    With Google having such a strong influence on how consumers research and shop for
    products on the internet, local businesses and online
    entrepreneurs should adhere to what Google advises us
    to follow in regards to high rankings in the search engines.
    Social media is one of the superior platforms to increase your trade.
    But I think parents should be held more accountable and
    than I think this would alleviate some of the children on the computer without their parents consent.

    It provides an impressive range of functionality including internet access and a QWERTY
    keyboard as well as social media integration of applications in conjunction with the ability to make free phone
    calls. Once you have reached a critical mass it
    may be possible to just let it roll and let your followers
    do the promotion for you, but most of the time you will still need to at least display your social media profiles on your website,
    and encourage people to follow, like or subscribe to your blog posts.
    While planning a holiday, choosing the right kind of accommodation is of utmost importance.
    When a woman cheats she often feels an overwhelming guilt for destroying all of those
    beautiful images of marriage that she had.
    Examining changes on the sentiment around your brand caused by Social Media
    can also be a helpful measure of the value of social media.

  2. Use large freezer bags to keep parts of toys together (i.e. Mr Potato Head + all his parts in one bag).

  3. Best tip to keep your house organized on a budget is to cleanup as you go along – fold clothing rather than leave them on floor, put things in their place, put like products together, don’t clutter up your house. Simple tasks can make your place look more organized than all those organizing products if you’re not tidy to begin with.

  4. Do a spring cleaning every year and discard or donate clothes or other items you have not used in the last year.

  5. Purge your home of everything you haven’t used in the last 2 years…and then sell these items by holding a garage sale. Costs nothing and will actually make you money 🙂

  6. Just keep it simple and reuse items that you may have in your house already like gift boxes for organizing and storing.

  7. Rubbermaid containers are great to keep thing organized. And I love going to garage sale/markets to found some bargains.

  8. i have designated drawers or bin for different things and if we use anything it goes back to the same place we took it out of. keeps everything free of clutter.

  9. I try to keep it simple by getting rid of the staff I don’t need. As for the keeping on a budget, I try to reuse and re-purpose everything I can ( like jars, crates from fruits etc.) and also visiting the nearest thrift store on weekly basis 🙂

  10. The best way to keep on budget is make a menu. I find when I have a menu and stick to it, I only buy things I need at the grocery store.

  11. Seriously the most important thing to me is. Put everything away or back in it’s place. Then you know what you have and do not spend money replacing items you already own.

  12. we actually will have a smorg of left overs one night, it’s amazing what would get thrown out, i have also used left overs in other recipes and frozen them .

  13. heather holmberg

    my best tip is to not waste food ! I have a list on my fridge and i write down what left overs are going in the fridge and the date … i also do the same for whats in the freezer.
    every garbage day i was sick of throwing away containers of food, hidden behind the pickle jar or the jug of juice .. now every time i open the fridge i see the list and can plan my meals around it

  14. Clear plastic over-the-door or on-a-hanger shoe organizers are great for storing odd shaped objects, e.g. fashion accessories. (The Dymo LabelManager would be handy here!)

  15. LOVE my label maker – critial tool as a professional organizer and a mom. We also us it to label camp stuff – shampoos and such make it home when it has their name on it!

    Thanks for the tips and review.


  16. My best tip is buying clear storage box and sort things in different categories and put them in boxes. Label them and group them in different area for easy finding

  17. Buying refill products, save me alot of $ and are better for the enviroment, Also Good old vinegar/water/Lemon Work great on all surfaces 🙂

  18. To keep organized, clean up before I go to bed. Helps make the next day easier.
    As for budgetting, shop sales. It makes for tons of variety.

    FYI, not sure if it’s me but the commentluv portion of the comments isn’t working.
    Regards, Sarah

  19. Storage solutions on the cheap? Dollar stores are great for baskets and clear containers to place all your small incedentals in.

  20. Look for storage solutions at the dollar store. There are a variety of storage baskets, containers all for a buck or two!
