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.
Preview before printing with large LCD display: This my favorite feature as it will avoid wasting lables and will help you save money down the road.
You can format the text in a quick way: Bold, Italic, vertical and horizontal text

Water resistant label: It resited to hot coffee as well as cold milk spills.
