Secrets of Success

My Labelmaker Is My Best Friend!



I use a label maker to keep everything organized; it's worked in my kitchen, my office, craft room, storage space, and bathroom. Just seeing the labels reminds me that everything has a correct place, and makes me want to keep things neat and tidy! It especially helps to keep food fresh.

More Information:

I use a label maker to label all of the shelves and containers in my pantry. I label all cereal and bread with a purchase date and label all leftovers with the name, date cooked, and a "toss date". I put numbers on fresh food in the order I buy it so I can use the oldest food first.

  • I also use my label maker all the time, but you have given me some new ideas in how to use mine. Thanks. emoticon - by ANYVAR54
  • I thought I was the only one. I even labelled my fridge to remind my family where things go. Doesn't always work, but it does help when they are looking for something. I simply tell the label..."you know on the bottom left where it says mustard and dressings." emoticon - by CAMMYJONES
