Ok, well, my birthday is technically a few weeks away, but my mother bought me an early b-day gift while she was here for Christmas.
I got a labeler machine (or whatever you call those things).
It all started with organization. I began using my old coffee containers to hold basic education materials, such as: scissors, washable markers, glue sticks, etc. Yet all my old coffee containers were exactly the same color/shape/size. So here I was, flipping open container after container, just trying to find the kids' safety scissors. Ugh.
Solution: Label Maker!
My mother had also recently got bitten by the organizational bug. She had purchased a Label Maker for herself and loved it! She offered and I jumped at it!
It took me a few days to get the house back in order, but now I have begun to tackle some of my organizational projects with my new Label Maker. Here are the afore mentioned red containers, all neatly stacked and labeled and SO MUCH easier to practically use!!
