DYMO Label Maker Review and Giveaway


I try really hard to be organized now that I am a busy mom and a blogger. I have so much stuff that I need to keep in some kind of order. I have a file box for all my important documents that I bought when I was pregnant with Noah to keep track of all my doctors stuff, Noah’s doctor stuff and of course important documents that we have such as birth certificates. I have noticed throughout the years the little paper tabs they provided have fallen out, became lost and now it is a huge mess. I could no longer look at the tabs and find what I was looking for. I had to start going through files. I didn’t like that because that is how things get lost or misplaced.

I thought I would buy a label maker, you know one of those old ones that you have to literally squeeze until your hand hurt to sometimes punch out the letters. I didn’t really use that one much because it was so unreliable and took a long time. I usually had to reuse it a few times to get what I wanted the label to say. As a scrapbooker I have a ton of stuff that needs to be organized and not thrown all together because a lot of it is delicate and could rip easily. So, when I had the opportunity to try out the DYMO Label Manager 260P I was really excited.


Here are some of the cool features of the LabelManager 260P
• Prints professional quality labels on 1/4”, 3/8” and 1/2” easy-peel split-back DYMO D1 labels

• Includes separate set of keys for numbers, allowing for faster typing

• Features quick access buttons for punctuation and symbols

• Allows user to customize labels and add emphasis with three fonts, six font sizes, seven text styles, boxes and underlining

• Stores up to nine labels and is capable of inserting saved text

• Prints up to 10 copies of one label

• Sleek, compact and lightweight design, allowing for fast, uninterrupted labeling whether in the office or on-the-go

I love how easy it is to use. You just load the cartridge and you are good to go. I did have a slight problem with loading the cartridge but I figured it out quickly. I love that you are able to type out the labels on the keyboard. Since, I spend a lot of time typing I am able to label with accuracy and ease. My hand doesn’t hurt from squeezing out labels and hoping they do come out readable. You can even make different font sized labels. Great for people like my mom who has to wear reading glasses. It is also rechargeable! No more buying batteries or having to be restrained by the length of a cord. Just charge it and you are all ready to label your heart out. My scrapbook stuff is really starting to look organized.


The first label I made was of my blogs url. I stuck that on my label maker. Yes I am a dork that labels her label maker. Noah really enjoys the label maker too or should I say the labels. He thinks that they are stickers and I made a few practice labels right after I received it and he stuck them to himself. He is always asking me for stickers when he sees the label maker. I hid it because it is so easy my now 4 year old could use it. I am glad he wants to be organized but there would be labels full of random letters stuck all over the house. I have taught him that stickers do not go on walls, doors and windows so I think those would be safe!

  1. i have a laundry tip I use: First, organize laundry hampers into darks, lights and delicates, Before leaving for work, put a load in the washer, As soon as you get home, transfer wet clothes to the dryer, After the kids are in bed, fold the laundry while doing something fun, like watching TV or chatting with your spouse about your days.

  2. i follow your blog.

  3. follow on twitter and tweeted.

  4. I literally operate from one "command center" calendar in our kitchen and set tons of reminder alarms on my cell phone.

  5. When you get the mail deal with it right then. Trash the trash, put bills in their place (I write them on my calendar), etc. It doesn't take long but then it's done!

  6. with my laundry, i have a basket that is the perfect size for my washer to be full. so I have enough to sort my laundry and when it gets full my kids load it lol

    for medicines i have a box for emergency meds, one for daily and then the extra things .. it keeps the med cabinet clean lookign and easy to get to the things you need

  7. To organize myself for tax time, I have a binder that contains clear pockets that are labeled with titles that pertain to tax receipts (donations, income, medical, other taxes, etc). Then as I file what I get all year long & come tax time, I don't have to hunt for documentation.

    Thanks for the giveaway!
