I have recently achieved a lifelong dream - I am now the proud owner of a labelling machine!
This handheld categorising super-tool is fast becoming my weapon of choice in the war against disorganisation.
'Pass me a 5mm jump ring' Did I hear you cry? No problemo, not now I have labelled all my storage pots (white lettering on pink. Medium font).
There are just no end to its uses - in fact if Maisie Dog stayed still long enough I am sure she would also find herself labelled appropriately.
For instance, I recently 'acquired' this gorgeous spice rack from Bramble & Fox stock. It comprises of several glass jars with shutter blue lids, all neatly stored in a wire work rack. The style and colour is perfect for my kitchen, and it sure beats fumbling around in the back of the cupboard for a pot of Morrison's-own mixed herbs.
For one glorious hour on Sunday, I spent my time creating spicy labels (black lettering on clear. Small font), and transferring over the contents of my menagerie of pots and packets. Labelling heaven, and the heady heights of spice organisation achieved.
Now, as I sit back and admire my handiwork, I am aware my love of organisation might be called by some obsessive - naturally I prefer the term 'super organised'. Actually, I think I might just go and print myself a label...
