I have one and I LABEL TOO MUCH! LOL But I go in phases, its like a new toy that you play with constantly then it gets 'boring' but when you do pull it out to use it, you just get re-inspired and go label crazy again lol - well ok, thats how "I" feel about it. After having worked in an office environment forever Im used to organizing with it so I felt naked w/o one :lol:
I too have the DYMO Letra Tag made by Esselte. Brother's are nice but I think are over priced for the job that they do. The one I have just does small labels not big mailing/shipping ones.
I have a labeler as well( The little P-touch thingee..) I have to have one to keep all of my cookie cutters organized. And I am like Missy-I label everything!!! It is addicting! I personally blame Martha Stewart and her totally unobtainable immaculately organized pantry!
Brother P-Touch 65 here. Couldn't love it more if it were chocolate. Use it practically daily. Cost me around 30 bucks, and the re-fill rolls are about 10, but they last forever. The only drawback is that it takes 6 AA batteries and has NO option for an AC Adapter.
Amy, I saw in your blog that you're concerned about batteries. Well, I've had my Dymo Letra Tag for over a year and labeled tons of things, from files to shelves to plastic shoe boxes and I haven't needed to replace the batteries yet. Of course I don't know exactly how long they'll last but thought you might like to know they seem to last a pretty long time.
Love love love the dymo letra tag -- keep an eye out at Target because they often are on clearance as the new models come out -- same for the label tapes for it. You can also use a 40% coupon and get it at Michael's.
