    My husband just bought me the one that is on sale at Staples; regularly $40 for $19.95. What do I do with it now? How can it make me more organized? Not sure where to start...thanks.

    Now I want to go to staples....

    I have a small ptouch that I have had for years. I find that when I start labeling it is easy to get carried away and start labeling everything. Shelves, folders, supply tubs in the cabinets.

    Oh, the joy of labeling. I like to label both containers and the space where they go.

    I use my PTouch for almost everything. I LOVE it!

    -Student book bins-I have the plastic ones from Really Good Stuff. The PTouch labels come off easily at the end of the year, and stay on all year.
    -Cabinets/cupboard in my classroom-I know a lot of teachers use cute accents or paper to label the outside of cupboards. I use my PTouch because it looks more clean and simple.
    -Student cubbies/mailboxes
    -Storage bins that hold craft materials

    That is just some of the stuff I use it for. :)

    Thanks. I'm still debating whether to keep it...It is the Brother PT-1290. $20. Just not sure I need it that much...
