DYMO LabelManager 420P | High Performance Portable Label Maker

I post a lot about home organization because I am a manic nut and everything has to have its place and preferably a labeled space. When I get the thought to do something, I go for it. We have a 1900 home and I recently made over my kitchen. Since I have more cabinet space, I am able to store my Tupperware in a more organized fashion that is pretty to look at and convenient when we are looking for something.

I used to label my containers with whatever I had on hand. Boy, what a pain that was! I had the chance to check out an amazing product that has truly helped improve my organizing ways not only in the kitchen, but for my office, travel needs, the kids playroom, hubby’s work needs and so much more.

The size of the 420P label maker is nice and fits in my hand nicely. The buttons are very clear to see.

Right out of the box, I charged the label maker.

Once it was charged (I left charging for about 2 hours while I did things around the house), I put the tape in and got started labeling!

There are so many options for font, size, styles, etc.

I started with cookies…. I typed it in, held the shift button down to create lowercase after the ‘C’.

Walah – my label was created! This label is the 3/4 size. You can get DYMO labels in 1/4”, 3/8”, 1/2” and 3/4” widths.

Since I have the 3/4 size labels, I am able to print using two lines. Super cool feature!

The back of the label has two pieces that you can easily pull the backing off to reveal the sticky.

Overall, I love the DYMO LabelManager 420P label maker! Who wouldn’t want to have their kitchen organized? The labeling doesn’t stop in the kitchen. I have labeled folders for media events, labeled my son’s school folders, and my office is nicely labeled and now organized. Right out of the box, the 420P was easy to set up, easy to use and is a nice size to store so it doesn’t take up much room. I love that the 420P has a rechargeable battery. This makes is so nice not to have to change out disposable batteries when it needs power and with the 420P, all you have to do is simply plug the entire device in to an outlet to charge. My bathroom containers are labeled & organized, the playroom toy bins are labeled and I have many other spaces that will be tackled next. No more unorganized pantry, vanity or office space!

    🙂 I have a different DYMO labelmaker but I couldn’t be happier with it also. It has been such a help in many ways!

  2. I am a former high school English teacher- and used the older school label makers for a while (no, not the wheel click kind) but a bigger one of the one that you have. They really are aawesome!
