If you’ve started 2022 with good intentions to declutter your home and streamline your storage system, a labelling machine is an essential bit of kit.
Whether you’re labelling storage drawers, tubs, boxes, jars, letters or food, sticking a label on your items helps you find what you need quickly and easily.
Popular with domestic goddesses and decluttering gurus such as Mrs Hinch and Marie Kondo, a labelling machine is also a welcome addition for those whose handwriting is as legible as the average GP.
Parents who are tired of their little ones’ losing belongings at nursery or school will also appreciate the opportunity to label their items in a bid to stop them going walkabouts.
Portable, light and easy-to-use, labelling machines come in a range of models, with options of black and white or colour labels.
Some even enable you to add pictures or emojis, meaning they are great for kids, especially those developing their literacy skills.
Others use embossing to make their mark, meaning you’ll need to buy a supply of tape and ribbon for this to work - although the vintage effect offered by such models is incredibly appealing.
Not sure where to begin? Fear not. We’ve done the donkey work and sifted through the labelling machines on offer to find the best for all budgets and tastes. Read on to begin organising your home for a simpler life today.
