While traversing the wonderful world of Costco with my wife, we happened upon a label maker. Because it was aggressively priced and looked pretty awesome, and my wife is devoted to all things related to organization and cleanliness, she wanted to buy it. So we did.
For nearly three years it sat in its packaging. "One day we'll get around to using the label maker," she said. But as time passed on, it was never cracked open. Until it was, and let me tell you, that thing is pretty awesome.
There's something to be said about a concise, professional, small, glossy strip of difficult-to-remove paper that screams "I've got it together". Now that might sound silly, but I have to admit, even though we didn't use the darn thing for a long time, the second I saw those angular, crisp labels around the house, I didn't have a smidgen of buyer's remorse. Not a smidgen.
