DYMO LetraTag For Fathers Day Makes A Great Gift (And Keeps Mom Happy Too)Stamford, Conn, 21/05/2003
The LetraTag from DYMO is a portable and easy to use handheld electronic
labelmaker that Dad can use in the garage, home, workshop or just about
anywhere. Tapes come in paper, plastic, metallic and even iron-on fabric
for any type of organizing need. And it's a great gift at the right price,
retailing for around $20 at national chains like Wal-Mart, Target, Kmart
It's a gift that'll make Dad happy and Mom even happier when he uses it to
organize his areas. Can you imagine the fishing tackle, golf clubs, CD
collection and his other hobbies neatly arranged and organized?
Get Dad started in the right direction by giving him some easy organizing
pointers. The following tips and tricks can help him see results in
First, start with a plan and stick to it. What's the most cluttered
area of the garage or workshop? Where are the "problem" piles?
Pick an area to clear and don't move on until it's completed. Seeing
results quickly will keep the momentum going. Wouldn't he be happy to
find all his tackle when the big one's are biting?
Make a "Go" and a "Stay" pile. If he's like most Dads, the "Go" pile
will be small. Help him make the tough decision of trashing that half
empty paint can, old tires or worn out golf shoes
Go to a discount store and get some inexpensive racks or shelves to
place items on and plastic storage boxes to put stuff in. Clearly
label these so that it's easy to find where things belong, especially
when it's time to return them.
Use different colored label to distinguish categories of items, like
gardening items, tools and sports equipment
Grab some plastic sandwich bags or an inexpensive tackle box and hit
the tool area. Identify the small items, like nails, screws, glue and
others that need to stay. Use the LetraTag labelmaker to clearly label
the box or bags to easily find what you need
Other labels can be put on light switches, fuse boxes, tools,
gardening pots, plant tags, storage boxes and much more.
Here's another idea. Why not get a head start and begin to organize the garage
for him? It'll really get him in the organizing mood when he sees how easy
it is and how good it looks.
The LetraTag makes a great Father's day gift. It's also perfect for any other
day of the year and the whole family can use it too. Information on the
