Is it worthwhile to use a label maker when doing your filing? Patricia Burroughs thinks so! Here's what she posted to the Getting Things Done Yahoo group, reprinted with her permission.
For me it has changed my life. That may sound silly, but I have horrible handwriting, just horrible. And for some reason when I'm "organizing" I want things to look neat (even though I'm not a neat person). All my previous attempts at filing had scribbled/scrawled/ugly files.[Photo of one of my own label makers; yes, I've used the label maker to create a reminder that I put on the thing itself.]
Once I used the P-touch I found that going into my files felt calming. It looks like it's organized and orderly, and creating new files and tucking them into place always feels very satisfying.
So count me in the "believer" column!
