My Take on the Product
My wife was looking for something that would allow her to continue to organize our family's life and when I heard about this and was asked to review this I thought what could be better! In trying out this portable label maker I found that it was very easy to set up and use and that most of all, it was not as heavy as some of the ones that I have held in the past. 

I had never heard of "Dymo" before, but in looking online I found that many others have had very positive experiences with the company and their products so I have to say that I now have also joined their ranks. 
As I mentioned the product itself is quite easy to set up and to use. The only con (or at least the largest one in my eyes) was the keyboard on the product itself. It is not a full QWERTY keyboard and thus if you use this type of keyboard on a daily basis, you just have to retrain yourself for the way in which this is set up (it is not hard).

All-in-all this was a great product and my wife has already started to make strides towards further organization within our home! I can see that I am on my way towards a wild ride!
