Will try both ideas I think, one may work better on some
things than others and visa versa!!

I think they can and that's why clippets may work better.
I think I may try that route, though I do use bands for
some bags, having to replace now and again when they
snap.  I usually find they don't snap until you take them
off to get food out of the bag, then you find they are
the worse for wear. They work otherwise and I don't mind
replacing them now and again.

Hmm, hadn't thought of that, now, would the bands perish
in the freezer?
Just imagining all of the labels at the bottom of the
freezer and not a thing labelled LOLOL

I haven't done this yet but would probably go for the
elastic band and label method and tie it round the neck
of the bag.

Hi

your ideas are similar to mine by the sound of it.

I've done some more of the memory sticks and I've
started on the flash cards etc, I'm not labelling them
directly but I have a pile of small wallets that I got
from 7dayshop that hold four flash cards, each in
their own little pocket so a card with the label on can be
put in position for each, can do the same with the sd
cards. My sighted help is Mum and if she's ever not
around and something's needed urgently I think it'd
be a good idea to have the important bits labelled so if need be I
could find things.
How would you label say a bag of roast potatoes in the
freezer? you could just stick a label on it but once
the bag was used the label would be wasted so, how do you do it so you can re-use them?
I was actually thinking the other day about the
ammount of stuff we sometimes have to take out with us!!

Thanks

Well, Trace, not as many things as I wanted to, but
certainly have done all the jars so I don't have to
take lids off to find out what's inside. I've done
all the containers with cooking items and all of my spices, gravys etc. For most things I have used the label on
card method.  I also keep a label on the back of my
phone so that I can take a short bit of information
out with me if I need. I have found it's not too good to
take a long shopping list though as you can't stop
and start without hearing everything, but for a few items
(that you may forget) or if you need a code for
something while you're out, I find the label on phone
quite useful as long as I remember my pen as well!  I
am going to do most of my freezer stuff before
Christmas as we'll have quite a long spell without
sighted help during that time.  I also want to do
all the plugs in the house.  Most of them have
Braille at present, but you can't get much Braille on them so spend too much
time trying to work out what the abbreviation meant!
<Grins> Oh, I've also labelled a number of chargers
that I can't stand mixing up and having to remember,
though I have left those which sometimes have to
leave the house in Braille only in case I don't take
the pen. I have thought of labelling correspondence also and
think I would do more of this if I didn't have
regular sighted help.
I hope this is of help to you.

OK, what else have you labelled then? you might give
me some ideas.
I laminated a pile of cardboards to day, I can cut
them down and then put a label on them for some
things where it'd be difficult to put the label on
the item itself.

Yes, Trace, I agree, plugs are a "must" and are on
my list because I still haven't got them done! This
week looks possible though as it's almost at the
top of my "To Do" list!

Hi, thanks, not doing too bad at the moment, my
next job after doing the memory sticks are the
plugs, I have that many connected to the computer
that it'd be brilliant if I could get them all labelled so
that if I need to unplug something to move it
orwhatever I'll know which one's which, also, the
plug for the sky box so that when the box plays
sillies I'll know which plug to unplug. Trace with thanks

Hi Trace,

Nice to hear you've got a pen friend.
I hope you will like it.

You can just record a new lable over the old
lable just re-record it and it shell overwrite the lable.
Yes, your sockets are in that exact place let me
know if you need any more help and I'll do my
best to answer.
Best wishes, madleen

Hi

My penfriend arrived to day, our post comes so
late that I haven't really had a chance to play with it yet but i have labelled a memory stick, memory
sticks have actually bugged me for ages as
they're made in such a way that you can put a label on them but it has to be small, the small labels with the penfriend are
brilliant for this, I've got loads more memory
sticks so I'll be happy for the rest of the day
i think LOL How do you erase a recording if you want to re-use the label for something else? not really done with a memory stick but in some cases you can have the
label stuck on a piece of card and then attached
to a document with a paper clip or whatever and
you may want to re-use the label once you can bin the document.
I haven't bought any more labels yet but what do
you get in a pack of a or b? are the labels
differently sized like they are in the ones you get with the
machine?
Oh, and, where's the headphone socket? in the
flap with the usb connector? and the mic socket
although i haven't got a mic yet.
Trace who's off to label everything now
