Spices - I try to be a spice snob. I prefer to order my spices from Penzeys, savory spices, or independent places. If you order through Penzeys, a jar is about $6.00. A bag that is triple the amount is the same price but the bags are inconvenient and ugly. I bought a bunch of jars from Penzeys and from Hobby Lobby and pour all my spices in the jars and use my label maker. The labels stay on forever! All my spices are uniform when I look in the cabinet and it is easy to spot whatever I am needing
CAbinets - My teen daughter and Husband kept using the excuse they didn't put dishes up or wouldn't cook because they couldn't find everything or didn't know where everything went. I solved this problem by labeling the inside of every cabinet or drawer ( Baking items, bowls, silverware, food prep items, oven items, etc. ) Now when they ask where something is I yell where it is supposed to be (often times it isn't) and they know not to ask anymore. If it isn't where it goes then it isn't where it is supposed to be so find it !
Meal Prep - Every week I prepare approximately three meals in individual containers to grab for a quick lunch or breakfast. At the end of the week, I would notice several lunches still there. I asked my husband why he wasn't taking his lunches and he would say he didn't know what was in there or he didn't know if it was for something I may be cooking in the future (Excuses) . Now, when preparing the containers I print out exactly what is in each container so they can grab and go. Yes the tape is expensive but in reality it lasts at least two months and $20 for tape every two months is way cheaper than eating out every meal.
Well, I've only been using this thing for less than a month now.
Actually, if you must know, I'm still on the starter tape and the first set of batteries.
But I already love this little machine, folks.
Simple to use.
The quality of the label tape?
Far exceeded my expectations.
Pay no attention to those reviewers who gripe about the cost of the tape.
Wasted tape at the ends of the newly-printed label?
Nah, they look great with the pre-set end margins.
If you have to trim some off each end to get it to fit into a tight place, no big deal.
Hard to peel off the backing?
I have good enough luck with my pen-knife, just starting at one corner.
It works better for me than that built-in separator thinggy on the unit, at least until I can figure that thing out.
Now if some of you kind folks have figured out how to use that built-in thing and can translate the manufacturer's instructions into some words that the rest of us can easily understand, please add comments to this post in that regard.
Not so far for me.
I kept thinking about that.
I had read in a user-review that somebody got an electronics repairman to look at his PT-70 and apparently the service-man cleaned up the ends of the batteries and the internal machine contacts with the eraser that's on the end of a wooden pencil.
I kept thinking about that.
When I install batteries, if I can get to the sides of them, I'll rotate them and squeeze them in and rotate them some more to try to get the best contact possible.
To try to "clean off" any corrosion or dust or dirt or lacquer or whatever.
I do that when I put rechargeable batteries into their chargers too.
I was trained in electronics in The Military in the 1960s.
To "clean up" moving parts, just use them.
I'm not going to say that I've worn out a couple of pen-knives over the years scraping electrical contacts down to bare metal, but you probably know what I'm driving at.
I like this little Brother PT-70.
Oh, and if you've never seen one in person, you'll be glad to know that it's a nice size machine.
I was surprised and pleased at how big it is and how easy-to-use it is in terms of pushing the buttons and all that.
I have big fingers.
Without giving it too much thought, I'd call this machine coat-pocket-size.
Update - 22 April 2012
I bought this unit here at Amazon in October of 2011.
Six months ago.
It's just great.
It's fun to use.
Mine (the PT-70) has performed flawlessly for these six months.
Flawlessly in every respect.
Yes, including battery life.
I learned how to use that built-in tape separator thing on the unit and it actually works quite well.
It's quick and easy to use.
I now have three colors of label tape and you can switch cartridges so easily you won't believe it.
It's so quick and simple to pull one out and just stick another one in there.
No threading the tape through rollers or anything like that.
No loss of tape whatsoever, no loose ends of tape dangling out of cartridges.
Just a very neat and clean system.
I really cannot say enough good about this little machine.

No mistakes or misinformation that I can see.
