What is your favorite Xyron product?
I’ve only tried a few but the rose gold Creative Station was so easy to use. I made some fabulous labels for my spices. This type of pantry organization is an easy way to start and you feel so accomplished after it’s all done. I also really loved the Mini Create-A-Sticker.
What did you like most about using the Creative Station?
I loved how easy it was. At first, I didn’t know what to expect, having never used a sticker maker of any kind. I never had an issue with it and the items came out easy and beautiful every time.
What is the one thing that you think everyone needs when they start organizing their home?
A plan. It’s not about the organizational products in the beginning as much as it is about prioritizing your spaces and knowing what you need. Just take it one space at a time.
What is the one organizing tool you can't live without?
That’s a tough one. Maybe a drawer divider. They can easily create structure in a drawer so that you have a place to put everything. It’s actually a simple fix with huge results. I also really love turntables!
What are you going to make with Xyron next?
I’m not sure what I’m going to make, but my kids have already started making stickers for their water bottles. They love drawing characters and we have quite a few custom stickers now! There’s just something so fun about making things sticky! ;)
