Sharpies make it easy for you to permanently leave your mark.
Sharpies in the Kitchen
Before you continue reading about the Uses for a sharpie there is a special announcement we would like to share with you. Catalogs.com has negotiated special medicare rates for our vibrant community of seniors. If you are over the age of 60, you can head over to our Seniors Health Section which is full of information about medicare. All you need is your zip code and a few minutes of your time to potentially save 100s of dollars on your medicare bills.
There are many uses for a sharpie in other rooms as well. Label the bins or baskets your children use to store playthings with many small pieces. This is especially helpful for children learning the letters of the alphabet and learning how to read. ‘Let’s put the blocks in the bin with the big B’ is a better guide for children than just ‘Get something to put these in.’ Gradually your child will learn to read the labels back to you. Helping to print new toy labels also gives them a good writing experience. Sharpie labels can also be used to provide permanent signs for older children: ‘When you feed the dog,’ ‘Locking the basement door,’ and ‘Do you have your key, lunch money and homework?’ are reminders you can take off the nag-list and help your child feel more self-sufficient. And because sharpies write on many surfaces, labeling jackets, boots and backpacks insures that what went to school comes home from school, with no it-looked-like-mine mixups. Grownups have those mixups, too. Use your sharpie to personalize any luggage that will ride an airport carousel. All you have to look for is your own little graphic or personalized tag.
General Labeling with Sharpies
Sharpies are ideal for labeling anything likely to be exposed to moisture or extreme dryness. Thus one of the major uses for a sharpie is marking boxes or other containers for moving or storage. Sharpie ink resists fading and smearing. Because sharpies now come in a variety of colors, color-coding boxes by room (blue for living room, green for the den) provides a quicker, smoother move for both moving-company employees and new homeowners. Boxes arrive in their right locations without endless repetitions of ‘where do you want this?’ and ‘upstairs, upstairs, oh wait, I can’t read what’s in this.’
The Fuse Box
A sharpie is also the ideal choice for jobs you only want to do once?which brings us to the fuse box. Often conducted in less-than-ideal circumstances, such as the sudden failure of the fridge, labeling the fuse box often deteriorates into long-distance yelling, ‘Is that it? Now? Well, what DID go off? What?’ Use a sharpie and the results will last.
