I recently picked up a second hand Dymo Rhino 4200 label maker and 
purchased a bunch of different size labels. The whole thing wasn't 
cheap, maybe setting me back $150 at the end.

I have a LOT of things labelled in my shop, most were done with a 
sharpie on masking tape and have since completely faded to unreadable 
because of UV light from a nearby window. This includes hundreds of 
small parts drawers, etc.

Even though everything is labelled in my shop, because of my bad 
penmanship it looks like I'm the John Nash character in A Beautiful Mind 
when people visit.

So for me the dymo makes it look like I'm not losing my marbles and 
hoarding random electronics. It also paid for itself when came time to 
organize the spice drawer, saving my marriage.

Note that this Dymo does nothing to check for "authentic" labels, and 
offbrand ones are available on amazon and it also works with the cheaper 
priced non-industrial ones.
