I seem to get a lot of address labels in the mail and like to put some in my purse. That way if I am somewhere that I need to hand write my address several times (i.e. at county fairs when you enter contest, etc.), I save my hand from cramping up by just using my labels!
We receive lots of solicitations that include sheets of address labels. Since we can't possibly use all that we receive, most would have to be trashed. Many of the labels have a small picture to the left of the address. By carefully cutting between the picture and address, we salvage strips of picture stickers that we give to our young grandchildren. Why pay for books of reward stickers, when we frequently receive them in the mail?
Because I get so many return address labels, I use them to stick on refrigerated and frozen items. I write the name of the food with a magic marker on the label, covering up the address. This way food isn't so apt to spoil since the contents are known.
Do you get too many return address labels in the mail like I do? When this happens I cut off the names (shred them of course) and then I have some pretty or cute little stickers for my envelopes and packages. I store them in a cute little box and when I need one, they are all in one place.
Address labels can be used a number of ways. Stick one on the bottom of a dish of food you're taking to a potluck. Carry some in your wallet for that unexpected sweepstakes promotion you see in a grocery store. Keep some in your vehicle's glovebox compartment, for that greeting card, etc., you forgot to mail. Anything to keep you from having to handwrite your name and address over and over.
When charities send them, cut them into strips, cut off the artwork, and put some in your wallet. They're great for use on small forms such as raffle or door prize tickets, rebate forms, or anywhere else that a tiny name and address is required. They'll also identify things you're lending, such as dishes and utensils for a pot luck dinner, or craft equipment.

Here are questions related to Other Uses For Address Labels.
Quite a while ago I purchased several boxes of white return address labels and can't return them to the store. The dimensions are 1/2" x 1 3/4" and can't use them in my printer. I tried setting my printer for the smallest type, but part of my address is cut off so I can't use them for address labels.
I tried selling them at a reduced price, but have had no luck. I would appreciate any suggestions of how these labels can be used because I really don't want to throw them away.
maybe you could print on some just your first and last name then the others your address and city and state abbrviated so its shorter then put the too together on your mail going out. since your printer will not serve them in such small print, might work. also print some pretty clip art some and use on the backs of mail going out to brighten some ones day or even use them as tape to close gifts up when wrapped.
