Houston! We have an announcement… Mommy has put down the Sharpie and has a new obsession.
It takes something pretty spectacular to rip a Sharpie out of my hot little hand so I’m pleased to tell you about Mabel’s Labels. After receiving my labels, I found myself labeling everything I could get my hands on! Which is not necessarily a bad thing considering my 9-year-old would forget his brain if it wasn’t attached (it’s the age or so I’m told). My 3-year-old simply doesn’t care about which jacket (unless it’s the Train Jacket) he brought to school and I have a toddler distracting me every 2 seconds… so I usually forget said jacket. Needless to say, the Lost and Found Bin is my friend. And now? I actually have fun labeling the contents of the Lost and Found Bin. No joke… if you love Sharpies (and really, who doesn’t) you will adore Mabel’s Labels.
This year is especially important because my oldest son has to wear a uniform to school. Well, not a true uniform but he has to wear clothing consisting of three specific colors. I can barely spot him out of a crowd of kids while he’s at school!
I used the Ultimate Back To School Combo Pack and went to town.
I labeled all his polo shirts, jackets, sweaters, sweater vests with the Tag Mates labels and shoes with the Shoe Labels… then I started labeling his hats, umbrella, beanies, etc. He doesn’t wear hats to school but he does take them to friends’ houses and to places where they can easily get lost.
Then I attacked the lunchbox and backpack with the Teeny Tags and the water bottle and school supplies with Skinny-Minis labels.
But oh no, I wasn’t done.
That would be one of the jackets that lives half the time in the Lost and Found Bin, the school lunchbox and a sippy cup that gets toted to playdates, grandma’s and beyond.
And that nifty little box in every picture? It’s the box that the Ultimate Back To School Combo comes in. It ever so neatly houses the unused labels– until I’m ready to attack the closet again. I keep my unused labels (in their designated box) in each of my son’s closets, on the top shelf, so I know exactly where they are (and so little hands can’t get to them). The Ultimate Back To School Combo Pack comes neatly packaged complete with labeled pages and a guide in the back explaining where each label is best suited.
I’ve Mommy Tested them already, too. Mabel’s Labels are UV resistant, dishwasher, microwave and laundry safe… and they have passed my test.
The Ultimate Back To School Combo includes:
- You can buy Mabel’s Labels at Mabel.ca
- Like Mabel’s Labels on Facebook
- Follow Mabel’s Labels on Twitter
- And look into what I’m going to do… School Fundraisers!
The only piece of advice I can give to Mabel’s Labels is, maybe rethink your tagline to say Labels for the stuff kids and their scatter-brained moms lose! instead of Labels for the stuff kids lose! Kidding… kind of.
