It's that time of year again. As hard as I try to ignore all of the advertising, in store promotion and my calendar, there's no denying that the school year is looming around the corner. With a new school year comes new school stuff. Stuff that needs to find its way home for the rest of the year.
I'd first assumed that we'd outgrow name labels when the kids hit the age where they can recognize their own belongings. Apparently not. As they get older, things get shared. Lots. Things like clothes with best friends. Things like geometry sets. Things like snack containers. Enter my friend Mabel!
We're going to need some Skinny Minis™ by Mabel's Labels. These dishwasher / microwave safe and UV resistant labels have outlasted some of our lunch and snack containers. They're fabulous for stationery supplies and especially for food containers.
Tag-mates™ are also on our list. They're washer / dryer safe and best of all stick tight to clothing labels without ironing. Some of the clothes are worn and faded, but the labels are still going strong!
Growing feet mean new shoes and boots too, which means new shoe labels are in order. Some Teeny Tags™ will round things out nicely, to tack onto pencil cases, lunch kits or backpacks. (I may place a separate Teeny Tag™ order personalized with an ICE (In Case of Emergency) phone number to hang off clothing for use as personal identification. They also double as great ID for kiddos who are too cool to wear 411 Wristbands.)
It looks to me like I'm in the need of their Ultimate Back to School Combo!
If your kiddos are too cool for Mabel's fun designs, they can graduate to the snazzy new Stylish Scholars Combo.
I should also add that their customer service department is one of the best I've had the pleasure to deal with. They go above and beyond to make sure you're happy with your order.
You all know that I'm a huge fan of Canada's own Mabel's Labels. I've been writing about them here since 2007 and I was a direct sales agent with them prior to that. So it shouldn't be a big surprise that Mabel's Labels Ultimate Back-To-School Combo is on my list of things to get before school starts.
Ordering my Mabel's Labels is one back-to-school task I actually look forward to doing!
