It wasn’t until my first daughter started nursery school that I understood the importance of properly labeling her items. She came home with someone else’s jacket, which was identical to her own. I knew something wasn’t right when the sleeves were too short, and for a minute I actually believed she had a growth spurt and I didn’t notice the jacket didn’t fit properly when I dressed her in the morning. After I saw the size label in the back, I knew it wasn’t her jacket and started looking into ways of preventing this mixup from happening again.
It’s not just clothing I was worried about. I started thinking about all the character lunch boxes that could have been similar. My daughter doesn’t have allergies, but someone else might. So the importance of clearly labeling her school supplies quickly became a mission so there aren’t bigger issues later on. This is when I came across waterproof labels from Mabel’s Labels. It’s been 3 years and I’m still using them! The waterproof, laundry and microwave safe, dishwasher proof labels are perfect for our day to day school-supplies labeling. I have labeled everything from folders to shoes, and order a fresh pack of labels each year. Now that my second daughter is going to school, I have already ordered a cute set of labels for her supplies as well.
Aside from various sized nam labels, Mabel’s Labels also has other products in their lineup that can help keep everyone in the home organized. While we can use our school set of labels for our camp needs, my oldest wanted something a little different for her summer activities labels. Mabel’s Labels has a Limited Edition Camp Label Pack with various sized labels that may help prevent the mixup of camp items. We can label her swim, camp, and dance gear with appropriate sized labels for her personal items (which can be quite pricey if lost.)
