Now that little man’s back in school and our schedules have kind of adjusted—I say kind of because we’ve already went through some bus changes that threw us for a loop—I’ve finally got time to tell you all about Mabel’s Labels.
They’re a company I was first introduced to at the Type A Parent Conference, in its first year, when it was still Type A Mom. I fell in love with their personalized bag tags (think dog tag) back then, so when I was presented with the
opportunity to review their Back to School pack, I jumped at the chance.
You see, even though my house is small and I always feel like it’s a mess, I really do thrive on organization. I have a total office supply fetish, and a slight obsession with labeling things. This was the perfect way for me to label all of Joe’s school items—backpack, folders, etc. without writing anything on them. (I’m not very fond of my penmanship.)
I totally didn’t take any pictures of the notebooks and folders, and now Joe’s stuff is at school, but you can at least see the little tag I attached to his bookbag. I have a thing about writing his name on the inside of it, because it makes it difficult to donate (assuming the bag makes it all the way to the end of the school year.)
As part of the Back to School Pack, I got tons of labels for folders, pencils, etc. and even got labels to put in his shoes! This is awesome for times when he may need to take his shoes off as part of the class—I don’t think any other student has the same shoes, but it still makes it easier for him.
As part of my package from Mabel’s Labels, I also got some awesome “Write Away!” labels, so I can label anything I want, with whatever I want, as long as I have a permanent marker. This is excellent for school and in the kitchen. I’ve been using these to label my storage containers. You can use them for just about anything—and it’s a really great tool for when you’re doing any kind of bulk cooking and freezing meals. They’re microwave and dishwasher safe, too!
I’d like to thank Mabel’s Labels for sharing their wonderful product with me. I’m even considering sharing their fundraising program with my son’s school. If you want to get your own label on, check them out at: MabelsLabels.com.
