Welcome to another edition of Fantastic Finds Friday. Personalized clothing labels are my great find for this week.
The kids are back in school. Cool! School uniforms make mornings simple. Even cooler! The kids came home without their jackets--again. Not so cool. The jacket went into the enormous lost and found pile with other jackets that look exactly the same. Even less cool. The jackets probably went home with someone else and will never be seen again. Super un-cool! You get the picture.
Are you in the same boat? Even if your kids don't wear uniforms, I bet you still have to deal with items (from lunch boxes to homework binders) getting lost at school. Enter my cool new find--Sticker Labels from Label-Land.com!
Keep your kid's stuff out of the lost and found!
How many times have you sent your kid to school (without labeling their stuff), and they lost it that very day? These cool labels make it super easy to keep track of your kids' things. Thanks to the pack I received from Label Land, my kids' lunchboxes, shoes, sweaters, and backpacks are now labeled and ready to be lost--and easily found.
I'll admit, I didn't think my almost-12-year-old would be thrilled about these stickers. I was wrong. She was the first one to grab them and start labeling her things. I guess you never grow out of stickers!
Simplify your laundry sorting!
Are you scratching your head on this one? Why would I want to label my kid's shirts and pants? It's not like they take them off at school. They're not going to get lost. My kids wear uniforms, and I love them. Unfortunately, Boo and Lu wear the same size clothes, and they want their "own" clothes. They want to put them in their own drawers and hang them up on their own side of the closet. (Let's get real. They want Mom to do it for them!)
Do you have any idea how difficult it is to figure out which clothes belong to which kid? If you're a mom, even if the kids aren't the same size, it's still tough!
I found the perfect solution with Label Land's STICK-N-WEAR labels. You just stick the clothing labels right on the care tags of the kids' clothes, and you are set! Instead of getting labels for each kid, I opted for one set of labels that I personalized for each child. I simply added dots of their favorite color with a permanent marker to each tag. If the clothes didn't have care labels, I carefully added a dot of their favorite color somewhere that it wouldn't bleed through the fabric.
I'm actually excited to fold the next load of laundry! It's going to be so easy! Maybe my hubby will even volunteer to do the sorting! I can dream, can't I?
I love that labeling ensures that my kids’ stuff will come home with them…and not get tossed into the lost and found box.
