It is actually a law in Michigan that schools receiving state funds can’t start before Labor Day. We EARN our summers here with crazy winters. So the tourism industry needs every last weekend it can get.
Some of us however get a little antsy waiting until Labor Day so we are excited to be back to school next week. To say my kids are excited is actually an understatement. They ask me everyday when they can go back. And I am thrilled for them to go back too. You know…..because of the learning……
When I got our back to school list this year nearly every item I had to buy was followed with “please label.” Do you have any idea how hard it is to label mechanic pencils?
Mabel’s Labels does and they have come to my rescue!! Their Skinny-Minis fit perfectly only pencils and pens. Their Sticky Labels fit perfect on glue sticks, folders, notebooks, pencil cases and pretty much everything else that needs labels.
You know what else needs labeling? Coats, art shirts, and PE shoes. True you could just write on the tag with a Sharpie. OR your could be cool mom and use a Tag Mate or Shoe Label. Seriously I love those shoe labels. Shoes are just hard to label!! And these labels do not come off even in the sweatiest of gym shoes!! I am thinking both of these labels would come in ridiculously handy for summer camp.
Then my personal favorite is their Bag Tags. A ridiculously cute way to label backpacks, sports duffels, dance bags or whatever your kids are carrying around.
Mabel’s Labels have put together some awesome combo packs or you can order what you need for your labeling needs. And here is a free tip from me: Buy labels with your last name and then you can use them for all your kiddos. I didn’t use all mine this year so I am excited I will have more to use next year. I am already looking forward to bringing home school supplies and getting my label on.
Through Oct. 15th, you can get $6 off your Mabel’s Labels purchase with the code AQV79R.
I was provided with the Ultimate Back To School Combo to review. All opinions and obsessive love of labeling are all mine.
