Like always, I headed to the Lovable Labels site and let my kids pick out the design they wanted (they went with sports).
I love the variety that the Back To School pack offers; for $44.95 you receive over 165 labels:
- 30 sticker
- 80 slimline
- 12 shoe labels
- 48 Press N' Stick Clothing DOTS
- 12 Square Labels
- 2 Mini Metal Tags
When they arrived, I set to work. The Mini Metal Tags held up from last year, so I haven't had to replace those yet. I grabbed our old and new lunch containers and was happy to see that the labels on the old container had stood up fine to the many runs through the dishwasher and microwave. I added labels to our new containers and Mr. K's lunch bag since it was new.
Mr. J got a new pair of shoes, so they needed to be labelled, and once Mr. K gets his, I will add labels to his shoes as well. Mr. J has new jackets and winter gear for the year, so they needed to be labelled. Mr. K will be wearing Mr. J's old jackets, so no need to re-label them (I have many labels with only our last name and phone number so the items could be re-used without re-labelling); this year I went with J or K (our last name) so that the could be used by either of the boys. Since the clothing labels are made to be used on clothes, they are able to withstand all the washing and drying without issue so no need to re-label.
