Last year a funny think happened. My kids lost their sweatshirts and sweaters same as every other year. But several of them found their way home to us. We have Mabel’s Labels to thank for that. It’s a back to school ritual for us to sticker all their school jackets, sweaters, shoes and accessories with these durable, washable, identification labels.
I’ve stopped even trying to label the clothes by individual kids, incidentally. With four kids in the house and hand me downs aplenty, we’ve had our labels made to say “Those Maso Kids”, as in… “Who left their sweater on our front porch? Must have been one of those Maso kids…”
I’m on the loss situation this year. I’ve upped the ante with Mabel’s new Teeny Tags. These are going on every lunchbox, backpack and otherwise unlabelled zipper pull for easy and immediate identification purposes.
Looks like “Those Maso Kids” mom will be doing less shopping for replacement goods. In this economy, that is a very good thing.
Mabel’s Labels has an awesome back to school pack on their site that includes all the basics, as well as the new Teeny Tags. Get them now, before sweater loss season sets in!
