Some moms have everything together, they’re perfectly organized and everything in their lives is alphabetical and on-time. I’m not exactly that mom. I am trying to get there though, and Mabel’s Labels has all of the right ways to help with that!
Just perusing their site, I realized how Mabel’s Labels has basically every arena of organization covered, from kitchen to playroom to classroom! I received the Mabel’s Labels Sticky Labels, Teeny Tags, Tag Mates, and Shoe Labels. The Sticky Labels are perfect for toys, food and drink containers, school supplies, and most things you can think of!
My very first thought when I saw the Sticky Labels was our sippy cups. We go to our MOPS group every other week and the kids go off into a childcare-like setting while the moms gather together. To make sure that the kids’ belongings don’t get mixed up, we have to print out paper labels to put their names on them. My husband and I can’t stand those printed labels because they don’t peel off properly in the dishwasher but they won’t stay on well enough to reuse either. Since Sticky Labels are dishwasher and microwave safe, I no longer have to worry about it! I can put my little guy’s name onto all of his cups and no more hassle involved, thanks to Mabel’s Labels.
Also, I noticed that the Mabel’s Labels Sticky Labels don’t leave a messy residue when I peel them off, if I decide to remove them from the item. I don’t have the time or patience for peeling off the gooey mess that gets left behind by other labels.
The Teeny Tags are lightweight metal and can be used for tags on smaller bags, cases, and even pet collars. When we go on road trip vacations, the kids insist on bringing their tiny suitcases that don’t hold much but it makes them feel more independent. They will love to have their Teeny Tags on their little suitcases and bags. My son is also obsessed with his wallet so I put one of his Teeny Tags on the end, making it actually a bit easier for him to open it by using it as a zipper pull!
In our ballet classes, everybody had the same shoes and you’re bound to run into the problem of shoe mix-ups. Mabel’s Labels Shoe Labels are great for all types of shoes. With all of the hand-me-down shoes in our house I never know whose shoe is whose and which is the current one. I paid a small boat load of money for Frozen shoes for my youngest daughter and she wants to wear hand-me-down shoes from her big sisters. I put her Mabel’s Labels Shoe Labels inside of it so I’ll remember not to put them in the attic with the rest of the “for later/back-up” shoes! I’ve already lost a pair of my son’s shoes by leaving them at one of our huge group meetings so I made sure to put a label into his shoes too!
With three girls, we need to be able to differentiate between clothing. While folding clothes earlier, I called the girls into the room and asked, “Whose is this?” “It’s not mine” echoed back in triplicate. It was obviously somebody’s so I replied, “It’s an extra small.” My oldest said, “Well, definitely not mine.” My middle daughter said, “Yeah, I’m not small.” My youngest said, “I’m BIG!” I grabbed the Mabel’s Labels Tag Mates adorned with my youngest daughter’s name, and made sure that this guessing game wouldn’t happen again…as cute as it may have been!
Then we have the fact that my middle daughter and my son are both wearing a lot of Spider-Man clothes. Sometimes I like the kids to organize their own clothes and it’s easier for them to differentiate if there is a label, so I put the little man’s Tag Mates tag onto his shirts to help with that. It’s washer and dryer safe and there’s no ironing or sewing needed which is fantastic because I really just don’t have time for all of that.
Mabel’s Labels has so many other labels that would fit perfectly into my attempt at organization in my home. The Scan & Store Barcode Labels is the coolest system I’ve ever heard of. We have our shed and closets filled with storage containers containing Christmas decorations, various sizes of clothing for the kids, future gifts, and so much more. How convenient it would be to be able to scan and locate all of these items simply using an app instead of my usual habit of trying to decipher what the side of the box says or having to open each and every one.
I was also intrigued by the Mabel’s Labels fundraising opportunities. A product so useful where fundraising is an option?! I could see several of my groups using the fundraisers and labels to our advantage! I would highly recommend Mabel’s Labels to all of my parent and single friends! If you like organization, Mabel’s Labels are for you!
