I was one of those kids who labeled everything. EVERYTHING! Do you remember those old-fashioned label makers that printed out that black tape with white capital letters on it? I used that thing A LOT. And, I also had Heidi stickers and labeled anything and everything with them. And, of course, there were the return address labels that I put inside all of my books.
Labels, Labels, Labels
To this day, I still love labels. As you can see above, I label everything from items at my desk to cake pans and lids to drink containers. Almost anything that ever leaves our house has a label on it. Any container that has even gone to a potluck dinner or picnic is labeled (container and lid). Any piece of sports equipment that Ian uses is labeled. I purchased Gracie her own labels to use on all of her music items (violin case, music stand, books, etc.) They are also great for anything school-related and work-related.
We have a couple sets of family labels that contain our last name and address. These are versatile and work on almost anything. When Gracie started attending music festivals, I bought her a set with her name and cell phone number on them. Most recently, I got myself a set with my name and cell phone number.
Where to Buy Labels
Over the years, I’ve purchased all of our family labels from Kidecals. I love their labels because they are high quality, heavy duty labels that hold up! Kidecal labels are:
- Microwave Safe
- Laundry Safe
- Dishwasher Safe
- BPA Free
When I put a label on something, I don’t have to worry about it peeling off or getting ruined in the wash. I love that!
And, they have such a great variety of label designs! From owls to butterflies, from rockets to soccer balls, there really is something for everyone. If you’re more plain, there are also plenty of plain labels to choose from, as well as some with fun, colorful designs (these are my personal preference). Personally, I like choosing the value packs because they come with both rectangular and round labels in a variety of sizes, making them versatile enough to use on most everything you need to label.
What to Label
If you’re wondering why you would need labels or what you would use them on, trust me, there are plenty of things that you need labels for! Here are just a few examples:
- School supplies – notebooks, pencil cases, backpacks, lunchboxes, binders
- Sports supplies – duffle bags, balls, water bottles, hockey sticks, face masks, mitts, bats, shoes
- Baby & Toddler items – bottles, sippy cups, diaper bags, clothing, anything that goes to the church nursery or daycare, strollers
- Homemade gifts
- Personal items – purses, wallets, watches, glasses case, contacts case, car keys
- Electronic items – cell phones, tablets, laptops, laptop bags, e-readers, chargers
- Travel items – suitcases, carry-on bags, toiletry bags
These labels are also great for businesses and for people with health issues or allergies.
The possibilities are endless!
