Get Back to school! Review and Giveaway!

Disclaimer - I was given this product(s) free of charge for review purposes.  These opinions are 100% my own.

So who's ready for back to school? Hard to believe there's only a few more weeks before all our kiddos head back to the books.

H has started preschool already this year (they didn't have a spot except for one starting in July so we swooped in and took that up). It's so hard to get a daycare/preschool spot that one place in our area still hasn't contacted with us about a spot available from when we applied before H was even born!! That's over three years ago!

Back to school is such a fun and exciting time for both parents and of course kids. Theres TONS of the excitement buying new clothes, new shoes, book supplies, backpacks, lunch bags, pens, pencils, etc. but we as parents are always concerned about stuff being left on the school bus, at friends houses, in the lunch room, just about anywhere your kids are theres a big chance they are going to leave something behind.

When H started preschool I really wanted to avoid the 'Mommy I can't find...." conversations all the time so I quickly started looking for solutions to this problem.

That's when I found...

Mabel's Labels started from two moms who were frustrated by the amount of stuff that left their home, and never came back. They did plenty of research and testing and created the perfect label for the stuff our kids lose!

All their sticky labels and clothing labels are dishwasher, microwave and laundry safe, and customized with a child’s name, choice of colours and icon. How great is it that!  Your child can help decide exactly what their labels look like. When I was contacted by Mabel's Labels to do a review, I was so excited to give them a try, but what was more exciting was seeing how excited H was when I asked to her to help me choose what they would say (her name) and the icon! It's really easy to do!

Mabel's labels isn't just for kids they also offer child safety products and household labels. They are continuously creating innovative labels for babies, kids and grown-ups. You’ll be amazed at what you can label!

They have such a great selection to choose from and you definitely have to check out the website. Here you can find out exactly what products they offer, what combo packs you can choose from, what icons they have as well as colours and more. You can also find a link to a great checklist of what your children will need when it comes to back to school shopping.

I was sent the Ultimate back to school combo  which includes some of the must haves for back to school labelling including

It was exactly what I was looking for!  I needed to label H's clothing, stuffed animals/toys she brings to school, her shoes, her canteen, etc.  This combo takes care of it all!

Let me talk about the actual labels for a second!  I have ZERO complaints!  They are beautiful to look at, impossible to pull off and I have had no issues with any of them being put in the laundry or dishwasher.  I am very happy with how the labels have worked for my family!

What some?

Buy them

The Ultimate back to school combo pack is a great option to have for Back to School time or ANY time and at a price point of $42, it's not a bad investment.   They do have some other options though in combo packs (some more expensive and some less expensive).  Make sure you take a look around the website to find exactly what you're looking for.

With how quickly the summer has come and gone make sure to order yours before your children come home without their favourite sweater, stuffy, etc.

You can buy Mabel's labels directly from there website here!
