Before my daughter started school last September, I went to Walmart and purchased a few packs of labels for all of her things. I labelled her coat, her extra clothes, the shoes she wears on a regular basis, her backpack, lunchbox and water bottle. Basically, if it went to school, it got labelled.
She started school, and the labeling worked great, everything came home, we didn't lose things, and I didn't have to think about it, which made it a great system in my eyes!
Until a few weeks after school started, when I started finding labels in the washing machine, and then in the dishwasher. By Christmas break there were basically no labels left on anything.
The labels I bought just weren't doing the job. I considered just writing on all of her things with a sharpie, but I knew there had to be a better option. So, of course, I went online. That's when I came across Oliver's Labels, and all of their happy customers. I decided to try them out for myself
Another option, that I really liked, was the QR code. I like that it gives you the security of having a label in case things get lost, but without the possibility of random strangers being able to find out your child's name.
The pre-school package that we ordered had a ton of labels, 70 of them! Which is perfect for us, but you can get packages with more or less depending on your needs.
You know what the best part of all is?
