Not too long ago I was asked by Avery to review some of their wonderful new line of Martha Stewart Home Office products sold exclusively at Staples. Y'all know how I adore Avery products (remember how I used them in Eloise's first birthday party here and here) and who doesn't just love Martha Stewart (man she rocks!) Well, if you add that with how much I love me some organizational goodness of course I was so in!
They sent out some awesome products especially perfect for organizing for Back-to-School. Any of you doing that right about now? ;-) I still can't believe my Noah will be a Kindergartener this year (!)
First off, let me share with you the No-Iron Clothing Labels. These are sooo cool and are exactly what they say they are. You just write on them with a permanent marker...
And then press them firmly (for about 5 seconds) to your garment of choice. Presto magic, you now have yourself a permanent clothing label you didn't have to iron! I put one on Noah's back pack to prevent any mix ups there might be at the end of the school day. The packaging says to wait a full 24 hours before washing and that the labels should last about 20 washer/dryer cycles. Oh, and that they won't work on denim.
How great would these be for jackets, coats, hats, gloves, mittens, boots, etc. so that you don't lose any clothing or accessories during recess or the after school craziness before pick up!
I also wanted to show you the really cool chalkboard labels this home office line has out now. Aren't chalkboard labels all the rage right now...love the ease of changing what they can say! These labels come in various sizes and are REMOVABLE!! Yup, if you applied it slightly crooked you can just peel it off and reapply...yahoo!
I (*ahem) had to reapply these a few time to get them just right on the buckets and they still stuck on so nicely and the corners don't look beat up at all from my nails. We now have nicely labeled buckets for markers, paint brushes, colored pencils, gel pens, and crayons...hooray for back to school organization. Noah is now set up nicely to do all his homework :-)
