{CLOSED} Lovable Labels – Back to School Giveaway

You’ll never have to visit the school’s lost and found again with these lovable labels!

We work really hard with our school aged kids, teaching them personal responsibility and keeping track of their belongings. But inevitably, something doesn’t make it home. Ever. And when I see the lost and found box at school, I pretend that we don’t have anything in there, even if we might. Why? It’s massive. It’s intimidating. And I’d rather not have to look through it all.

Instead, I’d rather label. And get things back to my kids before they end up in the lost and found box. This is why I’m thrilled to be giving away these to you all this week. Perfect timing, as we head back into the school season too!

The Lovable Labels Back to School Pack is jam-packed with over 165 different labels to suit your every need, and includes the following:

  • 15 Regular Labels
  • 80 Slimline Labels
  • 48 Press n’ Stick Clothing DOTS
  • 12 Shoe Labels
  • 2 Mini-Metal tags
  • 12 Square Labels
The winner of these label packs can personalize them with their child’s name, their family’s last name or any other name they prefer…and they get to choose from 10 different designs and 45 different icons!
Also, I’ve got a coupon code for $5 off $25 purchase or more, good through 9/30/2012. To redeem a coupon you may use it while checking out, use the code BTS201247.

*Disclosure: I did receive a similar gift pack of labels. Opinions are my own. And yes, I’d rather not get near the lost and found box at school!


  1. Susan says

    My daughter lost her only sweatshirt and convinced me it was lost at home, not at school. Over a month went by and I happened to be at school and had time to look in the huge lost and found pile (she told me she had already). When i got to the end of the pile it was there! And the next day was a sign they were donating all to Goodwill at the end of the week. So glad we found it!

  2. Stephanie says

    When I was in the first grade,I had lost my favorite purse on the playground. I eventually found it, and vowed not to take purses to school, until I was much older!

  3. Victoria says

    My daughter lost her jacket one day. We looked all over the house and couldn’t find it. We looked in the car, at Nana’s house, everywhere. Only to discover she had left it at school. Her teacher knew it was hers so she didn’t put it in the lost and found.

  4. says

    My son did a book report project last year. He used some LEGOS guys as the men. Someone stole them from out in the hallway (I guess they technically weren’t lost, but it was the first thing my son mentioned when I asked him).

  5. Sonya says

    I vividly remember losing a $20 bill…I am still VERY protective over cash in my pocket now (I try to make sure it’s tucked away in a wallet, or zipper compartment of my purse!)

  6. Candace says

    My Kindergartener did lose a much-beloved Adidas sweatshirt at school last year. The matching pants came home, the top did not…

  7. says

    My son seems to lose something once a week at school: gloves, hats, sweatshirts, etc. Luckily everything has turned back up eventually.

  8. Kelly Rose says

    I lost so much stuff growing up. But most memorable was a trip when I was 14 and I lost my new, expensive camera. :(
