PEACHY BUY LABEL DEAL!

IMG_6224

Are you sending your kids to camp this summer? I found that my kids would often come home from camp with lighter bags. They are so busy running around that clothing and water bottles would go missing. I have searched many lost & found bins in my day.
Buying good labels will help prevent your child from never seeing their belongings again.

I will NOT use iron labels because they are too much work. I don’t like using a permanent marker because the colour often runs and they aren’t always legible.

Now I’m moving on to the good stuff. Personalized Sticker labels! There are special ones for clothing and shoes. Thy are also great to stick on tupperware and water bottles. They are safe to go in a washing machine or dishwasher. The cutest part about them is that your child could choose their favourite character to put on each sticker.

You know I’m not going to sit and talk about stickers without giving my readers a good deal right?

The owners of Peachy Buy have put out an exclusive Entertain Kids On A
Dime deal on sticker labels.

If your kids don’t go to camp, you can get a head start on school of daycare and get your labels now for less.
