Sometimes it feels like mine do. And never is that more apparent than when they go to day camp. We’ve bid adieu to t-shirts, shorts, bathing suits, towels, sunscreen, water bottles, books, sticker collections, and I’m sure I’ve blocked out the rest.
This summer, we’re wrapping up our third week of camp and we’ve lost only one item, a sunscreen stick. This is unquestionably due to the new labels I affix to everything that leaves the house. They’re from kidecals, and I like them because they come in really cute designs–I went with the “Orange Banner” style–and more importantly, because they’re waterproof and they don’t budge even after going through the washing machine and dishwasher. You can get 120 small labels for $21, or 24 larger labels and 54 smaller ones for $28–either way a bargain, when you think of what you’d pay to replace all the items your children misplaced. (Shipping’s free, too!) Just yesterday, the camp t-shirt I thought we’d lost the day before was returned in my daughter’s backpack. No doubt it’s because of the handy little label inside.Add a Comment
