cool august mornings bring me back {discount code}


you know those mornings...there's a chill in the air...summer is winding down...i remember those mornings from my childhood well.  feeling groggy after a great night sleep in the crisp late summer air...meticulously planning that first day of school outfit to reflect my style, but never wanting to look like i tried too hard...and not believing that summer vacation was coming to a close.

although most kids around here won't go back for several weeks, the back to school season is definitely upon us.  i hear about sales on notebooks and pens, department stores are carrying new wardrobe choices in the latest styles, and parents are excited to get their kids back into a routine.

one of my favorite things about starting off the school year was the feeling of it being a fresh start.  a fresh start in a new classroom to learn new things, form new habits, and make new friends.  now, as an adult, i get this feeling at the start of the new calendar year, but even without having kids of my own yet, the new school year still brings a sense of nostalgia and freshness.  (and having any excuse to get organized is a good thing to me!)

the best part of a fresh start for me is organizing.  planning, executing, and maintaining systems is challenging, but it's important to stay organized, and it's rewarding when your organization pays off.  kids aren't always the most organized little people, but there are things parents can do to not only help their kids, but also help themselves stay sane.

when i was a kid, i drove my mom crazy when i would leave things behind at school or a sleepover or on a field trip or summer camp (or anywhere else for that matter).  i literally left something everywhere i went.  everywhere.  it could be a jacket, pajama pants, or my lunch box.  it could be socks, underwear, or my toothbrush.  sometimes it was my retainer, my hairbrush, or jewelry.  so, my mom got smart and got labels to put in all my clothes and used a sharpie to write my initials on everything else.  the only downside was you had to iron the labels on (time consuming!) and they didn't stay permanently after washing...and writing initials in permanent marker on all my other belongings?  i can't say that sounds like a good time...and it was kind of embarrassing that i had such a knack for leaving things behind.

now, there is a fantastic solution:  kidecals.  


not only can you get these washable, waterproof labels for your kids' clothes, you can get personalized labels for the whole family's needs and even use them for gifts.  

slap a label on your golf clubs or gym bag...






let your neighbors and friends know those pickles or canned beans came from your garden...






keep the day care staff in-the-know about your child's allergies...





personalize the keyboard on your macbook to keep your creative juices flowing...





you can decorate your walls with removable decorative wall decals...






or send your kid off to camp with all of his or her belongings labeled...





and you can even keep your mailman on his toes...



don't you think these would be a great addition to your family?!  i find the chalkboard labels to be super helpful on jars in the kitchen!
