It’s that time of year! School is back in session, fall is in the air and 2017 is just around the corner (yikes!). It’s a time when moms and students everywhere are challenged to keep their new schedules, events and activities organized. Keeping a calendar is an essential part in helping manage your daily activities and prioritize your time. It’s also a great way to kick off a new school year and get 2017 off on the right foot. Also, keeping organized helps relieve stress. When kept up-to-date, a planner allows you to find information quickly, prioritize effectively and schedule appointments on the spot.

Even though I’ve started to schedule my appointments on my iphone calendar, I still like keeping an old school day planner. I actually enjoy the process writing down appointments, events and day-to-day tasks in a traditional daily planner. Because there are so many stylish designs in a variety of price points, it was tough to narrow down my favorites!

Best Name Labels for Back-to-School

For many the day has already arrived. For others it’s just around the corner. I’m referring to the first day of school. In preparation for back-to-school, my own family has been compiling all the supplies needed for the school year. Folders, pencils (regular and colored), pens, calendars, scissors, glue, staplers, rulers, makers, paper (lined, plain and grid) – the list goes on and on. To avoid all these items going missing, getting mixed-up or ending up in the lost-and-found box, it’s important to add labels with your child’s name on it. I also like to label their backpacks, lunch bags, water bottles and outwear clothing. Adding personalized name labels not only helps prevent loss, but saves you time and money. With a focus on variety, durability and style, I’ve rounded-up the best name labels for back-to-school. Here’s what made the short list:

best name labels for back-to-school // simplifiedbee.com #labels #organized #school

1 // P-Touch Easy-to-Use Label Maker – because of its versatility to create custom labels with one of 8 fonts, 97 frames and more than 600 symbols. Durable, laminated and specialty (including iron-on for clothing) tapes in a variety of colors and widths are available.

2 // Tiny Prints – because of the quality and adorable designs offered – a look and feel that’s perfect for the younger child in preschool and elementary school.

3 // Kidecals – because they offer a variety of style for a range of ages including preschools, tweens and college students. Love that their labels are PBA-free too!

4 // Emily Press Labels – because their award winning Preschool Shoe labels help little ones put their shoes on the correct feet all by themselves. Children match their shoe labels side by side to create a whole image. Love this!

5 // Name Bubbles – because of all the designs are so darn cute! Love the new Peanuts labels the best. I’ve also used these labels and can say they really hold up!
