10% off at Label Daddy

This post sponsored by Label Daddy & U.S.Family. 
Label Daddy - The number one solution for labeling your belongings! 
I'm sure, like me, your kiddos have "stuff" that goes with them everywhere.....school, church, playdates, ect....I have found these stick-on labels to be fantastic. They stay on through the dishwasher & washer/dryer and make their belongings easy to find. Read the customer comments below for other great suggestions as well!
 Remember to label all the clothing, sports equipment and other personal belongings your kids bring to school, camp, sports leagues, day care, and other places. Label Daddy labels keep your belongings from getting lost or mixed up with others. These labels are super durable peel-and-stick washable labels -- they're washer/dryer safe, microwave safe, dishwasher safe and UV resistant! 

 Label Daddy labels are also fun and attractive. You design your own labels! . . . Pick from many colors, sizes and logos, including Disney and Marvel characters, MLB, NBA, and NHL team logos, other sport and fun logos, and more. Their exclusive laminated coating gives labels an extra layer of protection and is a must for camp! These labels are made in the USA and shipped directly to you worldwide.

"No camp label sewing for me....LabelDaddy.com stick on labels for clothes! YEAH!"
Jenny, Chicago, IL
"I love your labels. They are amazing and I tell everyone I know about them. Your labels have made it through a summer of camp (and their laundry) and well as this past school year (and my laundry)."

Kelly, Huntington Woods, MI
"All of us ran the last half mile looking for our oldest triplet. We crossed the finish line and he was not there. Panic set in. I had used a Label Daddy label on the bottom inside of all of our children’s shirt hems “just in case”. Within 15-20 minutes I was very happy to receive a phone call …Thank you Label Daddy."
Wendy, Ontario, Canada
"The kids are having fun with them and have already labeled everything they own whether they are taking it to camp or not! Thanks from a satisfied new customer in Canada."
Tammy, Santa Clarita, CA
"My 87 yr. old dad, and 91 year old uncle, live in a veterans home... The labels were placed on their clothing, TV, VCR/DVD Player and Photo Albums for safe keeping. .. Great Service, Fast Shipping, and your Customer Service was over and beyond the call of duty!

We had 2 categories, one for larger projects, one for smaller. Here was the challenge: pick a place in your home that either a) needs a major re-do or b) just some serious re-organizing.
Our grand prize winner for "Bam, now that's an upgrade" was Gloria Burns!
What a big difference this spring cleaning project made! And don't you love that vintage couch?!
Gloria won a $50 gift card to Lily Noelle Jewelry. Congrats Gloria on a job well done!
 1st place for "Ka-chow, little things that make a big difference" was Shannon Rizzo!
Shannon won a $50 prize pack from Pick Your Plum! Congrats on a space that is probably much easier to use now!
 In both projects our judges said, They used organizing tools to improve their situation for now and in the future.
Thanks to our great judges, Laura Miller & Denise Platte! They are the moms of teens & grown kids and know a thing or two about organizing. :) 
Thanks to everyone who entered - I know you'll all enjoy your re-done spaces! I hope you enjoyed having a little fun motivation. :)
