Save Your Budget and Trips to the Lost and Found This Back-to-School Season #BearPawsMabels

Posted on in Products/ School/ Sponsored

I can’t tell you how many trips to the lost and found have happened over the last 11 years I’ve had kids in school. It’s been a lot. We’ve lost lunch pails, shoes, sweaters, and even backpacks and coats! It’s crazy the things they misplace, but they do misplace them. In a school where there are so many kids and so many other items that too get misplaced, it can be hard to find them. Don’t even mention when another child has the same item as your child, and if you didn’t label them then you are usually out of luck!

This year I’m excited to send my kids back to school with the help of Mabel’s Labels. Not only am I going to save myself many trips to the lost and found but I’m also going to be keeping my budget by not having to go back out and buy more lunch containers (and you better believe I’ll be labelling everything that leaves the house!) these things are expensive, to begin with so I don’t want to have to keep going and buying more. Labeling with Mabel’s Labels ensures you will always be able to find your stuff in the classroom, or they will be returned to your child before hitting the lost and found!



Mabel’s Labels are perfect to label everything a child needs – clothes, shoes, electronics, sports gear, lunch containers, water bottles, etc. Not only are they are waterproof but they are also laundry-safe, microwave-safe, UV- resistant, and super cute and personalized.

Ordering our labels was incredibly easy. With a few simple clicks they were ordered, and Justin had chosen his colours, font style and even was able to choose which animal he wanted on his labels, he chose the bunny. They arrived quickly, within a couple of days and I even ordered more for the rest of my kids who will be heading to school in a few short weeks as well.

While labelling everything that my kids will be taking, it makes me think about snacking. What am I going to be sending in all these containers? Well, we have and always will be big fans of Bear Paws.  Not only are they delicious, but they are packaged and ready for on the go.

Bear Paws are one of those snacks moms, and kids enjoy! They are peanut-free while also being a nutritious snack (made better with real chocolate or yogurt, whole grains, and no artificial flavours or colours), taste good and kids (and moms!) love them. They have always been a choice in our home for on the go, and are a perfect addition to any lunch box – with them being peanut free they are also the safe option!

Together, Mabel’s Labels and Bear Paws offer the perfect lunch box or on-the- go solution – for camp, travel and back to school. Our kids are out of our homes for a full day, they need to be armed with the snacks they need to learn and keep their energy up, but they also need to feel like if something of theirs happens to go missing it’s not the end of the world. With Mabel’s Labels helping give our children the confidence they need to get through the day, knowing even if they misplace something it will be found – has always been a life saver in our family. Having so many kids some of them are bound to leave something behind or misplace it, but we always find it thanks to our labels that stick on and don’t come off.

Kids lunches get mixed up? I’ve had that happen from time to time. I’ve accidentally put one of the girl’s lunches into the boy’s bags, and they immediately notice upon opening because it doesn’t say their name or have their personalized tag. No problem! They can switch them and not have to worry. My kids generally get the same items for snacks but sometimes the sandwich will be different, one will want mustard while the other would rather run an all-night marathon than touch mustard – so it’s a great way for them to recognize siblings names and be able to switch back if mom ever accidentally is too tired and gives the wrong lunches out!

Purchase select Bear Paws in stores across Canada to get your $5 off coupon for Mabel’s Labels. Armed with these two this back to school season you are sure to set your little ones up for success!

    We homeschool, but I still use labels on things that we take out of the house. Who wants to have to constantly replace lost items?!

    I love Mabels Labels, was great to meet them at a conference too in 2011. Their labels last a LONG TIME, seriously! I will have to look at Bear Paws, hadn’t heard of them yet. I can’t believe I have to start prepping for back to school and soccer season already!

    Mabel’s Labels just look like such a fantastic idea to head off so many lost items and arguments about who owns the property in question. This product is just a no brainer and everyone with kids should get these. Bears Paws also look like they would be a bit hit with the kids and their discount offer for Mabel’s Labels is just great.

    I have heard of Mabel’s Labels. They certainly look handy for the school year!!

    We have to have labels or names written in everything here in Norway. It is crazy how many labels we go through a year. This is so great that this brand is giving you a discount to get labels. I have never heard of Bear Paws before!

    Aww these are so cute! I love the labels, I haven’t done that for my son yet! Totally need to get on that, school starts this week! Can’t wait to check these out and see if my boys love em!

    Nice, this could even be a great gift idea! One day, I’ll gonna try this Mabel’s Labels!

    We homeschool, but I’m OCD and use labels on everything! I love making sure that everything is labeled and in it’s on little place.

  • Reply Beth Davidson August 14, 2017 at 5:05 pm

    My kids aren’t in school yet, but I think I’m going to need a few of these labels to put directly on my kids, my son is a little wanderer. Lol.

    We have had Mabel’s labels before and they are so well done they really make things special. I will look to see if I can get BearPaws for lunches too

  • Reply Cassie August 14, 2017 at 8:08 pm

    Labels are essential! Especially because everyone seems to have the same containers these days anyway! Those bear paw treats sound delicious and fun for school lunches

  • Reply Karen Morse August 14, 2017 at 9:06 pm

    These labels are awesome! I just love making sure that everything is labeled especially with the things that I use for work. I am so happy that these are waterproof!

  • Reply Brittany August 14, 2017 at 10:59 pm

    Wow hose labels are so cute! I’m all about labels with my family. There are 5 of us and I’m all about anything that can keep us organized.

  • Reply Toughcookiemommy August 15, 2017 at 12:21 am

    This is such a great idea because kids are always leaving things at school. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve had to check the lost and found at my sons’ school for sweaters and clothing items he left there.

  • Reply Jessica Joachim August 15, 2017 at 7:08 am

    What a wonderful idea to use the labels on the lunch containers. I don’t send lunch yet, but next year my daughter will have to take lunch to Kindegarten so I am so saving this! Those bear paws look DELICIOUS as well

  • Reply AnnMarie John August 15, 2017 at 7:14 am

    With 4 kids, labels are everything to me especially since I usually buy similar items just different colors. I think this will help keep us more organized at home as well. I’d love to have labels like these!

  • Reply Cindy Ingalls August 15, 2017 at 2:34 pm

    Mabel’s Labels and Bear Paws sound like the perfect back to school pair. Kids are great at losing things so adding labels can help stop the disappearance of items and who doesn’t like a good, healthy snack during the long school day.

  • Reply Jennifer Seigler l Life of a Southern Mom August 15, 2017 at 6:09 pm

    Mabel’s labels is a good idea for kids’ belongings. My sons always leave one or two of their stuff at school. Thankfully, since their stuff is properly labeled, we get the back the next day. Oh, and thanks for letting me know about Bear Paws. My boys would love to have those in their lunch boxes!

  • Reply Krystle Cook August 15, 2017 at 6:15 pm

    These labels are such a great idea. I am going to be doing this for my kids this year.

  • Reply Robin Rue August 15, 2017 at 6:16 pm

    My kids used to always have their stuff labeled and still love to create fun ones. Those snacks also look just perfect!

  • Reply Amber Nelson August 15, 2017 at 8:22 pm

    I have heard a lot of good things about Mabel’s Labels. I’m going to check these out for my kids before back to school.

  • Reply Rachel August 15, 2017 at 9:39 pm

    I’m in the US. I will have to see if I can order too. I am about to label EVERYTHING!

  • Reply Amanda Rosson August 16, 2017 at 1:42 am

    I don’t have kids but I can definitely see how helpful those labels could be! Also, those snacks look so cute and yummy!

  • Reply Angela Ricardo Bethea August 16, 2017 at 8:54 am

    Children easily forget their stuff when something grabs their attention so putting labels on them really helps. Though I’ve never heard of Bear Paws before.

  • Reply Jean August 16, 2017 at 5:45 pm

    As a teacher I definitely agree in labelling absolutely everything! This labels sound amazing. And what great snacks Bear Paws sound.

  • Reply reesa August 16, 2017 at 8:38 pm

    I LOVE Mabels Labels. These bear paws look so cute and tasty. I don’t think we have them here.

  • Reply Cassie Tucker August 16, 2017 at 9:10 pm

    These Bear Paws cookies look very tasty. Are they available in the United States anywhere?

  • Reply Katherine August 17, 2017 at 11:30 pm

    I can’t live without those labels. Such a lifesaver, but I did find them a big too large for some things, so this size is perfect.

  • Reply HilLesha August 18, 2017 at 4:01 am

    I love Mabel’s Labels! I need to order some more labels from them sometime soon since my son started school on the 9th.

  • Reply lydia August 18, 2017 at 12:45 pm

    I haven’t heard of this brand before but they look like such a cute brand for little kid snacks!

  • Reply Shannon Gurnee August 18, 2017 at 12:52 pm

    I love the labels that Mabel’s Labels has! They are definitely great for kids going to school and having a coupon to use is even better!
