School Supply Labels ~ Free Printables

School Supply Label Printables

I have wanted to make new school supply labels for years, and make a set I could share with others!  Finally I have them done and ready for you and for me!  These can be used in home or for a classroom, and include real photographs of the items. I tried to include anything I could think of, even my kids helped me!  There are 42 labels in all {not all are shown above}.

They were created one label per page, so you can choose which labels you need AND choose the size of the labels!  Not sure how to do this in Adobe Reader?  Here’s a simple tutorial below {this page is also in the PDF file itself}

I hope many homeschool and classroom teachers can use these labels!

Thirty One Party!

Thirty One September 2013 Special

I can’t tell you how excited I was when I got an email from Darcy asking if I’d like to review items and host an online Thirty One Party!  Not only did she  offer to send me review items, but they are the EXACT items I had been eyeing for over a year!  I was through the roof excited!

Here’s what Darcy sent me to review…

Thirty One Organizing Tote -8243

Organizing Utility Tote {item # 3105} in Woodblock Floral

Thirty One Organizing Tote -8255

Fold N File {item # 3890} in Grey Pin Dots ~ it fits in the tote and holds my hanging file folders!

Thirty One Organizing Tote -8245

I am in love!  I had been wanting something exactly like this for so long and when it arrived, I knew it was the quality I had been hoping for, I am so pleased!

I will be using these the same way my pals Jolanthe and Maureen use theirs ~ as homeschool organizers! I am still transferring items, but plan to fill it with the most needed items that I use with Krash and Ladybug during the school week.

Like the Organizing Utility Tote?  I have great news…

For every $35 you spend during September 2013, get an Organizing Utility Tote for $15 or a Super Organizing Tote  for $25!

See more details here in the September Sale Flier.

The Fold N File {item # 3890} is $25, and you could add a Pocket-A-Tote {item # 4135} for $10, or a Zipper Pouch {item # 3405} for $15 and have your $35 so you can save 50% on your organizing tote! 

The prices will show regular until you add $35 to your shopping cart and then the price will drop in your shopping cart.

See the current Fall 2013 Catalog in PDF form.  The catalog is a great way to peek at the products in action and jot down ideas of what you like.  I found it MUCH easier to browse through than the website itself.  Just grab a pen and jot down the item numbers of what you like!

Not familiar with Thirty One?

The name Thirty-One is derived from the Old Testament, where Proverbs 31 describes a virtuous woman who exhibits hard work, wisdom, encouragement and care for others. It is Thirty-One’s mission to celebrate, encourage and reward women for who they are as individuals.


I would be honored if you shopped through my online party this month!  This is my first time as a Thirty One Hostess and my very first Thirty One product owned!


Questions?  Please leave a comment below, and I will ask our Thirty One consultant, Darcy!

Color Code the Kids

Color Coded Homeschool Supplies

We have always been color coded around here, Pac is green, Krash is blue and Ladybug is purple {or pink if whatever it is doesn’t come in purple}. We use this method for water bottles, drink bands, and anything that easily gets mixed up. We love to color code the kids to make things easier!

This was the first year I felt the need to color code homeschool supplies. I was at Target the other day and guess what they had in the dollar section, purple, green, and blue mini caddies for a dollar each!!

They also had star stickers and I picked up a pack of those.  Once home, I got busy!  I sorted out markers, colored pencils, crayons, pencils, scissors, erasers, and glue sticks.

Color Coded Homeschool Supplies

Each child got a complete set of each {well, Ladybug didn’t get it all} and a color coded star applied to each item {each crayon, pencil, marker, colored pencil, glue stick}.

Color Coded Homeschool Supplies

Specifically in the bins…

  • a few pencils {each child got a few of “their” color, that also have the colored star}
  • a set of thin washable Crayola markers {not Ladybug}
  • a set of nice crayons, in all standard colors plus a few extras {peach, pink, etc.}
  • scissors
  • glue stick
  • a set of colored pencils
  • a chunky eraser, and a few eraser caps for the pencils
  • a highlighter {their color} {not Ladybug}

I put the star stickers on about 2 weeks ago and they are peeling a tiny bit on some items, they may require a piece of clear tape to hold, we’ll see once the material begin to be used!

I am hoping this will help with the stray supplies and the never ending search for basic colored crayons!  It always seems that when one of the kids needs a RED, all we have are the many variations of red but not a RED.  I hope this is the end to that problem! We shall see!

Do you color code your kids?  Do you have a blog post about your own color coding methods, share in the comments if you do!
