Getting September-Ready With Stuck On You


*This post is part of a paid partnership with Stuck On You

Although August has only just arrived, a lot of parents have their minds firmly focused on getting organised for Back-To-School in September already and as somebody who finds organisation and forward planning relaxing - I get it!

Nothing gives me pleasure and a sense of calm like knowing I'm ahead of the game and have everything I need all sorted and ready to go!

You might assume that as we home educate, the Back-To-School prep thing passes us by but in our case - you'd be wrong. I still look to September as a fresh start, and use it to change up our routine, introduce any new subjects we might want to start tackling and generally use it a bit of a reset button.

 And as most of our extra-curricular classes finish for the summer and restart in September, we have that same need to stock up on fresh equipment, new kit bags etc too. We have forest school, tae kwon do, science club, pony club, craft club and cubs all starting up again in September and we need supplies for each club...so August is very much a time for prepping!

One issue we've had this year since my eldest started going to regular forest school sessions is lost property, and so I've been looking out for a labelling solution to help us alleviate this issue and save us money.

I've honestly lost count of the number of water bottles we've lost in the last 6 months and how many times my son has come home from Tae Kwon Do wearing the wrong kit!

I recently discovered Stuck On You and decided to give their labelling solutions a try.

Their website was user friendly and simple, which is always a plus - and they have some very cost effective offers available too which worked out well for me as a mother of multiple children.

I went for a mixed bundle which included a set of stick on labels and a stamping kit.

The value packs offered great value for money, and for my nursery-attender I went for a package that included a large bag label, 100 mini labels, 100 mini iron on labels, 20 shoe labels and 9 name labels which are perfect for folders, lunch boxes, etc.

You're able to select the font, colour and logo too which is perfect for personalising for each individual child and also helps them to be able to spot their own property even before they can read their own name - which makes life much easier for them when everybody has the same Paw Patrol bag!


We also got the clothing name stamp kit which is a first for me but I'm so glad we tried it as it is just so convenient! It is so quick to use, and can also be personalised with a logo as well as a name to allow for easy identification for non-readers too. It comes in a handy little pouch so you can carry it with you if need be too.

I'm so impressed with Stuck On You's range and although their value packs have given us enough labels to last us all year if not longer, I will certainly return to them in the future.

Are you all ready for back to school or do you prefer to enjoy the summer first?
