Ava’s Office Solutions 24 piece Magnetic Push Pins {Review} #avasofficesolutions

DSCN5152
Ava’s Office Solutions 24 piece Magnetic Push Pins have been a wonderful addition to our office and homeschooling supplies! We are always hanging and posting things up so typically we have a lot of push pins and magnets around. However, I tend to find I use magnets far more than push pins. Typical places to hang important documents or lesson plans always end up on my white board in our schooling area or on the fridge in my kitchen. Continue reading

Label Daddy Review & Discount!

P1150945

If your children are out and about or even at home, you are going to find or have already found out how important labeling items is. Chances are your child may have the exact pair of shoes, jacket,bag, or whatever else and that item may have been picked up and taken home by someone else. This has happened to us a few times before we started using labels and tags on my children’s things. Whether items be labeled for school, extra curricular activities, or anything elses during the year, labeling will ease your mind knowing if something goes missing, chances are it will be returned to you.

Label Daddy Labels are extremely easy to purchase for most any of your needs. They are fully customizable which is great! You can pick from the various color, font, text and an icon, for your design. There’s Disney, Marvel, Major Sport Team Logos, Various Clip-art, and more to chose from. You even have the option to have your labels laminated for items that are more heavy duty. I’ve found their labels to be super durable and long lasting!

I recently customized a set of the small all purpose labels which is 1 1/2 x 5/16 in size. This particular pack contained 80 labels, which is will leave me to label plenty of things! My 3 1/2 year old knew these labels were going to be for his things, so I let him pick out his preferred design. I wasn’t surprised in the least bit that he was drawn to the MARVEL category. He’s all about super heroes right now! I liked there were several to chose from such as Spider Man, Captain America, Thor, and of course Iron Man. Each characters had several icon option images. So there’s a good chance there’s a perfect choice for any recipient. Text type, text color, and background color can also be picked out if applicable.
After you have finished designing, you are then directed to put in all your billing information. Labels will arrive according to the shipping method you chose when checking out.

We’ve been using the Label Daddy labels for over a few weeks now now and the labels have held up extremely well. It’s so easy to apply these. I simply peel & stick! I’ve put these on school supplies, water bottles, toys, and more! These have gone through the dishwasher, clothing washer, and dryer. The design still looks sharp and there’s really no sign of wear! The only thing to take note of is that these should not be ironed! I believe we’ll be using these for quite a while. I’m very satisfied with Label Daddy Labels and my son totally loves these!

If you are looking to sharpen many pencils quickly, you’ll be pleased with the X-ACTO SharpX Performance Electric Pencil Sharpener. One of it’s features is that this pencil sharpener allows you to sharpen multiple standard sizes of pencils, even triangular ones! This is a great feature for my family since we have younger children that use larger beginner sized pencils, removing any need for multiple sharpeners in our home.

Review: Eco Zip | Use Less Plastic, Get more Bag!

Eco Zip bags are a great product that helps reduce the amount of plastic being used on a day to day basis. In fact, these bags are made with 20% less plastic than your normal ziploc bag. So what else makes these bags so different? Well, it’s the fact that you can use one bag like it’s two!

Eco Zip bags have three zips in each bag. This provides for a world of opportunity to get more organized! You can unzip the middle zipper and have one large bag or you can keep it close and have two separate compartments. This feature makes these bags great for packing lunches with dry ingredients on one side and wet on the other. Just think, no more soggy sandwiches!

These bags are also ideal for travel, for example, I like to put my makeup brushes on one side and things like my powders, foundations, blushes and other beauty items on the other. EcoZip even made it as 1 of the top 13 travel products in Prevention magazine!

Craft time on the go or at home is so much easier with Eco Zip. I can prepare my projects in advance and everything needed for project is stored together neatly in it’s own little bag. Embellishments or perhaps pre-cut card stock on the other for on the go card making or scrapbooking with friends. The possibilities of what you could use these bags are endless!

ECO Zip are the best BPA-free storage bags that I’ve come across. I highly recommend them to all my friends and family! You can find a variety of sizes on their website and prices are 3.99 for Snack/Sandwich, Storage/Quart, and Storage/Gallon sized boxes. Pretty affordable if you ask me!
