Today was the last day to label all the things for school... Gaby starts Tuesday, and Mia starts Wednesday (actually Mia only has class Wednesday and Friday from 9am to 11am as part of the adaptation process, and will start on Monday everyday from 8am to 12:30pm). BUT, the parents meeting is tomorrow and also the moment to hand in all the supplies.

We have owned a labeling machine since the longest (Brother PT-65 P-Touch), but it has been long since the last time we used it... I think that we havent even used it since we got to this Country a few years ago. Anyway, it needed new cartridge and just when I was about to order the new model (Brother PT-80 P-Touch) was at half price, mostly at the same price that the cartridge alone was. Plus it was on Amazon Prime, which means that I was going to be able to get it in 2nd day air for free!

So, I when ahead and ordered it, mostly because I didnt want to take the chance of the old one not working anymore, and waste the oportunity to get the new one is usch a good price (if you check the price now, it is back to the regular $29 bucks).

Im REALLY happy with my labeling time!! The machine does leaves a lot of space at the beginning and end of what you print (around two inches of wasted label), but what I did was to write the same name several times, so it only prints with one litle space in between.

It even has some symbols that you can print, so I printed a puppy at the beginning and end of Gaby's labels (her backpack, lunchbox and handtowel have a puppy in it), and an apple aroud Mia's name just because!

We buy most of the things online, so I have wishlists to have in one place everything that we are planning (or at least hoping) to buy.
