I’ve found that kids love these because they feel a lot more able to help. It turns a chore into more of a game. And parents enjoy them too because… in all seriousness… when are we NOT tired? Reminders are so helpful. I can’t count the number of messages I’ve gotten from Moms who say their husbands need drawer stickers most. And as a mom myself, I appreciate them every single time I put things away. It’s not realistic at my house to have the kids help ALL the time, but no matter who is doing it, they speed up the task.
As a random aside, when I first shared these I kinda thought of them as more of a girl thing. Maybe just because girls are what I know best. But boy stickers actually slightly outsell the girl sets! So funny, right? I’d be happy to hear theories on why what is. But however they’re used, I love the feedback I get about them. I haven’t heard of a kid removing them from drawers or bins yet – they’re made with such sturdy adhesive. And yet you can peel them off in one piece without surface damage when you’re ready. That’s the best of both.
I asked Kim whether I could sponsor a post and I’m so glad I did. Kim didn’t use them on drawers – she uses them on a hanging closet organizer! Go see her setup – and there’s a spring cleaning giveaway to enter!
