What To Do With Free Return-Address Labels



You probably receive hundreds of return address labels in the mail. (I had enough to wallpaper a large room.) While watching TV, I cut my name and address off the labels and then give the remaining images to children in my family or leave them in the break room at work for others to take home. I keep ones I think won't interest them, but pass on images of flags, animals, flowers, and other colorful designs to the kids.

  • I use them when I have to fill out a form or raffle ticket or something that can be redundant with my name and address... - by RICCILYNN
  • I resented those 'free' labels so much I took the time to get off those mailing lists. I use a 'stamp' for our return address... much nicer than having to peel & stick or even lick the stamp. - by AZURELITE
  • I also save the designs from address labels. I work with children and once or twice a year, I bring out my bag of label designs, any other stickers that arrive in the mail and markers. I let children decorate paper shapes or paper plate wreathes. They love it. - by DEWEYGAL
  • What a great idea! I'm going to pack some in zip bags so the grands can take them on road trips. - by DUSTYPRAIRIE
