Label those mason jars!

One of the problems with storing leftovers in the fridge is often it's difficult to determine the exact contents and date of storage of various foods. Labelling the containers is the obvious solution to the problem. But labelling creates problems in and of itself. You have to make a point of finding and marking labels, sticking them on (but only if the food's not too hot or cold) , and then you have to remember to remove the label once the food has been eaten. The labels are rarely reused.

But wait!

I think I've found an easier solution!

I just took one of my kids' markers and wrote right on the glass! lt's visible, washable and I don't have to throw it away after!

Now, if I can just make sure I've always got a marker within my reach when I'm putting away the leftovers...

That's how I do it with breastmilk, I store it in old baby food jars I got from a friend, and just label the jars with marker. Works great!
