I was recently at a friend's house helping her organize her kitchen. I looked through her freezer and oh. my. goodness. Mayhem. Most items were out of their original package and put into tupperware. As I pulled them out and asked her what they were, the answer was almost always, "Well, I'm not really sure."
Has that ever happened to you? Have you ended up throwing away food from the freezer because you aren't sure what it is? Have you thrown away leftovers from the fridge because you don't know when you put them in there? If you answered yes to either of those questions (or if you just really love organization), I have the perfect product for you.
This is one of my favorite kitchen products. I love them. They have simplified my life in a big way for being such a small thing.
Here's what they are and how they work. You put one of the stickers on your tupperware (or your glass dish lid, etc). You write on it what it is, when you made it, or whatever other information is important. Then you put the dish in the freezer or fridge. Once you pull it back out and eat the delicious contents, you then use the eraser that comes with the stickers and erase what's on the label. The pen used is a Sharpie, so it doesn't smudge or rub off the label. But, it comes off perfectly with the eraser. And I actually lost the original pen and used another Sharpie and it still works perfectly. GENIUS.
You could also put these on your dishes when you take meals to friends. They will know exactly who the dish belongs to so you get it back. Or if you store cereal in a plastic or glass container, you can label it with these.
This company also makes file labels. Such a small and inexpensive way to keep things labeled without having to continue to buy more and more labels.
