I am in love with see through containers, there I said it! Sorry to my husband, my kids and my grandchildren but I am also having a serious love affair with labels and tags. Labels can take many shapes and forms and here are my favourites:
- The tellfresh range and the tag label by Decor. I love the way you can write on these labels and click them into place. Some of the things you can record are: the name of what is in the container, the use-by date, the date you placed items into the container or any special notes like – contains nuts. The best part is that they are reusable, you write in pencil and erase when no longer required. If there are any special recipes or nutrient lists on the original packaging, I simply cut it off the packaging and either stick it to the bottom of the container or simply place it inside the container with the contents.
- I love label makers. Use them to label the tops of containers that stand up in drawers. My favourite drawer in my kitchen is my dry goods drawer where by flour, sugar and other like items reside. They are all lined up in lovely straight rows with their labels telling me the contents of each container.
