Sharpies in the Kitchen

Keeping up with dates on your kitchen jars has never been easier when you keep a Sharpie (or permanent magic marker) in the kitchen.  When you open a jar, for example, spaghetti sauce or grape jelly, simply write the month and date on the top of the jar with your marker.  Now, when you have a second to clean out your fridge, it will be easy to see what needs to go and what can stay a couple more days.

p.s. Don’t forget to keep your marker in an upper cabinet so no little hands give you a new coat of paint!

How do you keep your refrigerator organized?

    Great idea! I use Sharpies to mark the food that I vacuum seal and freeze, but I hadn’t thought to mark stuff in the refrigerator.

      Excellent! Hope the tip helps you out! I *heart* my sharpies in the kitchen. 🙂

    I write right on the jar with my Sharpies, even the pyrex storage jars I use in the freezer. A little rubbing and it comes right off when they are washed.
