Leftovers are a fact of life in most families. We can’t afford to let this food go to waste! But when you look in the fridge and cannot easily tell what is in a container, do you skip using them and move on to something else? Do the kids spill containers trying to open them to see what is in there? That was happening a lot around our house until it dawned on me that we could use dry erase markers to label the tops of plastic and Corningware containers. Now kids don’t have to open a container to know what is in it (which means they are spilling things as much) and we can easily identify and group leftovers for later use.
The best part – the dry erase marker doesn’t wipe off too easily by little hands when on the plastic lids, but it washes right off with a damp cloth.
