Easy to change, jar labels...

I like to use jars to store things in and sometimes they need to be labeled so that other people using the kitchen know whats in my jars!

I used to make all sorts of fancy labels which was fun and looked great but was annoying when the contents changed or you wanted to be more specific with the label than just "Tea" or "Coffee."

I also used to cut the name of the product off the packet and then drop it inside the jar but it usually ended up unreadable or covered up by the contents of the jar - and then just recently - I had an idea!

Here's what I did...

I cut the labels off the packets as if I was going to drop them into the jar...

And the just stuck them to the jar with a rubber band!
Too easy!

This works wel for my tea labels as I change teas depending on where I get them from from time to time.

As you can see this jar has had a number of teas in it. I keep the labels underneath the current one to save me having to chop up the box again as I often buy the same tea (or cornflour or cocoa) over and over.

This works well for me and adds a bit of character to the kitchen - where nothing really matches anyway! Its quick, easy, free and very practical!

Score card:
Green-ness: Storing your food in reusable and recyclable containers is nice and green!
Frugal-ness: Getting your containers and labels for free is very frugal!
Time cost: About 1 minute!
Skill level: Incredibly easy!
Fun-ness: Great fun!!!
