Tip: Use Painters Tape to Label Leftovers and Pantry Items

I was a little hesitant to post this tip, because I thought I was the only crazy person who did this—until I attended a cooking class at a fancy local restaurant recently and saw that they do the EXACT SAME THING:

Use blue painter’s tape to label your leftovers, freezer containers, and jars of beans and grains in the pantry.


  • It sticks to everything.
  • More importantly, it comes OFF everything.
  • It’s cheap.
  • It’s easy to write on.
  • It’s BOLD and easy to read.

BOOM.  I just organized your pantry, didn’t I?  😉

Do you have a crazy awesome kitchen tip?  We would all LOVE to hear about it. Let me know in comments below.
