Cannot Stop Labeling

by HEAB on May 26, 2011

At my former job, not only was I the resident massage therapist, but I was also in charge of the label maker. I labeled EVERYTHING. Loved the label maker, and I totally need one for here at the house. Oh the fun I could have with it – I know, I’m a total nerd.

Anyway, Operation Kitchen Reorganization is done, and it was so therapeutic. Really, I should do projects like that more often. As you know, all hell broke loose when I busted open a bag of millet. We don’t have a pantry, although, I will have one in my dream house someday. I’ve been pinning kitchen ideas non-stop. We have no plans to build a house, but that’s why it’s called a dream, right? Where was I? Oh yes, we have one cabinet designated for dry goods, and all my grains were piled in a corner in various bags and jars. Now, everything is in a jar, and although I know what each jar contains, I didn’t want CD mistaking millet for quinoa…which would never actually happen since he doesn’t eat either, but I needed an excuse to label the jars. So, there you go. CD, this one’s for you. :)

I didn’t want to write directly on the jars since the contents would change, and sticker labels would simply dissolve in the dishwasher. Hmm, what to do? I started googling magnetic labels thinking I could just stick them on the lids, and I noticed an advertisement for magnetic floor register covers – you know, the ones for your heating and cooling vents? We happened to have some that we no longer use…until now.


Using a small Post-It note as a guide, I traced and cut out labels from the magnetic cover. I then used colored Sharpies to decorate them. Now, everything is neatly labeled. I am happy, and CD can barely contain his excitement. 😉

The jars in the fridge…


All the extra labels are stuck to the fridge waiting to be used if and when the contents of my jars should change.

Now, one question. Does anyone know what this is?


It’s some type of blade, and I have no clue which appliance it belongs to. I photographed it with the marker, so that you could get an idea of the size. It was in the Magic Bullet, food processor, Vita-Mix cabinet. Any ideas?  Edited to Add: Never mind. It’s the extra blade to my juicer…which I sold two years ago. Oops.
