Tip o’ the day: Leftover Management!

Now that the weather is finally beautiful, I get so motivated to throw open the windows and really clean out! How about you?

Tip of the day: Keep a roll of masking tape and a Sharpie next to your refrigerator, or attached to the door. Every time you put a container in the fridge for the first time, put a chunk of masking tape on the top first and scribble the date on it (e.g. “4/26”). That way, you don’t have to wonder, “How long has this been in here?” It takes all of five seconds, costs almost nothing, helps you remember to finish leftovers before they go bad, and makes fridge cleanout very easy. You can write directly with the Sharpie on jars and throwaway containers like Chinese food packages – don’t even bother with the tape. We do this in my house, and I don’t know how we managed before it.
