Myrna, with soups and watery things, I usually put the label inside of a little baggie.

those permanent markers with a fine point for writing.

they smell good, too, which is all the more incentive to use them. :)

I use scotch/masking tape and just write on it with a sharpie or whatever other permanent marker I happen to have if it's in a reuseable container. otherwise it goes into a ziploc or glad bag - still gets written on in marker, but no need for tape that way.

I label containers with a sharpie - always. As a teacher of the visually impaired, I have quite a collection!

In my freezer, ice packs, flour, bread, vodka, frozen veg, veggie burgers, etc...

I will get some little plastic bags and do that. The food will have to be in dishes with clear tops to see the label through it. Or the lid must be removable while still frozen.

We don't keep too many leftovers in the fridge except for soup, since we do batch cooking and seem to have an unbelievable tolerance to eat the same thing for a number of days in the row. We do keep pre-made beans. We also have frozen fruit, and a variety of Quorn products, and little freezer packs for our lunch boxes and some edamame. Hmmm, oh, and Slim-a-Bear Klondike bars and WW multi-seed bread (our fave kind, only available from one store, so we stock up). I wonder (and Willboywonder will have to confirm this) if he writes the labels and puts them inside little plastic bags in the container?

This is probably a silly question, but how do you stop the labels from going funny inside the containers? Anyone fancy fruit puree for supper? I am in such a mess. lol.

Got quite a chuckle from the OP.

I'm one of the people who doesn't have a freezer. My frig went and I had
a counter sized one in the basement so that's what I'm using.

Luckily I live alone and I'm retired. So no labeling problems.
I just have to shop more often than I'd like.

My freezer holds a variety of soups and beans (I cook for the majority of the week on Sunday). We tend to consume the majority of the food weekly so I often don't label at all, but I like the idea of putting labels on the inside. Maybe I could complete my prep work two weeks out. . . emoticon

I want to be a mum, but I know that I need to be as healthy as I can be first. My goal is to drop 75 to 100 lbs.

One thing to help with lost labels, no matter whether you use freezer bags or plastic bowls and contianers, is to put the labels on the INSIDE of the container. That way you can always know the date/contents. I have had so many labels get rubbed off when I put the labels on the outside of the containers. Putting it inside keeps it from getting lost.

Personally, I think the freezer bags you can write on are the best. Because unless I write with a sharpie directly on a plastic container, labels always fall off.

I have spent the last two days trying to sort out the contents of my freezer. I have lost some of the labels on containers. I defrosted what looked like yogurt and it was mashed potato yesterday. Today I defrosted fruit puree and its turned out to be soup. I have got several more of these containers and its like a lottery what is in them. How do you all mark your stuff so you always know the contents.?
