I am a calorie counting fool. Every night I make my lunch and dinner to take to work the next day. It saves time to cook the night before but every morning I’m still scrambling around looking up calorie counts online for the items I cooked before. Now if I cook out of boxes and bags counting those calories is pretty easy. I’m more of a bulk sort of girl.
Every time I finish spaghetti sauce or jam I wash the jar, remove the label and use it to store my bulk grains and beans. It always drove me crazy that the lids were different but I dealt with it.
Today I bought some chalkboard paint and decided to makes the lids not only match but also make them functional too.
After several coats of paint I had a cabinet of matching jars.
Now I can easily find the calorie content of my food and also change the labels when I empty the jar.
