    Well, I don’t think that me writing on the lids with a Sharpie permanent marker would qualify for this contest. It will be interesting to see what others do though.

    I’ve never made labels but I can in bulk so it would require even more work. Like Robin, I use a sharpie :-)

    Robin & Dan – I’m sure that sharpie writing works just perfectly for what you need…but if you every get the inclination to try something different there are some great ideas out there that aren’t too difficult (and some that are delightfully extravagant).

    I never make labels either, I don’t even use a sharpie, I rely on my eyes to tell me what’s inside.

    Melanie – I’m impressed with you eyeballing skills. I would probably end up with pickled onions on my oatmeal.
