Chalkboard Labels

Though I can think of dozens of household uses for adhesive chalkboard labels, they're especially handy in the kitchen. I store a fair amount of food in glass jars and containers, from infused syrups to fruit jams, and I can't stand how they have a way of accruing layers of wrinkled stickers and sticky residue as I continue to reuse them. In addition to their charmingly rustic appearance, these genius little labels erase cleanly to make way for identification of whatever fills the jar next, making them an environmentally friendly and economical way to do away with the mess of my former labeling systems.
