Kitchen Sharpie

If you know me, you know that I'm a big fan of the Sharpie. I keep one in my pocket, along with a ball-point pen, at all times. You never know when you might need to mark something: film canisters, sample printouts, or plastic cups at a party. I even go so far as to buy a specific kind of marker: the Sharpie Industrial. It's fade-resistant, good for temperatures up to 500°F, and most importantly, acid-free.

Anyway, today's tip is: keep a Sharpie next to the pantry or refrigerator. Get in the habit of labeling everything when you first open it. Before long, you'll never have to guess how old something is: you'll know with certainty.
