How do you label your jars that you plan to re-use?

Just write the name and date on the lids since they get tossed. Some buy or make adhesive labels for the jars but I find them a real pain to clean off.


RE: Labels, perm marker ok?

I have my own design for circular labels I apply to the lid. All I have to change is the name of the product and the date.

I gave up on jar labels a long time ago. Like Dave I hated the work of removing them afterwards.

Same as Carol. I make my own labels for the lids. I don't bother for basic things that won't ever be gifts like beans, carrots, etc. I just write the year on the lid.
If you do a search here, the place I buy my labels from should come up.

2" labels work for regular lids and 2 1/2" for wide lids.

I use a content...doesn't matter if you put the content but I swear with jelly and jam and that sort of thing, I always end up trying to figure out what kind it is.

Thanks for the info. And I found downloadable designs. Amazing!!!! With little designed labels, you have all the info and the jar looks cute as well!
