    Just apply a bit of chalkboard paint to just about any surface, wait for it to dry and suddenly you have a reusable label that can be changed at will. This is particularly helpful for kitchens, like mine, that are loaded with jars full of baking supplies and other cooking necessities. Used all of your bread crumbs and need a space for your popcorn kernels? Just wash the jar and write the new contents in chalk. For a full tutorial, head over to the Inadvertent Farmer.

      This technique can also be useful for labeling your potted plants, especially herbs that often look quite similar to one another.
