Espresso Break: Colour Sticker Dots

sheets of different colored sticker dots

Whereas we’re on the subject of group — right here’s one other new factor I’m attempting: I lately purchased coloration sticker dots in hopes of establishing a system for my freezer — in addition to presumably my make-up stuff.

Right here’s the wrestle I’m attempting to repair: I want to maintain my freezer organized by kind (meats with meats, veggies with veggies) — however after I do this I can by no means bear in mind what I purchased and when, and it’s a ache to seek out the expiration dates en masse. (Much more so after I purchase one thing that has like a 6-month expiration date, however then stick it within the freezer straight.) So I purchased these sticker dots and used an index card to assign a month to every coloration. Then after I add new objects to the freezer, I simply slap on this month’s sticker — the hope being that I can discover the older stuff in a faster method.

I’m additionally going to start out utilizing it with make-up merchandise, I believe — I’ve way more make-up merchandise than I can ever use at one time, so I attempt to hold newly purchased merchandise sealed for so long as potential — however then I can by no means bear in mind which product is oldest (and thus must be tried first).

This was an even bigger downside after I was signed up for on of the subscription companies (I believe I had intervals with Birchbox, Ipsy, and Play by Sephora) and there was a continuing stream of latest merchandise into my assortment. Again then I really printed out handle labels with house to jot down “date in” and “date opened” — however the handle labels I used are too massive to stay effectively to the assorted merchandise, and too small to jot down on with any readability. So I’ve been considering of taking just some colours of dots and assigning them 6 month intervals of the 12 months – for instance, 2022-1 will inform me one thing got here within the first 6 months of 2022, and 2022-2 will inform me it got here within the final 6 months. (We’ll need to see how this works in observe, although…)

Readers, do you might have any bizarre programs you utilize for remembering dates for varied merchandise, whether or not make-up, freezer, pantry, or extra?

(You may get related dots to those pictured at just about any retailer that sells workplace provides — the pictured ones are those I obtained, from Amazon, for $6.99 with Prime. I just like the 16 totally different brilliant, joyful colours (about 140 stickers for every coloration).)
