Too many old receipts and "sold" stickers

We're moving all contents to a new site

Looking forward to seeing you at the new URL 😊 😘

All of my friends have laughed at my outrageously looking fridge, but you'd be surprised how useful these are, if you want them to be.

As for the thermal receipts, I've found a way to utilise them at least once before they make their way to the bin: as food storage labels. I will label anything to go into the fridge or freezer in a jar or tub, on a piece of thermal receipt (half, if it's a short name). By using the used "sold" stickers, I can stick the label onto the containers. This is extremely useful when you have a lot to store, especially things that are not easily recognised when frozen. (Hint: if you have a husband who can't tell beef from chicken, labelling is essential :-P )



If they are not ruined when defrost, these labels can be reused again and again. I just stick them on the fridge door again until they are needed next. This saves me repeating the writing process unnecessarily.


Yes anyone visiting my place is still laughing at the fridge, but I'm just happy about making something useless, useful, even if it's only for a brief period of time.

Note: I use all sorts of packaging bags that come with food or clothing as garbage bag. Sometimes there are holes on the bags so I'll use these stickers to patch up the holes.
