    Label Sandwiches with Rubber Bands

    If you make a variety of sandwiches for your family trips it can be disappointing to expected chicken salad and bite into a pb&j. Real Simple magazine's weblog suggests that you label rubber bands with the type of sandwich and wrap them around the sandwich paper or baggie.
    The benefit of this method over just labelling the baggie or paper directly is that if you frequently make sandwiches you can reuse the rubber bands easily. Some people do reuse sandwich baggies a few times but you can use the same rubber band label for years.

    I am a chef and I do a ton of catering from the fanciest banquets to little kids on field trips, Sharpies write on many surfaces including cling wrap and brown paper bags.
