My spices are up in trays on a shelf and I've been meaning to label them for ages so I can pick out what I want at a glance. I kept putting it off though, because it seemed so complicated. I wanted to print waterproof labels in the perfect font, possibly with color coding or symbols, maybe both. Of course, these details would make it that much more annoying to update when I bought a new spice, which happens pretty frequently.
So one day last month I just thought, fuck it. I'm going to label these jars with masking tape and a marker. I'm not going to write neatly or cut the tape with scissors. I'm just gonna tear off random pieces and hope it's at least half-legible.
And you know what? It's totally fine. It's more than fine. It's done, it works and I'm totally down with it. Sometimes a half-baked job done with no stress so you can get on to other things is enough. Sometimes it's the best thing you can do. I need to remember this.
