This morning I closely avoided a breakfast disaster when I was fixing a bowl of oatmeal. I added sugar and was just about to sprinkle what I thought was cinnamon in the bowl, when I realized I had the paprika container instead. This isn’t the first time it happened, so I thought I’d better do something about it.
Here’s what the two spice containers look like side-by-side:
They just look a little too much alike and are easy to confuse. Time to do something about it. I grabbed some old masking tape we had laying around and a marker.
I wrapped some masking tape around each spice container.
Last but not least, I used a marker to write the name of the spice on each container. Much easier for me too see and pay attention to what spice is in the container.
