    I will be reusing egg cartons, and we have lots of eggs coming in. I want to have each carton labeled with the date they were gathered, so I know which eggs to use up first. Anyone have any ideas other than masking tape lol my other idea was punching a hole and tying a tag to the carton

    I use stickers, I stick them in the printer and print text on them. "Fresh eggs from happy garden hens" is what I print on and there is then enough room to write dates etc on them. They look neater than masking tape and better than a plain egg box. I will get some pics later for you :D
