When I purchase margarine, I buy the one that comes in two small containers, 1/2 lb. in each. They make great containers for leftovers. I just write on the lid what it contains with a black sharpie. Works great.

Like you, when I have leftovers, I put them in a container but I do not write on the lid. Instead I write on a piece of white paper what is in the container and the date and use a piece of scotch tape to hold it on to the lid. This helps me see what I have in the refrigerator so I won't forget to use it.
For paper, I use scrap paper from mail etc. I don't buy paper for making notes.
