I use any clear or white plastic for labels: milk jugs, plastic carton inserts, or any smooth plastic. I write on it with a sharpie, and then cut it up (I can usually read these for about a year outside).
Storing gallon milk jugs: I used about 50 milk jugs last year for various gardening needs (winter sowing, seed starting, frost protection cap, etc.). I use jute string to tie together 20 jugs by the handle then hang them in the shed...that way they take up very little space, are portable and are under control.
