I’ve always loved glass jars and have collected quite a few of them over the years – yes I buy stuff for the jars, doesn’t everyone! A few years ago I got some great deals on Mason jars (one was missing in the box of 12 and was discounted 50% – got two of those deals!!) and am only now starting to use them everywhere.
I use it in the kitchen to store spices, coffee, tea, jams, peanut butter, almost anything really. I use them for storing my cleaning products – my DIY sink cleanser (I’ll have to share the recipe one day), baking soda, etc.
I’ve recently gotten some mason jars that have handles so you can use them for drinking – got two clear ones with these cool tops on them that you can put straws through (not my photo)
Great for summer drinks … just so much fun to drink from a cup like this!
Then I couldn’t resist 2 more (on clearance for $.80 ea) one in hot pink and the other painted with flowers on it!
Something like the above! So cute!!
So I was happy with all these lovely jars…then yesterday I saw it….
Different tops for mason jars…OMG and the best was it was in the dollar store and two come in a pack for $1.25!!!
(I had seen the one with holes in Michael’s but they were not $1.25 😉 )
So the ones with holes are great for Parmesan cheese, powdered sugar. I actually am using it for my kitchen cleanser…it’s fabulous!!
So how do you use mason jars…or if not WHY NOT?? There are tons of ideas out there!
