Ways I Love To Use Jars

My poor husband is not a jar person… I am. I might drive him just a little bit crazy with my collections, but I don’t know that I can help myself! In fact, you could possibly (probably??) say that I have a mild obsession with jars and bottles. I. LOVE. THEM. I love the way they look, I love that they are non-toxic, I love the way they keep everything separated and organized, I love that I can make and store things in them, I love that they are reusable… Are you getting the picture? Maybe I should show you some pictures of some of the many ways I use jars! 🙂


Herbal Tea

I often make and store an entire half gallon of herbal iced tea, such as my pregnancy tea, in a 2-quart mason jar! The tea in this picture is made from our own homegrown herbs– yum!

Freezing Food

I like to freeze foods, such as the pureed squash, homemade bread crumbs and homemade Fajita Chili you see here.

Craft Supply Storage

Small craft supplies can be easily organized in 1/2 pint jars! How cute is that?? 🙂

Clay Face Mask

Homemade person care products just beg for a cute jar to put them in, don’t you think? Here’s my homemade clay face mask.

Counter Storage

For dry goods that we often cook with, we have these fun jars on the counter! We also have one with Celtic sea salt. 🙂

Homemade Herbal Capsules

Jars provide a protective, air-tight place to store homemade herbal capsules.

Leftovers in a Jar

No need for cheap, toxic plastic containers to store leftovers! A jar is see-through, non-toxic and reusable!!

Buttermilk Culturing

Culturing dairy, such as buttermilk, sour cream or kefir, is easy in a jar. When it’s done, just put the lid on and pop it in the fridge!

There you have it. Some of the many ways I LOVE to use jars!
