2. Store craft supplies.
Mason jars are great for storing craft supplies, especially DIY Scented Gel Paints! I like to use the small size jars to round up small craft supplies –like googly eyes and buttons.
3. Use for DIY gifting.
Jars are the perfect container for a large batch of DIY homemade gifts. They keep great in storage to grab and gift when in need! I love having this Peppermint Stick Hot Cocoa Mix on hand during the holiday months.
4. Use to store leftover foods.
I personally despise stained plastic containers, and REALLY do not like searching for the right lid for the container! If you use mason jars, there are only 2 lid sizes. I throw all my lids and rings for the lids in a big bowl for storage. No more stained plastic. No more searching for the right lid.
5. Use for food storage in the pantry.
I love the look of jars in the pantry. Small jars are great for herbs. Larger jars are great for grains. They stack nicely and look so pretty!
7. Use them to organize your healthy eating and motivate you to eat more plants!
Turn your refrigerator into a work of art where you family will want to come, snack on a rainbow of fruits and vegetables, and get excited about it! I don’t know about you, but when my veggies are prepped and staring at me through the glass of the jar, it makes me grab and eat! Jars also make your veggies super portable. On the go in a rush? Grab a jar and go!
8. Use for utensil storage.
I love keeping my wooden clips in a mason jar. I also keep straws in open jars to grab quick for smoothies.
9. Organize your salad ingredients.
Use them to create an at-home salad bar that stays fresh and beautiful for days in the refrigerator! You can easily put a ready-to-eat layered salad in a jar that will keep for days — just make sure you put the salad dressing at the bottom. When I have all my salad toppings in jars and ready to go, it makes my goal of eating a big, leafy green salad at least once a day very do-able. Don’t forget to grab the jars of slivered nuts, dried cranberries & sesame sticks in the pantry to sprinkle on top and make your salad on to look forward to!
I hope these images of beautiful magazines and beautiful jars motivate you to do some of your own spring organizing and cleaning. Remember to spring clean your bodies by eating good foods, too!
