Whether it is your work desk area, your at-home library, or your kitchen… You can put old glass containers with screw top lids to use, as every day containers to organize various items.
1. You save money on buying some fancy container for your items at a store. Instead of throwing away that empty jar of jelly, mayo, or coffee tin… Why not reuse it?!
2. When you reuse your own container for a new purpose, you save it from going into the trash, a landfill, or even worse, The Great Pacific Garbage Patch! Plus, not only does your old jar get a new lease on life as a coin collector, button holder, or container for rice or candies….you can paint and label the outside as you see fit. I like stickers, so feel free to slap some on your jar for a unique look.
3. If you have an obsession with containers like glass jars and tins, like I do, you can give in to your desire to amass containers without the guilt of spending money. Reusing old glass jars for drinking glasses, creating mini terrariums, or using to house candles, as a planter, for keeping potpourri, tea, etc. will get you in touch with your inner interior decorator/domestic side.
Can you think of some good reasons to reuse an old glass jar or container?
Good Luck in Your Ventures to be Frugal & Green about Your Every Day Choices!
