Glass Jars: Our Favorite Thing to Repurpose

Glass Jars: Our Favorite Thing to Repurpose

We don't cook that often but when we do, we always make sure to save glass jars for repurposing. They're sturdier than plastic bags for toting items and look great in a group displaying flowers or candles. Our favorite ways to repurpose empty glass jars after the jump!

  • We reuse glass jars to store loose food contents like coffee, rice, flour and sugar
  • Use them in the laundry room to stow detergent and Oxy Clean
  • They make the perfect vase for a bouquet peonies or a single flower
  • A large group of glass jars to hold tea lights makes a big impact
  • We love a large empty jar for safe keeping of change for a rainy day
  • Mason jars are the perfect size for serving cold beverages on a hot day
  • Store craft and art supplies in an office space with homemade labels
  • Use smaller glass jars in the bathroom medicine cabinet for holding hair ties, safety pins and lip balms
  • A medium sized glass jar is the perfect size for storing dog food when we take our pet on road trips
  • We also like lining up a row on the mantlepiece for displaying your favorite collections
