We all have a way of our way of organizing things.  Some people use bins.  Others of us use drawers, filing cabinets, bookshelves, baskets, magazine holders, etc.  I have discovered that my thing is jars.  I love clear jars of all shapes and sizes, and I really love mason jars.  Their uses are unbelievable.

The thing about mason jars is that they are so inexpensive.  You can get twelve solid mason jars for about $7.99.  About four times a year, the Sunday’s paper has coupons in them for $2 and $3 off, which is a steal.  The bigger mason jars come in six packs, and there are usually coupons for those as well.  You really can’t beat the price.

I use the smaller mason jars anywhere from using them as drinking glasses, to storing spices, coconut flakes, chia seeds, and nutritional yeast.  The larger ones are used for grains, flour, sugar, different types of meal, legumes, beans, and cereal.  For some reason,  over the years, cereal boxes seem to remain halfway open, causing the cereal to get stale, and the remains to waste out.  I don’t have that problem anymore.

Mason jars are simple and functional.  And of course, I like the asethetic of those as well.  I would love to hear about what you use that keeps things simple and functional in your home.  Have a blessed rest of your weekend!

Now we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this surpassingly great power is from God and not from us.
