I have always saved and reused jars, especially glass jars. Once the original contents of the jars (coffee, jam, fruit, etc.) have been used, the jars are washed, the labels are soaked off, and the jars are recycled and reused to store other items, such as bulk bought spices, cookies, and homemade chutney.
I prefer glass jars because they are easy to wash clean and can be sterilized if necessary. But I'll reuse some plastic jars, too.
I am recycling, and since I don't need to buy storage containers, I am saving money at the same time.
Anyone else reuse glass jars and bottles?
I save my glass jars too.. Great for storing things.ReplyDelete
Yes, and they can be decorated to look more uniform, although I don't bother to do so.Delete
Yes! I save jars for my jams and chutneys. I have friends and family who also save theirs for me. If I get too many, I know others who use empty jars, so I pass them on. Nothing gets wasted! Before I started saving my jars, I thought I didn't generate that many but now I'm shocked at the volume in general.ReplyDelete
Yes, I, too, accumulate quite a few jars over the course of the year! I keep the empty jars in a box in the garage until needed! :)Delete
