Reader Suggestion Friday- Reuse those glass jars

Anonymous wrote me! The suggestion was to remind us not to throw away those glass jars that come with jelly, pickles, etc. but reuse them for drinking glasses.

My grandma always had jars to drink out of. It's also pretty cool if you have a country themed kitchen/dining room to use those jelly jars with embossed fruit and words on the sides for your drinking glasses.

Of course, you can reuse them for putting in dried goods. Like, when I get to the bottom of a cracker box or rice bag, instead of keeping them in bulky packaging, I transfer them to a jar. Since it is clear, it gives me a visual reminder to use it, and it's prettier!

Reader Suggestion Friday is a new installment for this blog! If you want to share a way you reuse things, look in the side column. I have put in a Reader Suggestion area where you can email me to show off your reusing/crafty/frugal ideas with my readers.

I am so glad to see that I am not the only one who does not throw away glass jars. My Mom is always laughing at me for saving them, I can use them all of the time. They come in handy.
