If you use store-bought baby food, put those old jars to use instead of just throwing them away. You can use them for dry herbs and spices, and these will stay fresher longer being in glass jars.
I can’t remember how many times I went to use a spice, and it was all clumpy from moisture making it in through the plastic (I live in a very humid climate). But by repurposing baby food jars, I’m saving myself from throwing away both rank spices and jars.
The possibilities for using these small jars are endless. You can use them to hold sewing notions, crafts, homemade beauty products and more! What are some of your ideas?
