Blame it on Pinterest

First I want to say, I love Pinterest.

You know what I’m talking about …


They are everywhere.

Ways to remove the labels, up cycle them, dye them with food color, plant your plants in them, and use them in your garden, wedding, baby shower, pantry, and bathroom…

glass jars 5-27


Are you actually going to do any of these things?


OK, if you are you need to have a plan and some control.

Translation: You can only have 3 of these “Projects” at a time.

News flash you can always get more glass jars.

Toddler ~ Hello you have baby food jars running out your ears.

Mason Jars Are Ending this Charade Once and for All

And that is the crux of the problem. You have jars running out your ears. They are in every nook, cranny, they have lids, or not.

Look, I get it. Really I do. I use glass jars.

My husband makes his own spice rubs so we have some of glass

BUT I don’t have a crazy large collection. I have a few jars that I actually use.

I want you to take them all out of all the places they hide.

Then purge.

Designate a small spot for glass jars. When you have more jars than fits in your space you must recycle them.

You can do this. I did and it’s OK.

I am from Oklahoma. Now living the dream in Arizona. I'm a sassy, creative and outspoken southern gal. I believe that if you can read you can go anywhere. One of my favorite sayings is "If you knew you could not fail what would you do?" I enjoy helping other people. My friends know that I’m the queen of useless trivial knowledge and I will not hesitate to use it.

      1. What about one the popcorn kernels? the roasted almonds? the walnuts and the pine nuts? Or an empty quart jar to take soup to a sick friend?

  1. This is so me! I get this really nice cottage cheese from a local farm and they use glass jars to package it in and it’s just so nice it’s a battle to get rid of them. I do use them to store spices and such, but really, I don’t need to keep every single one!

  3. That’s why I don’t visit Pinterest, I’d drive myself insane trying to keep up and then having to get rid of it all because I don’t like clutter!! HA…My nephew’s wife is on Pinterest all the time and she gets amazing recipes…I just can’t! hee hee…

  4. I actually just purged a cabinet full. I didn’t realize how many I actually had set aside for “projects” until I needed one for something. I went looking for an average sized jar and realized there were just too many for me to ever actually use them all, so they went straight into the recycling bin!
