10 Simple & Charming Ways to Use Mason Jars in Everyday Life + 2 Cool Recipes

Mason jars have made a serious comeback in recent years and are a trendy way to carry your food and reduce waste. They are simple to use, affordable, and can also act as a decor piece in your bathroom or kitchen! 

You may also have some more laying around than you think! Do you ever buy Classico tomato sauce or other glass products from the grocery store? Many of these products are actually standard mason jar sizes and can be washed and reused! 

My top ten reasons I love mason jars:

  1. They are affordable
  2. They are dishwasher safe and easy to clean
  3. They keep food fresh
  4. They are clear and make it easy to see what’s inside
  5. Most fit into cup holders
  6. Free of toxins unlike many plastic containers
  7. They are super versatile and come in various sizes
  8. They are reusable
  9. You can easily replace the lids if you misplace them
  10. They look cute!

If you are wondering how to use mason jars in your everyday life, try these simple uses below: 

  1. Water drinking glass
  2. Storing nuts and seeds
  3. Storing flour
  4. Carrying smoothies and juices
  5. As a Q tip holder
  6. A pen holder
  7. To carry coffee
  8. As a flower vase
  9. To hold my reusable straws
  10. To make chia pudding, overnight oats and mason jar salads

My challenge to YOU:

Slowly start replacing worn out and unsafe plastic containers with small, medium, and large glass mason jars. Not sure where to find them? Head to your local hardware store where you will likely find a wide variety of sizes at an affordable price.
