The Jars: Let me count the ways

Yesterday I wrote a post about all the tools that making doing DIY “as a girl” easier. As I walked around my house taking a mental inventory of my, most commonly used, tools … I realized I had A LOT of jars. I mean A LOT.

These jars are amazingly versatile, designed to be sterilized and hard wearing. We use them for everything.We drink out of them, they store paint, hardware, brushes, soap, you name it. So here is an addition to the DIY tools post, with all the jars.

 The Garage

Special paints, screws to be sorted, pens and pencils, nails and so much more!

Touch up paint, brushes, deck sealer, primer, and Shrek green.

The Kitchen

One of the perks of having older kids is no longer having a cupboard full of plastic cups. However, every once in awhile a friend comes over with a little one and I suddenly wish I still had a few hiding in the back of the cupboard…

Every shape and size in the cupboard, mug types and even a few wine glasses. We don't drink out of anything else (except Contigo water bottles.)
