If your kitchen is feeling a little chaotic lately, it could be time to do some organizing. I’ve been doing my own kitchen organization projects over the past couple of weeks, and I’m always amazed at what a difference even the smallest effort can make. Today we’ll be talking about kitchen organization, but we’ll be focusing on one organizational tool specifically: mason jars. And yes, I’m officially counting mason jars as an organizing tool, and I bet you will be too once you’ve read this post!
Today I’m sharing 17 brilliant and simple ways you can use mason jars to help organize your kitchen. There are limitless possibilities when it comes to using mason jars around the kitchen! In this post you’ll see how to use them for your morning coffee, for storing spices, for cleaning and cooking, and much, much more! I’ll start by sharing some ideas that I’ve shared previously on OGT, and then I’ll share some bright ideas I found around the web. 🙂 So let’s get started!
1. Mason Jar Lid Labels
I like to store stuff from boxes in mason jars to eliminate packaging and make it look a little nicer. But sometimes it can be hard to tell what’s in the jar just by looking at it. An easy way to solve this issue is to use the box to make a quick label for the top of your jar!
Simply trace the shape of the canning ring onto the product name on the box. Then use a pair of scissors to cut out the box, set it on top of the jar lid, and use the canning ring to secure it in place. With the label clearly displayed on top of the jar, you’ll never have to wonder what’s stored in there!
You can do this with all of your coffee fixings (like creamer, sugar, cinnamon, etc.) and make a cute coffee station on your countertop.
