How I’ve Been Using Mason Jars in my Kitchen

These simple little glass jars are used for so many things.

Home and wedding decor, floral vases, makeup brush holder, overnight oatmeal…and of course, I can’t leave out this little super stars original use, to preserve food.

It’s the humble but oh so popular, mason jar!

I love using mason jars (or any recycled jar for that matter) for floral decorations around my home. They are so easy to work with and always turn out so pretty. But today I’m sharing a few simple but very useful ways that I’ve been making use of them around my kitchen for the last few months.

Let’s get started!

How I’ve Been Using Mason Jars in my Kitchen

Knick Knack Container:

I realized that I was always looking for basic items when I’m in the kitchen like scissors and pens. So for a few months now I’ve been keeping those items right on the countertop in a mason jar next to my coffee machine. It may not be the usual spot where scissors and pens may be stored in a kitchen but having them so handy has been really helpful since I’m always writing out to do’s or shopping lists in the kitchen and opening up packages.

This youtuber that I’ve watched for years, Tiffany D, once mentioned how when she organizes around her house she keeps things where she knows she is using them as opposed to organizing like items together. Like maybe storing your hair appliances in the bedroom as opposed to the bathroom, like I do, because I know that that’s where I like to use them.

Baking Soda Container:

I occasionally like to use baking soda to give my sink a good cleaning but I’m usually lazy about reaching for it under the sink or where ever else I would store it.  So I needed to make it really easy to get to when I needed it (especially at the end of the day when I’m usually tired and wanting to get to bed 🙂

A mason jar has worked out perfectly for my baking soda.

Vege Oil Container:

I’ve been using a mason jar as a temporary container for my vegetable oil. I had to get rid of the bottle I was using for a few years now because it was getting really yucky in certain areas that I couldn’t get into to clean properly.

I’ve been meaning to buy a new oil container but honestly, I kind of like how the oil looks in the mason jar, so I’m not in too much of a rush to replace it just yet. And what’s nice is that it’s easier to keep the mason jar clean compared to my old bottle.

Left Over Coffee Container:

I always have coffee in the morning (thank the good Lord for coffee, its so yummy) and sometimes I like making extra coffee for the next day. I find a glass container to be perfect for storing my coffee, it doesn’t get stained and keeps my coffee fresh for the next morning.

Just an extra fun idea: My husband was actually using a large glass jar a few months ago (not a mason jar but something very similar) when he was having an iced coffee kick. He would make a big pot of coffee or have me make it for him and we’d put it in the fridge so that he had iced coffee for a few days to take to work in the morning. Surprisingly, it always tasted fresh!

Ok friends, well that’s it for this one! I hope you enjoyed my 4 simple mason jar uses in my kitchen. If you have any fun or interesting way to use mason jars in your kitchen, or around your home please share in the comments below. I’d love to hear it!
