Organization: Glass Jars

After seeing this photo:

I knew I wanted to organize my food cupboard with glass jars.
Isn't it gorgeous?!

Well, I went shopping at Target and decided to check out how much their glass containers were.

$13! For one!
Too much!

So, I checked out Wal-Mart
$13 for 3.
Better, but still too much.

I then went to Old Time Pottery.
None were the right size.
Either too teeny or too massive.

Alas, I found a great deal online!

$2.99 each!
But, did I mention they were from IKEA?
That glorious store that is no where close to KC?!
Whose shipping is outrageous?!

So yeah..... no luck.

Today I decided to venture to my favorite thrift.

7 jars for $7!!!
That's what I'm talkin' bout!
Their prices ranged from $.25 to $1.98.
They will be perfect for holding the bulk items we have started buying at Whole Foods.
And it'll look so pretty!

While I was there I also spotted this red lantern for $1.98 that I thought would be perfect out on our deck.

Not too shabby!
Well, I am off to go stick the containers in the dishwasher. Organizing the kitchen is my project for next week. These will sure come in handy!!!


  1. I have those Ikea jars!!! I love them! They are wonderful for holding baking goods. The lids are actually air tight too!

  2. Oh ....I am so jealous!!! I wish we had an IKEA! Ive never even been to one! Just drooled over their website!

  3. The website does NO justice to the store!! When I heard we were getting one hear in Charlotte last year, I check out the site and was not impressed.... but going to the store.... now that IS impressive!

  4. Oh, I'm sooooo jealous! I'm going to have to take a trip somewhere with one just to experience that greatness!


I love comments! Thanks for leaving me one! I read each and everyone one! xoxo Jenny Free
