1. Lose it and Move it. Use two jars...one jar contains pennies (one per pound that you would like to lose). The other jar contains one pound/dollar for each pound that you've lost.
2. Strike a Cord. Use a jar to keep important cords handy. This one sits on my desk, and holds the USB cord for my camera.
"What if I don't feel like painting anything?" you ask.......
5. Lace it Up, and Keep it Together. Wrap lace around the threads at the top and attach with a hot glue gun to make the perfect little desk tidy. Great for paper clips, rubber bands, and writing utensils!
I'm not kidding when I say I've got these jars all over..... I also use one as a toothbrush holder for Eli...and to round up some of the smaller stuff that hangs out in our junk drawer. I'm all about the handy (FREE) storage!
So what do you think? Are you going to give new life to a pile of jars that you've been collecting?!
