Creative Ways to Repurpose Baby Food Jars

Baby Food Jar Candle Holders
Empty glass baby food jars are the perfect size for holding a votive candle! All you have to do is decorate them. You can crochet yarn, of any color, around the jar to make a delicate, lacy, candle holder. Or, you can wrap the jar in a lacy doily that will let a lot of light shine through it. Wind a sprig from your Christmas tree around the top of the baby food jar for a nicely scented Christmas centerpiece.

Baby Food Jar Gardens
Glass baby food jars can be reused as a small, decorative, planter. Turn a bunch of empty baby food jars into an herb garden that sits in your kitchen window. You can also use the jars to grow a windowsill flower garden. Wrap a colorful ribbon around the jar, or use some decorative duck tape to jazz it up.

Baby Food Jar Spice Holders
It’s not exactly a spice rack, but it is the most important components of one. Gazing In has an excellent blog post that shows you how to take empty baby food jars and reuse them to store your spices. Label each one, so you will know what it is holding. You can decorate them to match your kitchen. All the spices will be held in jars that are a uniform size, just like they would be in a store bought spice rack.

Baby Food Gift Items
Repurposed baby food jars can be used as lovely gifts. Fill one with bath salts decorate the lid, and you have a really cute “stocking stuffer”. Fill a baby food jar with potporri and cover it with a doily for an instant air freshener. The possibilities are endless!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
