  • We all have them: leftover jars from spaghetti sauce, mustard, jams. Sure, you can recycle them, but can't you use them for something?
    Here's a list of ways you can use your leftover jars beyond the recycling bin:
    • Tea lights: Place a small tea candle into a jar for a quick mood light.
    • Spices: Fill a jar with your favorite seasoning or make your own.
    • Arrangements: Pick flowers and have a cute arrangement near your bed.
    • Keep herbs fresh: Fill halfway with water, put herbs in like you would a flower arrangement and put in fridge ... herbs will keep longer — I promise!
    • Make dressing: Place the ingredients into a jar with a lid and shake, ready to go.
    • Storage: Do a Martha Stewart and use jars to store buttons, nails, and any small bit. Just make sure you label things.
