At our base commissary, the 18 oz. Jif peanut butter is usually the cheapest per ounce. So that is the size we have always bought while living here.
This little jar is so handy for holding crayons after the crayon box won't hold the shape anymore.
It's just the right size for a bank- and the bonus is it's see-through and motivating to see all the pennies saved.
You can make "I spy" kits with them and super glue the lid shut.
Store honey. This Fall we bought raw local honey in bulk (150 lbs.) and I've found that these are better for refilling versus our old honey bottle and bear- because they have foil on them and can't go in the microwave. Here in the Frozen North, the honey is constantly thickened to the point of not being able to squeeze the honey bottle/bear. So, we use the cleaned out peanut butter jars and can microwave if we want, or just spoon out the right amount. VERY convenient.
Store stickers and other little odds and ends that five year old girls love to collect.
Store a comb and a package of ponytail holders or scrunchies.
I'm in love with these handy little jars. They definitely work for me. For a myriad of good ideas, visit the Works for Me Wednesday carnival at http://www.rocksinmydryer.net/
