Triumph march of the screw top jar

To get a screw top jar is very easy: They just come to you. If you buy mixed pickles, fruit puree, yoghurt, pesto, smoothies or blue kraut (is this even the correct English word?), you get one free. Rinse them carefully, let them dry, storage them at a clean place (and don’t put the lid on again while they are not used). I put nearly everything in glasses: food, presents, … even my paperclips and ear plugs are stored in glasses. If you are gifted with creativity you can also turn the jars into little masterpieces like plant pots or lanterns.

Don’t throw away your children’s old crafting supplies

In this picture you can see what members of my familiy created with old crafting supplies from our childhood days.

No. 1 is a beautiful mini lantern that is made out of an old glass and some mosaic stones.

No. 2 is a dried shamrock with incredible five leaves that we put into an old wooden frame.

None of the things you see was bought, we only used what was still in the old crafting drawer – even the glue was still there.

It’s more than shopping bags…

Don’t just take bags out shopping – take containers too! More and more shops are selling products loose and you can bring your own container to put them in.
