Reuse, Part II

Awhile back I had shared my New Year's Resolutions with you. One of them was that I wanted to become more eco-friendly.

I hate the thought of filling our landfills with tons and tons of junk that will sit there for sooo many years to come. Of course, one of the easiest ways to prevent this is to send less waste there. So, I am doing my part in trying to reuse many items that I had previously just thrown out in the trash.

One of the latest things that I have started reusing is the little glass containers that baby food comes in. They are great for storing left over food for my daughter in them... perfect size for small portions! They are also fine in the dishwasher and the microwave.
 I reuse these containers for storing leftovers in the fridge and for storing & travelling with snacks.

Small containers like these, are also the perfect size for storing small loose objects such as pushpins, paperclips and craft embellishments. So many uses!

Oh, and if you don't have access to these nifty baby food jars, you can reuse the plastic containers from tubs of butter and some other foods. And to think, they are basically free and otherwise would have ended up sitting in a dump! That deserves a double happy dance in my book!
