Don’t throw away mason jars, use them to store dry goods in your kitchen! They’re free, practical and so useful.

Mason Jars are so practical!

I’m not much of a collector, but the one thing I do collect and keep dear to my heart are Mason Jars (especially ones like these jars that date back somewhere between 1930 and 1950). I love the simplicity of them, their classic look, how they stand the test of time and how many things you can use them for.

Perfect for dry pantry storage.

Mason jars are absolutely perfect for storing dry pantry items like cornstarch, barley, cocoa, oat bran, sugar, coconut, baking soda and so much more. I also like to use them for non-kitchen things like paper clips, elastics, matches and more.

Label Details

I went to Michaels and found a roll of chalkboard sticker paper and a label punch to make cute labels for each of the jars. Then I used a white chalkboard marker to write the ingredient on the front.

  1. Jo-Anna, I went to Michael’s and purchased all of the supplies, but am unsure how to affix the labels to the jars? I’m excited to get started! Thanks.

  2. Hi Jo-Anna, I’m not feeling very smart now…I just checked and mine is the same! Thanks so much for the response. I love your blog!

  3. I do not live close to a Michaels, but found the blackboard labels from the Martha Stewart Collection at Staples last weekend. I had fun filling my jars and labeling them. I love the look! 🙂

  4. This is such a pretty idea and easy with the roll of chalkboard paper. I am soon to have a new pantry and using these on my jar collection would be so pretty! Thanks 🙂

  5. I have though about using the big plastic containers that coffee comes in to make kitchen canisters. I was planning to cover the labels, with fabric material, or shelf paper that would match the color scheme of the kitchen. And give them as gifts. I was planning to use fabric paint to write the names of the contents. After reading your idea about the mason jars. I am planning to redo my pantry. This is a great idea, and you can see at a glance, what’s in each jar. Great idea. Thanks

  6. Great idea. I have old jars that were my grandmas. My husband also has jars. When my sister- in- law moved she gave us her jars and when we moved to a new house the old owners left us their jars!! Now I have another use besides canning. I have a large pantry in my house and also love the look of the jars, and the blackboard label is a great idea. Thank you
