Baby Food Jars, Magnets and Organization

Hello Readers. I am blessed to have a daughter and double blessed because she likes to organize. If the closet or pantry gets out of hand I will find her cleaning it out because she doesn't like the disorganized shelves. (It's awesome!)
I am also blessed with two boys. One of them is a little guy and so I have lots of baby food jars. I have found lots of uses for them. Usually I drop most of them off at my local food pantry. (They use them on a daily basis.) I keep some around the house. When I set up my new sewing area, she suggested organizing all my buttons, notions and trims. 

I filled one drawer of a plastic organizing "thing" with all my buttons and fasteners organized by color and type. It is nice to see what I have on hand and I can find things faster. 

I use them in my bathroom cabinet to hold cosmetics too. They are a nice fit for the little shelves. The jars make it easy to use all the space in my cabinet.

My daughter has her cosmetics in the same kind of cabinet but she uses magnets to keep them neat and in view. (She put this together recently and I was impressed.)

She attached a strip of self-adhesive magnet to the door. And put a small piece on the back of each item. It is a great space saver in a shared bathroom.

That's it for today. As always, thanks for reading.


  1. These are all great ideas, and how lucky you are to have such a helpful daughter!

    1. Thanks jenny_o. I love when she decides to clean out a closet. It makes my whole week! I don't know why she is like that. My other kids don't seem to mind some mess.
