I'm the type of person that keeps things around the house with the thought "this might have a use for something, someday, I just don't know what right now". Case in point, empty glass yoghurt pot jars -you know, the luxurious ones that you only ever buy when they're on offer in Sainsbury's. Too good to just discard, but slightly useless. However, I've put mine to good use...
A common scene in the flat, my multiple earrings scattered across the windowsill after a panicky morning trying to get myself together for the day. I find earrings so hard to store, I lose them on a daily basis from them getting swept up never to be found.
Take your clean glass yoghurt jar and pop those earrings in, safe and sound. They also look really pretty, I think if you've got lovely jewellery or a statement pair of shoes, make a feature of them. These yoghurt jars make cute little tea light holders and are perfect to set jelly in if you're having a party.
What do you guys reuse? Have you ever saved the little glass jars?
