A while back I was contacted by a company called Smart Jars and asked if I would be willing to try out their product and then write about it. I have been contacted by several companies since starting this blogging journey and I have to say that I only agree if it is something that I can get behind and would use myself. After checking out their site I knew exactly how I could use them and agreed to give them a try.
Here is an example of a Smart Jar.
As you can see, it comes with a clear plastic container with a flip top lid and a plastic base that the jar slips into.
The base fits firmly into the holes of a pegboard and can be arranged in several different ways and serve several different purposes.
I decided to use mine in a little craft area I have been working on.
(More on that later.)
I originally was keeping all my little crafting doodads in various plastic containers. They were labeled but the containers took up quite a bit of space. Space that could be used more efficiently.
So I switched them out for my new Smart Jars.
Oh and did I mention the jars came with large round labels that fit the lids?
I put them on the inside of each jar so that when I labeled the front, I could reuse the label if I ever changed the contents.
And then took some Washi tape and my label maker to make sweet little labels. As you can see, I still have a few to fill.
I am smitten with these jars, and here is why:
- They get things off of my desk/counter top.
- They are clear so that I can see the contents (and when I need to refill.)
- They are large enough to hold a significant amount.
- They are able to be moved if needed.
- Their sleek design makes it easy to stay organized!
I will show you the rest of my craft space in the new year--along with many other new projects I have up my sleeve. :) For now I am taking a few days off to enjoy the holiday season and the people that I love. Until then....
From my family to yours.
