Smart Jars--Smart Idea

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.

  1. Precious picture! I especially love the adorable little sturdy legs with the droopy socks. My twin daughters had beautiful little legs like hers, which have turned into long, slender ones.

    1. Thank you Sandra! The kids' stances and expressions (and socks) were why we chose this pic. Hope you have a wonderful holiday!
