I like to use things for other things when the thing for which they were originally intended is a thing of the past. Yankee Candle jars are great for this because they are a good size, strong, and have a sealed lid. I use them for q-tips in the bathroom because the lid seals out the moisture and steam from showers. Here, you can see how my daughter uses one for her pencils. Colored pencils look even better.
The Atlas jar was previously on the supermarket shelf filled with tomato sauce. I can’t remember the brand, but I like them because there are both small and large, this one holding 12 ounces while larger ones hold 24 ounces. If you drop one and it breaks, they’re very easy to replace. I also use a large one for filling the coffee maker every morning. On the sides are lines that measure the ounces in even increments.
One of my friends calls them my “West Virginia” glasses. No offense.
And here’s the jar before I went all “Wes’ Virginny” on it. Best way to get the label off is to lie it face down in something full of water so the label is under warm water for about a half hour. Take it out, and the label will scrape off easily with a butter knife, but there will still be some glue. Steel wool will take care of the rest.
