So been thinking what you can do with a peanut butter jar. So instead of using my over worked brain I decided to just Google it and see what it came up with. So here are two lists of what you can do with a peanut butter jar.
My favourite is the nuts and bolts storage system. All the men in my family (besides my hubby who is not very handy) all have their nuts and bolts in old peanut butter jars. I wonder wether that is a kiwiana thing or not? Maybe not as the U tube clip was done by an American.
Anyhow I hope you make good use of your peanut butter jar and not just throw it in the dump.
Just an idea but wouldn’t it be great if the jars were made from sugar like the new ecostore bottles! ( I am not getting paid to promote that for ecostore but love the direction they are going in).
Join in the Pic’s Peanut Butter Cook & Craft Challenge linky and you will receive a jar of Pic’s Peanut Butter and a jar of Pic’s new peanut oil… What could be better?
Create a recipe using Pic’s Really Good Peanut Butter or craft something with the Pic’s jar itself. Write your post and add an image. Add this post to our Linky below and you will be sent a really good reward – a 380g jar of Pic’s Peanut Butter and a bottle of Pic’s Peanut Oil (a natural extension to the Pic’s brand).
What to do with your Pic’s Peanut Butter jar?
So here is the list:
- Store your muesli
- Feeder and food for birds
- Make your own peanut butter (see Michelles recipe)
- Pour wax in, along with a wick and use as an outside candle
- Use as paint jars for the kids
- Use as Cupboard storage jars to store flour, rice etc
- Storage for nuts and bolts – see this youtube clip
Check out these ideas from ‘nine lives of the peanut butter jar’:
1. The life of a peanut butter jar begins on the supermarket shelf, filled with your favorite brand. When emptied and cleaned out, you and your family can use it in many practical ways.
2. It’s a perfect container for displaying a prized marble collection.
3. It can be used to store leftovers…
4. …and to mix a batch of concentrated juice.
5. It can be taken back to the store to buy foods in bulk, such as honey, maple syrup, and even more peanut butter.
6. The jars also make great cookie cutters.
7. Take the jar on your next fishing trip to carry live bait.
8. Then use it to show off the beautiful flowers you picked for the dinner table when the fishing is done.
9. When you collect too many peanut butter jars, be sure to recycle the extras. Did you know you can even return the glass jar to Pic at the Nelson Saturday Market for a 50c donation to The Brook Waimarama Wildlife Sanctuary.
