Photo Friday ... Little Things

 This is the jar that I keep little things in ... it sits on a shelf in my kitchen!  Things such as individual packets of jelly, etc that are put on your tray when you order fast food and things like the packets of organic black tea seen in the jar that came from the freeosk at Sam's Club. There's a whole 'hodge podge' of things like this in this jar, it really is a treasure trove of different food related items that come in handy on a regular basis.


Here it is with it's lid ... by the way this jar and lid came from a thrift store!


Do you have a 'hodge podge' jar in your kitchen?

  1. I have a huge jar like that with a red knob. I keep assorted tea bags and other beverage related items in it. It belonged to my grandmother and it was always full of store bought cookies which was a wonder to us as children because we only had homemade ones. Poor us! I have a large pasta sauce jar that I keep jelly and condiment packs in because I can easily pack it for meals when we travel.

    1. That's a good idea too Lana, keeping them in a pasta sauce jar ... which is portable! Great Tip!

  2. I also have a couple of jars like this - one for sweet (extra pkgs. of sugar, jam etc.) and savoury (pkgs. of mustard, mayo, salt & pepper) etc. I never take handfuls, it's just the odd one or two that are leftover but it adds up and it's handy for picnics or when I need to take some sandwiches or such along on a day out.

    1. Margie, that's what we do, whatever is left of what they put on the tray is what we bring home. That's a good idea to separate the sweet from the savoury!

  3. I do not, but I have a bag in the freezer with the packets of spices and cheese and peppers that the pizza place hands out. I noticed that horseradish sauce packets are now in my fridge. I think my son brought those home. Horseradish doesn't like me!

    1. Laura, so you have a hodge podge bag in your refrigerator... it serves the same purpose!!! It sounds like your son is helping you keep it stocked too!

  4. I have a big jar like that. It sits on the counter and we keep granola bars, hot chocolate packets, individual wrapped cookies, etc in it. I have had this jar for 40 years. I originally bought it to to put my powdered laundry soap in. I loved the look of it setting on the shelf by the washer. I started using liquid detergent shortly after and the jar became my whatever jar. Paula in Kansas P.S. Are you done with the posts for the "Our Journey to a Mortgage Free Home. I really enjoyed those posts too.

    1. Paula, I also have another one that sits beside this one that holds larger packets of things! I am done with the series on 'Our Journey to a Mortage Free Home' until we complete other projects. I will post about those as they are complete so it really is an open ended series as one never gets done working on a house project like this.

  5. I have 2! One is in my fridge. Our old, long dead fridge had an egg holder. Not with the little egg slots, but I guess we were supposed to trust that if we put all the eggs on top of each other in this plastic bin, they were supposed to be okay. I never tried to find out. I could only imagine my husband letting the door slam one time and SPLAT! Scrambled raw eggs....with shell bits for a condiment! So, I put that bin to work as a catch-all for condiment packets....ketchup, mustard, mayo, hot sauce, kraut, or whatever.
    In my pantry, I have a 1970's era Tupperware ice bucket that would only hold about 12 cubes. My aunt gave it to me for my hope chest. That has become the pantry catch all for coffee, tea, & hot chocolate packets that I always end up with.

    1. Debby, I agree with you, no eggs in the refrigerator door. At my house that is just a disaster waiting for an opportunity to happen!

  6. Dear Patsy,
    I don't know why I never thought of this! Such a good idea, and simple, too. Our packets are randomly scattered in the refrigerator, pantry, vehicle, and my purse and it drives me crazy lol. Time to pull out a jar! Thanks!
    Love, Kelsey

    1. Kelsey, that used to be my method too but not anymore. I love having all those little packets in one place now!
