Peanut, Peanut Butter... peanutty



I love the plastic Peanut butter jars-They have a wide mouth, they come in custom sizes (I buy the sizes I need) and they can be frozen! I use these to store and mix salad dressing, to store and mix just a cup or two of powdered milk, as freezable storage for Stock (pre-measured) , to hold small home school items, craft supplies, and more. They fit just right inside of DH's lunch box I add a microwavable bowl and spoon and send his soup in a jar. They are great for road trips and picnics. Store water and freeze overnight to have a sealable glass of drinking water. I have stored leftover tea and coffee for cold coffee drinks. Leftover pancake and waffle mix and can be pored strait from the jar. I usually have 6-8 jars at hand all the time and can easily replace as needed! I could go on but you get the idea.
Be sure to see Shannon's site for more great ideas!

We go through at least one to three pb jars a week...I had never thought of reusing the jars! Thanks for the tip!!!!

Great idea! And they're nice and sturdy too :)

Wonderful thrifty idea! I save plastic containers too, but the peanut butter jar is a lot more sturdy than most containers. I'll have to remember this. Thanks!

I love using wide-mouthed jars for storing things, but I never used pb jars because I don't know how to get them clean enough! It's the oil from the pb that's hard to deal with. Now I have that problem with mayo jars. (I wrote an e-mail to Hellmann's complaining about their switch from glass to plastic.) How do you de-grease them? I tried the dishwasher, but they melt!

Peanuts have been found to be a very important and beneficial diet in a weight loss program. Peanut intake has the ability to curb hunger whereby a person feels filled and less hungry. The lesser consumption of food can go a long way in tackling weight gain and peanut being a nutritious food it also goes a long way in providing the body with the necessary nutrients also. http://www.phentermine-effects.com
