Swapping Tupperware for Balls


Ball Wide Mouth Jars that is.  And – Not Tupperware – but Stay at Home Mom Tupperware commonly known as Left Over Sour Cream Containers with  mismatched lids.





I started to store our leftovers in the clear Kerr and Ball jars.  It seemed that they would get eaten, and not turn into science experiments.  Chicken Enchilada Filling, stored in front with Tortillas – found their way to a snack.  Downsizing a 1/2 gallon jar of Jalapenos helped save space in the fridge. BBQ Sauce stored in the wide mouth Kerr made it easier to dish out at the table, and easer to store in the fridge as well.

Today I broke down and bought a case of Pint Wide Mouth Ball Jars, Wide Mouth Plastic lids, and regular plastic lids as well.


We enjoy using the jars for our drinks – they make great Tea and Water containers.  We’ll make a huge batch of Tea, then fill the jars and put them in the fridge.  Cool Wonderment.

If you don’t have room for Ball Quart or Pint Jars, which was my excuse for not buying them, try going through the shelf/drawer with the mismatched SAHM Tupperware Collection and see what sort of space you could find.
