Unclutter Your Kitchen with Jars

Cupcake Wrapper and Other Kitchen Storage Ideas Using Jars

If you have a small kitchen with limited storage it can be hard when it comes to organizing.  

You need a place for everything but sometimes that’s just not possible.

One option is to decorate using pretty jars.  This is a great way to unclutter.  

You can leave the jars out on countertops or shelves, easily see what’s inside of them and if you group items by color or purpose you can create an interesting flow that’s eye-catching and pretty.

Storage Jars

I had a large vintage looking jar that I had bought a few years ago and I had never used it.  

I originally intended to put it in my craft room and use it to hold ribbon, ric rac, etc., which would be great, but I had a real need for smarter organizing in my kitchen and that’s where organizing with glass jars can be a pretty and inexpensive option.

Rather than having cupcake wrappers in a big zip-lock it is much easier to see what I have and to keep the wrappers from getting damaged, bent, or smashed.

 I found the other, smaller jars, at Target in the Dollar Spot and added cookie cutters and cookie stamps to those.   I found that I don’t keep buying new cupcake wrappers for every holiday and occasion because with just a glance I can see what I have.

Do you have any other ideas for using jars for storage? I’d love to hear them!

You can find these jars at Marshalls. I use mine for the cupcake cups also for chocolate chips, small bottles of vanilla (and others) and any baking supplies that fit in the jar. I have jars of all sizes. Pasta looks great and you can tell at a glance what kind to cook.

I am right with you {love papers} of all kinds. I store my cupcake liners like that. Just the other day I wanted to buy some pretty floral ones & I let my young daughter talk me out of it. She said I still have liners. You know at some point I will get them or other spring liners to drop in there ;) I love your jar. Mine isn't vintage but I am on the look out for some.

Thanks for stopping by, Theresa ~ I'm with you. I love papers ~ I have far too many journals, notebooks, cardstock and cupcake liners *sigh*

I hope you find a vintage jar soon.

Hugs,

Mary Beth
