Ok then, here goes. I have a jar addiction. There, I said it. I save jars. I cannot help myself, I just cannot seem to throw them out. Last year this basket was overflowing and Dan said I had to downsize so I sat down on the floor and took them all out and got ready to part with some. After a considerable time, I was able to throw out 1! Yes, ONE!!! I couldn't bear to get rid of any others. I think it steams from my Nana, she had converted her coal cellar into storage and I can still remember all the jars she had in there. Now, I am sure that during her lifetime and living thru the depression it was necessary to save all your glass, as well as tin foil and such, but we don't live in that kind of world now and these jars can easily be recycled into new jars, but what would happen if I needed one of these beauties and I let them go? I normally store things in the fridge and pantry in glass. I prefer that over plastic. Like I prefer brown paper bags over the plastic ones. I like to use jars for mixing ingredients while cooking, like flour and water, and I also use them to hold crafting supplies. So, when I see a pretty jar in the market I see all the possibilities that jar can have with me, and I am really disappointed when manufacturers change their jars from glass to plastic. How sad!!! I even have tiny mini mason jars over the mini lights on my Christmas tree. You see, I really am a jar addict.
