Lately it has seemed like I am always needing new storage containers for food. It has occurred to me that I can use all those wonderful jars that generally get thrown away. So instead of buying more containers, I am saving the jars, and they work really well. I save plastic containers also, mostly from Smart Balance. I try to store used cooking oils in them, and when they are full, in the trash they go. I also store food for the fridge in them. My goal is to severely reduce the amount of trash going to the curb. We have pickup twice a week, and I would like to regularly have only one can maximum per week. We don't have recycling here, so whatever we do is strictly up to us.

A question--will all the used glass jars work in the freezer? I have wondered if they might break.
