Some great ideas from a blog that I follow...

For a little while I've been following some blogs via email. This has worked really well while I have been so busy working. Every day I can find time to check my emails but lately haven't always found the time to check in on my blog's dashboard. (I do plan to catch up on a lot of reading of blogs when I'm able, such as next weekend)
I want to share a link to a blog that I follow called 'Frugal and Thriving'. If you're like me, you hate putting excess jars/bottles into the recycling bin, especially all those Moccono (a brand of coffee) jars. F&T's blog post showcases a number of ideas and links for using jars creatively. I loved this post!

We've been having slightly crazy weather here over the past few weeks. Lots of clouds that come up quickly and bring a few showers. The garden is full of weeds and mosquitoes are a bit of a problem in the evening. The weather is getting more like what it was when I was a girl...a definite rainy season in the subtropics of the state where I live. That old saying comes to mind...'the more things change, the more they stay the same!'

I use my Moccona jars for storing my olives in brine because the clip seal jars ond other types have metal lids and clips that the salt effects. They are also good for Moroccan style preserved lemons too.

I save my coffee jars for jam.
I can't bear to throw jars away, but I have to watch out for my husband as he loves to clear them.
I need a pantry like my Mum had.

Ooh I need to go and have a look. My mum saves all her jars to make marmalade each year.
