So, you have several glass bottles collected already. Before you take them into a recycling center, or give away for reuse, why not renew them for you own benefit? There are just so many things that you can do with it. One of them is to fill with your favorite and common home items. Here are the things of what you can fill into the glass bottles, so you can re-use and not throw them at all.
In the Living Room and Study Room
The living room and study or office room have plenty of things you can display or find. With that said, prepare some of your jars and showcase whatever those are. Here are four of the common things that you may have at home, or would like to have.
1. Pens and Pencils
For sure, you have a telephone in the living room, and a glass bottle with some pens and pencils in it is a great help. You may have remembered that there are a few times you need to write down some important information while having a conversation with someone on the phone. So, a jar with pens, and a notepad aside, then you are able to just grab one quickly. Regardless, you will definitely need some writing tools while hanging out in the living room. Of course, the office or study room must have also a separate jar with pens and pencils.
The living room is not complete without couches and a table. On the table, you can make it more enticing by having a flower vase. But instead of the expensive and antique vase, use one of the slender or tall glass bottles and have some beautiful flowers to fill the room a lot livelier.
Do you want to have a little aquarium in your living room? This is your chance to totally re-use glass bottles, the bigger ones, and fill them with some little gold fish or other small fish. Besides, it can be expensive to buy a real fish aquarium for home. Instead, you are able to save some money with a recyclable jar.
4. Office Supplies
For the office and study room, there are plenty of small items that you can put in the jars. These include staples and staplers, pairs of scissors, paper clips, as well as more pens, pencils, markers and erasers.
In the Kitchen
Now, let’s head off to the kitchen or dining room, where there are more items to find that you need to store in glass bottles. You have probably some things in mind. Well, let’s see if you have thought about the following kitchen and food items.
1. Candies and Lollipops
While you can put one jar with candies and lollipops on the table in the living room, you may still set another one in your dining. In fact, you can opt to have one more jar beside the stove, so as you wait for the food to be cooked, you may entertain yourself with some sweet gummy bears.
Do not also forget the “cookie in the jar”. Yes, you need to have some freshly baked cookies in the dining or kitchen room. Just make sure they are eaten within a few days, and refill it with new ones. This is a great idea if you have some kids in the house, who can just grab a few at anytime they want.
Different sauces, such as soy sauce, mustard, gravy, cream and onion, need rooms. They have to be equally separated too, but that’s when the glass bottles become most useful. If you have plenty of them, then that’s great – there is one room for each!
Also, there is a wide range of beans. Again, you can use jars, which can be really important. You have to separate the beans, too, according to kinds. Afterwards, you set them in the kitchen cabinet, so you can just quickly grab them whenever you need to.
5. Cooking Oil, Vinegar and Other Condiments
You also make sure there are extra jars left, so you can put every condiment into a storage room. The cooking oil, vinegar, sugar, salt and others need separate containers. So, ensure that each and every condiment is properly placed and separated.
6. Spices and Seasonings
Peeled garlic, chopped onions, black powder pepper, etc. are some common spices and seasonings that you need to organize as well. If the seasonings and spices are peeled, sliced and chopped, cooking is much easier. Whatever food you need to prepare and serve, if they are in the bottles, you are able to save more time.
In the Bedroom
Other items that need glass bottles are found in the bedroom. Obviously, you cannot put your pillows and blankets in any jar. But there are little ones, which include the following things.
A few pens and pencils are still valuable in the bedroom, but markers are definitely more useful. That’s one of the things that you can fill in the jars left.
Extra coins are other things that you may put in the glass bottles. You do not want them in your wallet, but you cannot just throw them anywhere. So, be a little organized and put those pennies in a big or medium-sized jar.
3. Cotton, Cotton Buds and First Aid Kits
The most commonly used items located in the bedroom are cotton buds, cotton, and first aid kits. So, it is much better to have a few jars that can store these items, too. It is easier to pick any of these, especially during emergency. Just open the lit and you can grab whatever you need.
This list of items is very common and familiar, as well as needful. To make things easier, you can label each glass bottle or jar and put them at the right place. Organizing these things is a great way for you to store everything you have in your house.
