Although I like to think of myself as reasonable, sometimes I buy things that are not particularly necessary or even practical. Last summer, the beginning of my Pyrex obsession would be an example, as I couldn't pass up ANY Pyrex, it was scary. But, another spree of unpractical purchases surrounded Ball mason jars. I couldn't resist their vintage style, and clearly they are perfect for dry food storage. However, I am in college, moving glass items is not ideal, in fact quite annoying. So, to once again convince myself (and my mother) that the collection of jars I've accumulated are worth moving around I decided to gather a few clever uses for mason jars, see them after the jump.
