Reuse Spice Jars

Cinnamon Sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar

Save empty spice jars and reuse them for homemade spice mixes.  I needed cinnamon sugar mix this morning for muffins.  I didn't use all the mix, so I saved the remaining cinnamon sugar in an empty sea salt shaker. 

Add a label or gift tag to your homemade spice mix to present them as gift for someone special!

  1. This is definitely a good idea, though I tend to throw-out my spice jars because I have to store them someplace in my kitchen before I have a use for them. Since my kitchen storage space is limited, this presents a problem.

    Also, I love the gift tag idea! :)

  2. Great idea. I love little spice jars..they are great for holding salad dressings in the lunch box.
