Reusing Jars

Instead of tossing small glass jars into the recycling bin, peel off their labels, scrub the glass clean, and keep them around to use for storage. Once you have a stash of these jars on hand, you'll be amazed by all the possibilities: Pulverize a week's worth of black pepper and bottle it to have a just-ground taste at your fingertips. Contain onions or other odds and ends whose aromas might otherwise permeate the refrigerator. And if you're a heavy garlic user, mince up a few cloves ahead of time and store in olive oil for 3 to 4 days in your fridge.
