I use the jars for carrying salad dressing and condiments to work for
I am currently collecting jars to make a magnetic spice rack. The
racks sell in stores for $40 or more for 10 -12 small cannisters that
magnetically attach to a metal plate attached to the wall. I used two
large sheet magnets and glued them vinyl side to each other. One side
attaches to the refrigerator (freezer door or side of fridge if
exposed)and the other side is free to attach the baby food jars full
of spices. The metal lid clings to the magnet and the clear jar allows
me to see my spices. I printed out small circular labels with the name
of the spice and adhere it to the bottom, which is clearly visible
when attached to the magnet. I also used permanent marker to write on
the lid the name of the spice. The magnet on the fridge can also hold
metal measuring spoons.
I use the plastic baby food containers to hold pins, needle, snaps,
and buttons that I use for sewing.
You could make snow globes out of the jars.
You can make seeding pots for your garden using the plastic ones with
holes poked in the bottom.
