Plastic Jars for Home Storage

With the nights drawing in and Christmas approaching, many of us start to think about getting ready for the festive season. For some, this brings a feeling of panic about having to declutter the house and have a good old tidy-up before the in-laws arrive for Christmas lunch. If your kitchen looks like it needs a decluttering makeover, help is at hand. Today, we explain how to get organised in simple steps so that you can tackle your clutter in an effective way.

Plastic jars are the answer

Are you sometimes afraid to open a kitchen cupboard for fear of packets of food falling out onto the floor? Do you despair when trying to find the stock cubes or a packet of sultanas on your shelves? The answer to this common problem is to organise the contents of your kitchen cupboards using plastic jars and storage containers.

If you use a range of plastic jars to store items such as flour, sugar, cereals, pasta and biscuits, it makes it easy to keep everything neatly arranged. Plastic sweet jars, such as the ones we used to see in the sweet shop when we were small, are ideal for kitchen storage. It is easy to spot at a glance what is in each jar; in addition, they sit neatly side by side on your shelves, maximising space. With screw top lids, plastic sweet jars are airtight and will keep their contents fresh and safe from harmful germs.

For smaller items, simply use smaller jars and stack them on top of one another to keep everything in order. Buy different coloured lids to build a colour-coded system to help find the right jar quickly. Try to place similar items together on the shelves to make finding things as easy as possible; for example, store all your home baking supplies together, all pasta items together, and all herbs and spices together.

Our range of plastic jars

We have a huge range of plastic sweet jars to help you get your kitchen clutter under control. The traditional large sweet shop jars are available in 3,907ml and 4,430ml sizes, whilst the half-sized, square jars come in 2,534ml and 2,667ml sizes. Our spherical plastic PET jars are also hugely popular as child-friendly biscuit containers. As they are plastic, they stand up to wear and tear and can survive being knocked off the counter by eager biscuit hunters!

Plastic storage works well elsewhere in the house, of course. Try these techniques in the bathroom, the children’s playroom or a craft or hobby room for an instant tidiness overhaul.

Plastic jars for fun

Plastic jars for fun

We might be best known for our huge range of glass jars in all shapes and sizes, but here at Wares of Knutsford, we also carry quite an array of plastic jars. Glass jars are what you need if you are making jams, pickles and preserves, of course, but sometimes a plastic jar is much more suitable. In today’s post, we cast our eyes across our plastic jar range and suggest some ideas for how these versatile and durable jars can be used.

Plastic jars in the playroom

If you have children, you will be familiar with the issue of constantly finding small toys or toy parts around the house. Whether it is Lego bricks, Nerf gun bullets, racing cars or farmyard animals, children have a habit of strewing their bits and bobs in every conceivable place. With a few of our larger plastic storage jars, it is easy to tidy up after them, perhaps with a jar allocated to each type of toy. Stacked on a shelf in the playroom or your children’s bedrooms, these jars will look good and work hard to help you keep the mayhem to a minimum.

In addition to toy storage, a tall plastic PET jar can work brilliantly as a container for pens, pencils and crayons. Children will soon get the hang of putting their colouring materials away after they have been drawing or working on a colouring book, and you will be instilling some good habits for keeping their belongings safe and tidy.

Plastic jars for adult hobbies

It is not just children who tend to have bits and bobs lying around that could do with a tidy up. Any adult with a hobby will definitely find a few storage containers useful for getting organised. Whether you have a man cave or a she shed that you retreat to when you need some peace and quiet, some plastic storage will help you to keep this space neat and tidy and a relaxing place to be. Use plastic containers and jars to store everything from sewing or knitting materials to woodworking tools and craft equipment. Our slimline PET jars are tall enough to hold crochet hooks and knitting needles, while our 425ml clear plastic PET jars are great to fill with sewing needles, thread, buttons and small scissors to place around the house as emergency sewing kits.

If your child’s room, or your own craft room for that matter, looks like a missile has hit it, perhaps it is time to consider some storage jars!

Storing in Plastic Jars

Plastic sweet jar taylor davisPlastic Jars are fantastic for storage

 In today’s post, we take a look at plastic storage jars and the many ways in which they can be utilised to de-clutter your home and keep it neat and tidy. Plastic jars might not look very exciting; however, once you have used them to get super-organised, you will be convinced of their charms and determined to use them whenever and wherever you can.

 Plastic jars for the kitchen

 Starting in the kitchen, there are all sorts of ways in which plastic storage can help to keep everything tidy. Rice, pasta and beans all store well in plastic containers; in addition, storing them in this way means that you avoid the ‘split pack’ problem. Use plastic jars with lids for this purpose so that the food is kept in airtight conditions.

 Sweets and biscuits are also best stored in plastic jars with lids to prevent them going stale for as long as possible. If you need to keep cookie jars out of reach of little hands, these jars can safely be stored on a high shelf, or on top of the fridge, without fear of them breaking should they be dropped.

 Plastic jars for the rest of the house

 It is not just in the kitchen that these jars come in incredibly handy. They are so versatile that they can be used in pretty much every room in the house. In the bathroom, use them for storing cotton buds, cotton wool balls and hair grips; in the children’s playroom, larger jars are perfect for holding toy parts, such as Lego, farmyard animals and jigsaw pieces, and for colouring pens and pencils. If you are forever knocking over a bag of pet food in the utility room, pour it all into one of our larger plastic jars with lids and you will solve the problem once and for all.

 Out in the shed or greenhouse, there are plenty of reasons to choose plastic storage jars. From storing nails, screws and tacks to keeping twine and plant labels close to hand, a few storage jars on a shelf will keep everything tidy and banish the annoying issue of never being able to find what you need.

 It is easy to think that plastic storage jars are just for the kitchen; however, whilst it is true that they are very handy there, they are just as useful in lots of other places around the home. If you take a good look at your organisational problems, you will soon find that plastic storage can go a long way to fixing them. Plastic is very definitely fantastic!

Using Plastic Jars

When it comes to storage jars, most people would agree that glass jars add a certain charm to the kitchen or pantry, especially if they are traditional Kilner or Mason jars or vintage-inspired decorative jars. Sometimes, however, a plastic jar is simply more practical for a particular application. In today’s post, we look through our range of plastic storage jars and discuss the various uses these jars are suitable for.

Plastic jars for safety

 One big advantage of plastic storage jars is that they are much safer to handle than glass jars. With little ones running around the kitchen, using one of these jars as a cookie jar is a great idea, as children can safely reach up and get a cookie or biscuit without the risk of tipping over a heavy glass jar and breaking it. The 1,823ml size would be a good option for use as a cookie jar, while the slightly smaller 1,000ml jar could perhaps serve a similar purpose and hold wafers or sweet treats.

 If you are a dog owner and you like to keep dog treats available, one of the smaller jars would again be suitable. The screw top lid means that Fido will not be able to help himself to treats, while the clear plastic means you can see how many treats you have left.

 Plastic jars for storage

 When it comes to storing liquids, plastic jars can really come into their own. If you make a large batch of homemade soup, for example, a large plastic jar is perfect to store it in the fridge. Juices and smoothies can also be made up in bulk and then stored in a large plastic jar to have at hand throughout the day. Plastic storage jars can also safely go in the freezer; therefore, if your homemade liquid creations can be frozen, plastic is the right choice for you.

 If your pantry cupboards look permanently untidy, with split bags of pasta and spilt rice everywhere, some plastic storage jars could sort everything out in double-quick time. Pouring pasta, rice and flour into their own airtight storage jars will keep them fresh and tidy. Herbs and spices can also be stored in this way – traditional spice jars can often be too small, especially if you buy your spices from an ethnic supermarket where pack sizes tend to be much larger.

 Plastic storage jars come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and you can find exactly the right jars for everything you need to store.
