Frugal Friday~

For today's Frugal Friday I present.......things in jars.

Don't laugh.
I can hear you.
I mean it.

Don't underestimate the power of like things displayed in great jars. Just look at these...















So go gather up those buttons/shells/rocks/clothespins/paperclips you have lying around and put them in a pretty jar. Big impact. Little Money.


Now it's your turn...

You know "da rules"...

1. Please link directly to your post and not just to your blog.
2. Please link back to the Shabby Nest, so that others can enjoy the Frugal goodness.
3. Comment, comment, comment...show our participants the love!

I just cleaned out my fridge and have some pickle jars and a little horseradish jar that I decided to reuse instead of recycle. I just finished washing them and came to your post. How funny.

I love things in jars though, especially when it has a wonder-cabinet scientific effect!
