Mason Jar Tea Storage

We did a tea storage project that we absolutely love.

I am always searching for simple solutions that are practical and help create efficiency in our lives.

This simple Mason Jar Tea Storage helped create a simple solution for our kitchen so I had to share it.

The Challenge

We had several different boxes of tea that stack one on top the other in our pantry. One challenge for this is that we could not see the type of tea because we only saw the sides of the boxes!

Another challenge is that we could not see how much tea we actually have on hand. And sister, I don’t have time to keep inventory.

The blessings would ask for a specific type of tea and we would go to make it, but the box would be empty!

My children (bless their hearts) will grab the last bag of tea out of the box and leave the empty container in the pantry. (It’s a good thing I love them, right?!)

The Solution

I needed a simple storage solution to see exactly how much we have on hand. Better yet, when the jar is empty it’s not “trash” sitting in our pantry.  It’s now just another container waiting to be refilled.

I store so much in Mason jars (makes it easy to see just how much we have) so this was a perfect solution to our tea storage!

I had to share because it was so simple, super fun, and looks absolutely gorgeous!

SIMPLE = SUCCESS

How to Create

Want to do this?

1.| Use the canning lids to trace out the place on the box you want to use as the “lid”. We traced with a sharpie, but a pencil or pen will do.

2.| Cut out the box lid and fill the jar with that type of tea.

3.| Place “tea box lid” inside the canning ring, then place the new lid on the jar.


ANOTHER MASON JAR STORAGE SOLUTION

I love Mason jars for food storage, especially for Mason Jar Salads.  I’ve been using Mason Jars to store vegetables in our refrigerator.  It’s an easy way to ensure we have fresh vegetables prepped and ready to serve.

1.| SIMPLIFY YOUR SPACE

I created an action-packed download to help you create momentum to simplify your space and get you results.  I’m sharing what I’ve learned through years of moving (thanks, Army) reading, trial and error, and listening to the “experts” to craft a single document so that you can put your energy + effort where it needs to go:  YOUR SPACE.

I share my story here in The Beautiful Truth Behind Simplifying My Space because this part of the journey can be super challenging!

 

2.| THE MEAL PLANNING KIT FOR ALL MOMMAS

When I first began my health journey I needed simple tools to plan a menu that would work for our entire family.

There were so many tools out there that I was overwhelmed with where to start. I designed this meal planning kit to work for any momma anywhere, no matter your income, your family dynamic, or your work schedule.

The premise: Give each family member a voice in the planning process to help them take ownership of the food that graces our table.

Set parameters around food choices to gently guide your family in making better and healthier choices for their favorite foods.

We save time and money (and mom brain power) when we take a few minutes each week to plan healthy and affordable choices for our families.
