Save the whales jars! Okay...save the whales too, but you can also save your empty jars. You're mostly paying for packing anyway, might as well use it! Here's how I used mine and a few other ideas.

Look at those darn spice packets, mocking me from the back of the cupboard!
I used a dry erase marker to label them. That way I can switch them later.
Here are three other jar ideas I've seen lately that are tempting as well.
