Daily Project Post - Canning Jars

If you know me personally, you'll know I'm not much of a housekeeper.  I do stay on top of day-to-day things like dishes and laundry pretty well, but the projects that are even slightly out of my normal routine (aka survival) consistently escape me.  So I thought I might try accomplishing one "extra" thing each day and post about it here for accountability and so I'd actually post something besides my grocery shopping.

Yesterday I spent about half hour in the garage organizing my canning jars.  My kiddos routinely put the clean jars on the garage shelves when they empty the dishwasher, but they are put on shelves willy-nilly.  I put all the loose rings into the top shelf bin (note to self: put bin lower so kids can reach easily) and sorted the jars by capacity and mouth-size.  I had to find some appropriately sized boxes to wedge onto the shelves, too.  Bonus:  I found a lingering jar of applesauce!  DD#2 was verra happy.  Otherwise we just have lots of apricot jam/sauce left.  

The garage is still a huge mess overall, but at least I can find and quickly grab jars as I'm starting the canning season.
