🌺 Life in the Oasis 🌴

A Cookie Jar’s New Life


Many years ago, I received a glass cookie jar from one of my girlfriends.  It served as such, holding dozens of butter cookies, Pfeffernüsse, and other cookie delights over the years, especially during the Holidays. 

Then, since I grew to not enjoy desserts as much, it was relegated to collecting dust in my pantry.

I wanted to keep the jar.  But how to use it?

Under the kitchen sink sat a box of dishwasher detergent cubes, in an unattractive, battered cardboard box.

Then it hit me: The cookie jar!

It now holds all the detergent cubes it can.  It’s attractive under the sink, too.

This being a year I call “A Year of Change,” one of my goals is to get better organized and minimize the things I don’t use, this new life for my cookie jar fits the bill.  I keep a treasured gift, and it keeps working.
