This is such a clever idea not only for kids, but adults as well! Mason jars have so many beneficial purposes! This particular DIY project certainly helps you to keep track of our spending habits! I know that I, as an adult, can benefit from this as well! I’m really bad about not knowing where my money went!
Besides the typical jam and pickle that you put in Mason jars, they make great organizers, holders, and keepers. Transform mason jars into flower or vegetation pots and hang or stand them. Create hand painted lamps or lanterns, lace-covered candle holders or votive, or simply make a whole chandelier with as many jars as you can get hold of! I could go on and on about the uses for these fabulous jars. As a matter of fact, I just put up a post for mason jar chandeliers that you should definitely check out on this page! It’s remarkable!

Another great idea for Mason jars is to start a Vacation Fund! I know that if I didn’t do this I’d never be able to afford to go on a vacation, but you’ll be surprised how much you can save when you start putting a few dollars, here and there, into it!
