I use the smalestl mason jars to carry my yogurt or cottage cheese to school. I find the mason jars are much better as they don't leak. This way I save money by buying the bigger containers instead of the individually wrapped ones.

I just read this... most regular blenders will accept Mason jars, so you can grind spices or your coffee beans into a Mason jar, and store right away. Simpler clean-up, no need for separate coffee or spice grinders, or to buy one of those 'bullet blenders'. It's also good to know if you happen to break the that jar/lid that comes with your blender. (see clarificiation in"more info", following comments rec'd.)
Clarification following comments: I take my blender's blades and screw them onto the jar, then screw that into the blender stand. Hopefully that's clear?
If you like crunchy, fresh lettuce that will keep in your refrigerator for at least 1 week, try this tip. Buy you a Foodsaver from Costco, buy a dozen wide mouth mason jars from Walmart, and order a wide mouth sealer from Foodsaver (about $8.00) I like to buy Romain Lettuce in bulk, chop it into bite size, wash and spin, pack in jars and seal. The lettuce will stay dry, and super crunchy. A money saver and a super easy way to make a wonderful salad.
