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?
Oh those nagging, messy cabinets that have mis-matched plastic ware (maybe never used jars, too) piled high because they are assorted sizes.
Throw out/recycle all the ones that are not PBA free. Toss the ones without lids or bottoms for that matter. If possible, replace them with PBA free or glass storage conttainers that nest and have interchangeable lids.
Mason jars also make excellent storage containers.
