handy idea. You can recycle plastic lids from peanutbutter jars and mayo jars, they fit the small size canning jars.

Especially great because it keeps them dry, unlike the cardboard box they come in.

Glue the striker on the inside and it's waterproof for camping. Great idea, indeed! Thanks, Jennifer!

Great idea! We were just discussing the importance of having extra matches! I will do this for sure!!! I'm also one ingredient away from whipping up a batch of hard cider, I can't wait ☺

You are so cute, how thrilled you are by this! (In a totally non-demeaning way.) Sounds a lot safer next to a gas (or wood) stove, too.

We have done that, but I had them in a quart jar. The jelly jar is a great size. I will have to switch.

Also, the green lids that come on Parmesan cheese at the store fit on regular mouth canning jars. Very handy for anything you want to shake out.

Excellent idea. Much nicer than the ugly box they come in.

@ Victoria

Well I learned something new! Didn't know there was such a thing as "Strike Anywhere Matches". I tried the sandpaper on top of the jar, but all it did was sand my "Strike on the Box" matches.

That's a wonderful idea! And I love Weez's comment about glueing the striker on the inside of the lid so it's waterproof. I am so going to do this!!!
