Bathrooms reIMAGINED

Many common toiletries and bathroom sundries come in large bags or packages, which are unsightly and inconvenient.  Mason jars are ideal for storing just the right amount of cotton balls, swabs, or make-up pads in a stylish, easy-to-grab container.  With reCAP, your jars are multi-functional and reusable solutions for every room in your home. 

They can be reimagined to hold DIY creations, like face scrubs, soaps, bath salts, or lotions, too. 

You can create natural and homemade products that are ideal for you and your lifestyle.  Download reGIFT with reCAP for more ideas, recipes, and tips like this all natural hair mask:

Mason Jar Smoothies: Drink Your Veggies!

Good news. You no longer have to 'eat your greens.' Smoothies make it easy to drink your daily dose of essential vitamins and minerals - and depending on your creativity, these colorful boosts of energy can curb cravings and keep you on track throughout the day.

Inspirational recipes are aplenty - look to Pinterest to get started (and you'll be there for hours).  Milkshake's healthy cousin, the smoothie is able to disguise otherwise healthy ingredients as palatable indulgence (check out the recipe for a PB&J smoothie below!). 

Vegetables like kale are fortified with nutrients; one cup has only 36 calories and 5 grams of fiber.  The great thing about kale is it is inexpensive, adds bulk, and when mixed with berries, banana, yogurt, vanilla protein powder, and other natural stuff, it's really delicious. 

Cut back on time and clean-up by making smoothies directly in a Regular-mouth Mason jar with an Oster blender.  Add your ingredients, blend, and take it 'to-go.'

Top 5 Ways to be Healthier with Mason Jars!

With the new year comes a fresh start!  Kick off a healthy and happy 2016 with these:

TOP 5 WAYS TO BE HEALTHIER WITH MASON JARS!

1.  Plan Ahead - Make layered salads or overnight breakfasts in advance.  Mason jars keep ingredients fresh, help with portion control, and are easy to grab-and-go for an active lifestyle.  

2.  Drink Water - Staying hydrated replenishes the body and flushes out toxins and the byproducts of fat.  Using a reusable glass jar for water is convenient and eco-awesome!

3.  Make Smoothies - You might think smoothies are all the rage, which they are, but they are also a delicious way to fill up on vitamin and nutrient packed fruits and veggies.  Many regular mouth Mason jars will also work as a blender (less clean-up!). 

4.  Be Motivated - Write down 10 to 20 ideas to increase your activity or decrease your stress (or both) - for example, "10 sit ups" or "Dance to a favorite song."  Keep the jar on your kitchen counter and set a time each day to pick one out!

5.  Make Your Own - You don't have to be a 5-Star Michelin Chef to create delicious foods at home. Many store-bought dressings are filled with excess sugar, preservatives, and unnecessary ingredients.  Shake up dressings and sauces with Mason jars, which store perfectly in the fridge.  



Friendship Soup in a Mason Jar!

There's just something awesome about giving a gift that gives back.  We supported NAMI of Erie County's Holiday Mix Sale - all proceeds benefit NAMI's Family-to-Family program. By adding reCAP, the gift keeps on giving long after the contents are enjoyed.  Will they transform your jar creation into an everyday water bottle?  Perhaps as a yarn dispenser?  Or maybe to shake, pour, and store homemade dressings?  

Homemade, DIY, Mason jar gifts just got better with reCAP!  Need ideas, check out Jamie Oliver's Edible Christmas Gifts for recipes and inspiration.

Little goblins, witches, and ghouls will shriek with delight discovering the treats inside this jar.  Makes an excellent Halloween gift for kids, teachers, and friends.  

Simply fill a Regular mouth Mason jar (any size) with the recipient's favorite candies.  I added Halloween erasers and ink stamps and topped it with a Glow-in-the-Dark reCAP Flip.  Once the candy is eaten and Halloween is long over, reuse the jar for storing toys, craft supplies, or holiday treats!
