In this post, I'm going to show you how we recycle both coffee and jelly jars with reusable lids, which make the perfect refrigerator storage for leftover coffee that can then be used as the perfect iced coffee glass.
I love buying Garden Club jelly. I really enjoy the plum jelly, and I especially like that I can reuse every jar either as a drinking glass or a storage jar since the lid is reusable. They are quaint with a sweet vintage design on the bottom.
This is where the leftover coffee comes in.
So maybe you don't want an iced coffee now, but you might this afternoon or when you come home from work. Just pour the leftovers in the jar and store in the refrigerator.
If you plan to refrigerate and save for later, just remember to keep your lids and snap it on!
If you're reusing certain types of food containers, though, like salsa, spaghetti sauce, or kimchi (learned by experience), just remember that the smell really never comes out of the lid part.
Kimchi coffee really doesn't sound good.
When you're ready to make yourself a cold coffee drink, just get some cream and sugar, and ice cubes if you like!
Add a little sugar, or whatever sweetener you prefer!
Add a cute straw and you're ready for some sweet sips!
I love the plastic straws I bought last year from Oh Joy. I had been looking for straws I could throw in the dishwasher for a long time, and these work out great!
I don't really like to use ice often, so just cold coffee is fine with me!
