Just a really quick Mason Jar Lid Tip:

A normal Parmesan cheese lid will fit on a regular mason jar.  This will turn a mason jar into a cheese shaker jar at zero cost.

Hopefully you can find all sorts of uses for this, we now have a directive not to throw away the lids.

Not really what else I can say about this mason jar tip – but I do find all manner of uses for it.  Heck I find that you can even use it to help sprout wheat if needed.

I use this for my homemade garlic powder, and all manner of homemade spice mixes.  Especially my taco seasoning.

It works well for little bits of hardware like brads for my bee frames or tiny little nuts.

I use this quite a bit around the house.  This is a simple tip, the lid works better than two piece mason jar lids, I have lots of jars, and we use a bunch of Parmesan cheese.

Maybe this is just a weird melding of a bunch of unrelated things that makes this particular tip useful to me, but I would be willing to bet that there are some of you that could also get some use out of this.

This tip is a little more sturdy than some of the other jar lid tips I have shown in the past.  Like the one for the salt lids.
