Describe your tip
Like many people, I reuse glass canning jars throughout the week for many purposes - food storage in the pantry, food prep for the week, for storing beans, noodles, salad, soups, take-along lunches, and of course, for making jams.
However, the metal cap and ring is a bit meddlesome. Sometimes rings rust, and most of the time, I wasn't using them for canning jams anyway. I just wanted simple one-piece, twist-on, twist-off everyday lids for my jars. Plastic screw-on lids are sold for $9 each, but that seemed high.
One day I made PB Pad Thai and was storing it in jars to freeze for single meals later on. I accidentally screwed the peanut butter lid onto one of the jars and it fit perfectly! The red peanut butter lid had identical threading to the glass Ball jars.
These jars have standard mouth openings and so the PB lids fit on any size jar, big or small. It's just one little thing but, it's one of my favorite upcycling hacks in the kitchen.

(Ball brand, regular mouth jars)
