Ways to re-use your glass jars

infusion bags inside jars with name sellotaped on glass

Place the content of each of your different infusions (green tea, peppermint, etc.) inside a glass jar. This will help your infusions stay fresh longer and also take less space in your cupboard.

Tip: to remember which is which, simply cut out the name from the infusion box and sellotape it on the side of the jar.

Ways to reuse sliced bread plastic bags – fresher tea bags

Tea bags are cheaper to buy in large packs but they would take too much space in the food cupboard for day-to-day use. So, I fill a handy-size container with a few handful of tea bags and, to keep the remaining tea bags fresh, I place the pack inside an old sliced bread plastic bag sealed at the top. To give you an idea of sizes, you can fit a 750g pack of Yorshire Tea tea bags inside a Hovis bag.
