Win some glass vouchers!!

Hey Spriggers,

The kindly folks at Consol have given us two vouchers to hand out worth R500 each, for their shops in Woodmead (Gauteng) and Stellenbosch in the Western Cape (sorry Durbanites and others, I’m sure you have friends and relatives in these parts?). So, now you can personally test-drive the apparent health benefits of glass

I couldn’t decide on how to hand these out so at my sister’s suggestion, if you would like to win one of these vouchers, please comment below on what you think the best way to use a glass jar is. To store pasta or raisins, make gifts, to use as a pot plant… Winners will be selected using a random number generator and the competition will end next Tuesday, 4th October…

    Reckon that storing dry goods (dried broadbeans, chickpeas, sunflower seeds, etc) from my garden harvest, or using them to preserve my fresh garden produce (homemade tomato sauce, canned tomatoes, pickles, jams and whole fruits to name but a few, and all cooked in my solar oven), is the best way I would use these jars if I won them 🙂

    Ah, I can but dream… LOL

    i love to store all sorts in glass jars, naturally. However, my brother, a vet, once had to remove an eye from a dog (it was bitten by a snake). He gifted me with said eye and I kept it in a nice Consol Jar as an interesting, and somewhat unquie keep sake… I had it in my room and told my younger sisters that there was always someone watching… my sisters didnt rampage my cupboard for months!!
    So ya, the best use for a glass jar is definately an dog-eye-storing-stealing-sister-stopper.

    I am an architect and love to cast glass jars into concrete walls, especially coloured ones! This allows light entering a room create interesting patterns and textures on other surfaces, which are constantly changing as the sun moves across the sky.

    I love to store my beans and grains in them as it keeps the critters out. I am entering this for my brother who lives in Gauteng and I can just see those jars in their lovely new kitchen. He introduced me here and I know would never enter this competition! would love to win them for him.

    I am completely OBSESSED with jars!! I love them so much I am constantly scouting for new jars and interesting glass vases. I use jars for terrariums and for growing my own sprouts. I would never ever throw a jar away, not only are they awesome for terrariums, but also for growing succulent leaf tips, keeping cuttings, using as a display or flower vase.i LOVE jars!!!! 🙂

    we use all sorts of glass jars to store pasta, rice, flour, oats, dried fruit, nuts, cereals, homemade sauces, buttons, cotton reels, drills bits, screws, and more. We always add a dried bay leaf to each jar of dry goods for extra protection against critters. As far as possible we remove labels from jars of gherkins, mayonaise etc. and use them to store goods. Jars with labels that don’t come off get used to store blades, bits, screws and other bits and pieces in my workshop. I know my sister could use some more glass jars, she’s in Cape Town.

    a glass jar with a top that closes is perfect for a terrarium! I have one going and not only is it an attractive way of displaying your indoor plants but its so rewarding creating a little self sustaining habitat and observing the processes of evaporation and respiration. Love them 🙂

    Thank you, Sprig – I’m very thrilled to have been awarded one of the prizes 🙂

    Can’t wait to go to Consols shop in Stellenbosch…
