Create more storage space by clearing off your counter top.  Mount a magnetic strip underneath your cabinets to hold smaller, matching jars for your spices.

Haha!  These photo frames made me smile.  You could also stand the jar upright and fill it with olive oil to give your picture a sepia effect like this.

Use chalkboard labels to keep your desk, playroom or kitchen closet organized and all the items in their place.

    I love this. I hate to trash things I cannot recycle. Do you have any ideas for the little glass jars that are used for "plug-in" airfresheners??

Here's the best crafting tip I have ever given: Keep every glass jar and lid that you can. Wash the jars, peel off the labels and keep them for projects. They also make cute giveaway containers for presents if you wrap the object in tissue paper before you stuff it in the jar. Ah. I'm getting off topic. Glue an animal to the lid and spray paint! For this project, I do not recommend hot glue because it does not do well with temperature changes. An epoxy glue like E6000 would work best...

Definitely a category more akin to the DIY crowd because of the non-complexity it entails. Not to say that some of these haven't had some hard work put toward them. But you'll definitely find this style in both formal and informal circles.
