Okay, so I decided to NOT use the Button Bank that I purchased at Joanns for my Skittles. I’m hoping that I still have the receipt to return it! 🙂
I did find these handy magnetic jars at my Home Depot (in the same aisle where they sell pegboard hooks, etc.
These are pretty cool. They come with a thin metal bar and the screws to attach the bar to a wall, or underside of a cabinet. The lids of the jars are quite magnetic and they basically “cling” to the included metal bar. So, you can have the bars hanging from the underside of a shelf or cabinet…or you can have them perpendicular to the wall as I chose to do (with the help of my handy dad!):
The magnet, as I said, is pretty strong and able to keep the jars from falling.
To use a Skittle (for example, a yellow one), I simply remove the jar:
And I have the Skittles in my grubby little hand!
With the jars within reach of my workspace, I like the fact that they don’t take up valuable table space and they’re not too big or small. 🙂
Until next time!
A couple of edits:
1. The price was about $7 I believe? I can’t rightly recall.
2. The jars do NOT hold an entire bag of Skittles. They do hold much of them. I just store the leftovers in snack-sized ziploc bags in another drawer. 🙂
