What a neat way to store those rings that always seem to roll out of the cabinet door when I open it!Thanks for sharing!
Cool idea. I'll have to buy more bungie cords and hide them from the hubby!
Mine are loose in a box right now, but I do enjoy looking at how you store yours. :o)
CQ, I store them in 2 gallon ziploc bags. I love your idea.
I like that idea. Looks like I'm adding bungie cords to the shopping list.
We take wire hangers and unwind the twisted section to have two separate ends. Bend the unwoven end into a hook to hook back over the first wire. Unhook it, string your lids on it like the bungie cords and then re-hook it. They work great!! We have extra room on the clothes rack in the laundry room that sits beside the kitchen, so that's where we hang our canning lid hangers so they are within easy reach and they don't take up valuable space in the kitchen.
I'm always looking for cost-effective ways to do something. Thanks for the idea!
Just a box right now. I'm not creative and original like you LOL I don't want to buy bungie cords but... I have LOTS of baling twine.... I wonder if I could tie it on one end and then tie it with a simple slip knot on the top for easy adding and subtracting.... Mmmmmm........ Such is the life of a previous consumer trying hard to become a producer :-)
Bungie cords are extremely cheap at any dept. store and this is the way Amish store theirs.I don't have any to store--I leave my rings on always.I move my jars around a lot; makes me feel better having that extra bit of measure.Now the storage caps(white caps for when opening jars and not wanting to use lid/ring), I keep those in shoe boxes.
Your lid storage is a great one! It keeps those things in a much neater way.
I us an old wire hanger that I twist apart at the top, slide on my rings, and then twist back together just one time. I can then just hang them up in the laundry room on the wire shelf that hangs on one wall.
I use old belts, recycle ya know?
I have done the coat hanger trick, but I found a better looking solution. Several big box stores sell in their coat hanger aisle a hanger for belts. They are a circle with a cutout to slip them on and off. Hard wire. Just hang them on a shelf in the pantry. Then when you're canning, you can grab one and go to the kitchen. Each hanger will hold about 40 I guess. I have a bunch of them.
I just found this, this is brilliant! Thanks!
