Storage cabinets from Walmart - inexpensive, and they hold a lot, too:

Dang Pop's did you leave anything in the store?

Storage always seems to be a problem.

I use these stackable plastic crates for my quart jars. Holds aboiut 20 jars and stack nicely. I found them on craigslist from a greenhouse (used to ship plants) for under $3 apiece. I line them with cardboard and put jar upside down to keep them clean.


I use this style for my Pint jars and smaller. You can get 24 pints if doublestacked (cardboard between) If you get the taller ones. These were $3-$4 apiece and a few less than that at a garage sale.

I know you said no plastic but they are a one-time purchase that last a lifetime and can be bought on sale or garage sales or craigslist, just take your time and add a few at a time.

Besides, it's late fall and all your jars should be full!

We use crates and boxes, When there are extra clean/sterilized jars left we put the lids and rings on back in the boxes and put away for next go around. They are clean so we don't have to clean again just sterilize / hot water bath depending on the next use.

Thanks Barry. I hadn't thought of these type crates. I was referring more to the one they sell specially for the mason jars. They are a bit spendy. I have a few of both these style and will try them out.

I use a old book self that was free along the road for my canned foods, but have bought Muscle rack shelving for pantry foods and for tool storage. They hold a lot of weight per shelf and are adjustable. Walmart has them the cheapest I've found, although they are rated for slightly less weight than the ones at Lowes. I doubt you'll be using them to put engine blocks on, so they will be fine.
