I had toyed with buying one of those huge ceramic crocks you can get that holds kitchen utensils like tongs and spatulas and wooden spoons, but then I thought I'd use what was on hand. This isn't so much because I am a frugal goddess (HA--I actually bought something completely frivolous a couple of weeks ago when I could have just made do with what I have so don't mistake me for a wise feral homemaker) but because I truly hate shopping. Getting a kitchen crock would have required me to go to the store and fight the crowds and look at a bunch of crocks that would have had me thinking, Eh, I dunno, it's got ducks on it. Do I really want to spend money on something with ducks on it? while random people ask me where the table linens were because for some reason, even when I'm wearing a winter coat, everyone thinks I work at whatever store I happen to be in. It's weird.
It wasn't pretty--I didn't have a jar that was large enough to hold them all, and I wasn't about to use all of my canning jars on them, but I did manage, and no one comes into my place and gasps in horror at the fact that I've got three slightly mismatched containers to hold these things.
Two of them are plastic storage containers whose lids are missing. Well, instead of tossing them, I used them. The other is a chipped canning jar. Instead of tossing it, I used it. It works. And it saved me a trip to the store and wondering if I really should buy a ceramic thing with ducks on it.
