    DH got the concrete work done in the old cellar a few weeks ago, and last week I finally got all my canned goods put away. I've had them spread out on my kitchen/dining room floor since I started canning back in August.

    People say you should cook from scratch, but I have no problem grabbing three or four jars to make a meal.

    Wow! One can learn so much from a picture. What a neat idea to use the original boxes from your jars to cover the prepared ones with. Keeps dust off & makes for much saver stacking of a top row. thanks for sharing!

    Old Swampgirl, right now I have lots of boxes, but I guard them well. I'm not sure what I'll do several years from now when I'm using jars I've had around for a while and the boxes have worn out.

    I bring a lot of extra produce in to work, and I tell people, take what you want, but don't take my boxes!!!!

    Cathy, most of my boxes wore out long ago so this is what I did. Most of these boxes are from motor oil (I had an old truck that used so much oil, it needed its own refinery!). Rebend the top flaps a bit and they hold 24 pint jars (with a layer of cardboard between layers). This is most of this years' canning. I put it in my pole barn so I would be forced to use the rest of last years canning, which is in the house. The boxes have labels on the front so I know what's inside.

    The barn looks like a farmer's market.

    I noticed there is a lot of other type of "lubricant" boxes in there too!

    I have found the best place to get nice boxes is the liquor store. They go through a lot and they are sturdy boxes too.
