Reuse Pasta Sauce/Pickle Bottles For Food Storage

Usually every month, I ended up with 7 or 8 empty pasta sauce or dill pickle bottles. After I cleaned them in the dish washer, they were so sparkling clean and saying "don't throw us away." Then I started of thinking how efficiently I can use them, apart from their regular dry food storage. Here are the tips.


  1. I buy lot of vegetables when they are on sale (fresh beans at 99 cents/lb) and from Costco in bulk. Wash and cut in different shapes. Put them in different bottles and keep in the freezer.
  2. Make small holes in the lid of the bottle. It help to keep cut greens, herbs and cut veggies fresh. They need aeration.
  3. Soak different types of dry beans (chickpeas, red beans, etc.) Pressure cook them keep in small bottles.
  4. Try to avoid using plastic storage boxes to keep the cooked food. Use bottles instead of plastic.


  1. Healthy: Started eating lot of veggies and beans. Avoiding plastic. Avoiding canned food.
  2. Saving Money: On freezer covers/boxes. Not wasting even a single vegetable. Save money on bulk and sale. Save money on canned beans and frozen cut vegetables.
