I have two kids that eat alot of peanut butter sandwich's, so over the course of the winter I end up with more than a handful of PB jars.

My wife's grandmother gave us a whole bag of empty pill bottles acouple of years ago.

Many are saying peanut butter jars. This brings the question, WHY?

What makes PB containers better than let's say a mayo jar or other?

Peanut butter jars have a wider opening making it easier to put things in and take them out.

My family eats a quart of peanut butter every week. They are THE best container out there outside of an ammocan.

With MN above and below zero temps. Covering the "best & cheapest" PB jar with camo tape can also make it last for a very long time.

I have to agree with the peanut butter jar. I fill mine with water and a little bleach after I've cleaned them and let them sit for a week or so. Just to get that last little bit of scent out. Then I do the dog sniff test. Peanut butter is their very favorite treat. If they show no interest in the jar, I know it is good to go!

My spouse works at Walgreens so we get a few freebie pill bottles that work great but PB jars are still the best, once you get them cleaned out.
