Mason jars

We loved Mason jars before they became such a trend! After all, this pantry staple is a must-have for making homemade jam! But these jars are also perfect for packing single-serve salads and for organizing odds and ends in the kitchen. Grab these jars in all sizes and colors at your local Joann.

Craft sticks

Cake pops, frozen pops, Rice Krispie pops— they all need something to hang onto. And you can find them by the bushel at a craft store. Plus, you can use your extras as markers for your herb garden or fancy party cheese plate.

Signs and chalkboards

Having a (socially distanced) get-together, and you want to label what’s what on the buffet (like these appetizers)? Pick up a few small chalkboards to label your creations (and save yourself from explaining your favorite recipes every time someone goes through the line). Joann also offers larger blackboards and whiteboards, perfect for shopping lists and menus.

Cookbook stand

Love to cook, but hate the thought of your favorite cookbook getting covered in butter, batter and all things gooey? Invest in a simple easel at Joann (by the painting supplies) to keep your book or tablet out of the way.
