I use recycled vegemite jars, just the right size for nails, screws, chalk etc.


  • recycled jars
  • wooden shelf
  • screws


  1. Set up your shelf the way you want it.
  2. Use as many recycled jars and you want too and screw the lids underneath the shelf.
  3. Fill the jars with odds and ends, we used chalk, nails, springs, screws etc.
  4. Screw the jar back onto the lid and voila!


We love it because you can still use your shelf to put stuff on as the recycled jars are underneath.

  • We had to save all our vegemite jars for my father in law to use in his shed just like this.


  • Brilliant idea and at minimal cost


  • That is soo cool, and what a great recycling project. Well done!


  • That’s so clever, great way to have some storage in an otherwise unused area. I have to wonder how easy they all are to access though


  • What a good idea, we go through a lot of vegimite and this is a great way to reuse the jars!


  • We use it all the time, back and forth getting chalk for the kids to draw on the concrete and wash it off again


  • It’s great for the shed, cleans up all the little pieces you don’t want it spread everywhere.

    • We do it inside the house too for all the art and craft


  • This is great! I hate little nuts and bolts etc being all over the place!

    • It’s a great way to keep things tidy


  • How cool is that idea?


  • this is nice…i’ll try this one !

  • What a great way to organise all of those odds and sods!
