Safety Tip: Safe Way to Store Matches

I save the glass jars with glass tops that some brands of scented candles come in when I have finished burning the candle. After cleaning out any wax residue with boiling water and wiping with a piece of newspaper or a paper towel, I refill it with boxes and books of matches, pop on the lid, and store it on a high shelf out of reach of children: high and dry!

Any glass jar with a glass or metal lid will do. The idea is that the matches are stored in such a way that they cannot become  a fire hazard. I like the candle jars because they come in interesting shapes, look nice, and fit well in my cupboards. I got the idea years ago from a friend who had a matchbook collection that he stored in a glass aquarium with a glass lid! Begonia
