Red face What to do with mason/canning jars....

that have a few nicks around the top and can't be used for canning??? We have probably around 10 or so that are decent, but can't be used for canning. I hate to throw them away, but can't for the life of me figure out something creative to do with them!
Help me out creative Mommas!!!!

I use them for canning still but buy the plastic freezer jar lids and keep baby food in them. I also use them for candles and for bathroom stuff like Q tips and cotton balls.

I use them for storage...dry goods in the pantry, candy, craft supplies, beads, buttons, sauce packets, pens and pencils (all our rooms have a pen and pencil jar!) I LOVE jars, and have way too many full of way too much around my house! LOL!

we also use them for pens and pencils, as well as things in the bathroom. Dry goods also, sugar, flour, etc. You can tie some pretty ribbon or leather around the neck for some decoration

I've also bought the plastic lids and put food in them, in the pantry and fridge.
For example, if I open a can of fruit for DS and then I save the rest in a glass jar. Love that it doesn't go in a plastic container!
