I got a piece of trash from my mom! I'm still tickled about it. She was saving a V-8 juice container to cut off the top and use the bottom for a flower pot. As luck would have it, Husby just accidentally recycled the top I had cut off of a rectangular bottle to use for a funnel. That was to be temporary anyway, but we don't usually buy anything in round bottles with an appropriately sized neck for putting ingredients into small jars I use for DIY seasoning mixes. I was very happy to take the juice bottle's top, which makes a perfect, free funnel for my funneling needs. This now completes my "set" of round funnels in 4 sizes that work on jars and bottles from canning jars down to narrow neck bottles, and all stack together to save space. 🙂

I'm quite fond of the smaller funnel I made from the top of a ½ liter Pepsi bottle, too.

I know, simple things for simple minds. 😁😁😁

woohoo!
Friends were clearing out their shed and even though I assured them I needed nothing, they had me tour the pile of stuff before they went to donate it. Got a giant amish made clothes drying rack, some mason jars in specific sizes I use for specific things, an antique coffee grinder (didn't "need" that but I have a coffee gadget fetish and I will try to get it in shape to use, if not, I will sell it and pass some cash back to them), a bucket of veggie seeds they bought in a "omg the world might end" moment a few years ago, and some other odds and ends that I can use or pass on to people I know will use them.
The drying rack is my favorite score. It is nearly 6' tall when set up and has space to hand 2 loads. Nice.
