Reinvigorate your empty coffee jar as the ultimate lunchbox - from breakfasts and salads to hummus and carrot sticks.

Empty coffee jars take up a lot of space - but they might actually be the one thing you never knew you needed... a lunchbox. 

People noticed that some jars - which have a removable plastic panel in the lid - can be used like a mason jar style lunchbox, allowing a wet or fresh element to be carried with dry foodstuffs. 

This makes it ideal for fruit and yogurt, salad and dressing or hummus and crudités. 

The hollow lid can also be popped open and filled with sugar, making it a space saver for people with small kitchens, caravanners and campers, or for people on the go.
