I have a really cute elephant cookie jar that I bought at Target last year. I think it was $9.99. I never put anything in it though because I don't bake cookies and I try not to eat them either. Do you have a cookie jar? What does it look like?

The comedic aspect about myself having like five cookie jars.. is the fact that I dont ever use them! I always mean to use them but I guess I just forget when I purchase the pastries.. and so they never end up those containers. Im actually still using one of those cookie jars to store my change in. Its actually really useful for that.

Oh yeah.. what do they look like.. 1. One is the dome of Homer Simpson. The top of his cranium lifts and you can then insert the cookies. 2. A House is the form of another one, it purty mundane you just lift the roof portion. 3. The one I store my change in rather large, its a black labrador dog, you lift his head up and the content goes inside. 4. The other one is hard to describe but its the Incredible Hulk 5. The last one looks like a rainbow sprinkled cupcake.

I like the sounds of the rainbow sprinkled cupcake one. Are they all in your kitchen?

I actually have them all in my cup board, even if I dont actually use them. The only one that I dont have in my kitchen is the one that I store my change in... that one is in my bedroom...

I have a cookie monster cookie jar. I won an ebay auction long time ago. It was hand made and very cute. I love filling it up with store bought cookies and homemade for my kids. I am afraid that one of these days that one of my kids won't be to careful and drop cookie monster's head and break it. It already has chips from them not being easy when they put the head back. Hopefully, this will be the one cookie jar that my grand kids will reach in and get a cookie out of, 10 years down the road.

I just use an empty large peanut butter jar for my cookies when I decide to bake any. I was thinking of getting one of those novelty 'Keep Your Hands out of the Cookie Jar" cookie jars that they had at Walmart a couple of years ago, but we decided that since our boys were not kids anymore it would not be right. But it would have kept me from eating any. I do love macaroons, chocolate chips, and pecan cookies. And I do make very good oatcake, but they are gone in a split. Just me eating them, no one else.

I have a cookie tin. It says Mom's Coupons on it. Years ago, my mom used to coupon and she used this. When I got it, I decided to use it for cookies. It is empty right now. I'll bake this weekend. :-)

I bought a cookie jar for a friend. Then I was talking to her about cookie jars. She thought the ones that have a recording that plays when you open the lid are stupid and she hates them. That was the kind I bought her! It was a Martial Artist cookie jar, the top of the head opened and it would say some "diet words of wisdom" like, "One cookie is better than two, to get a slimmer you." I thought it was cute. So I kept the cookie jar, but it did get on my nerves. Not sure if I put it away or sold it. Can't sneak into the cookie jar without my husband noticing! Neat topic, I like it.

No. I'm looking for the perfect ceramic cookie jar. I want to paint it myself. When I was a kid, my mom had one that had parrots all over it. She painted it herself and did such a great job of making it colorful and beautiful. I'd like to have something like that (not necessarily parrots, though).

I do not own a cook jar, nor do I bake cookies. When I do bake cookies we do not eat them before they go bad.

My cookie jar is a pretty boring one, it is a metal container which is red on the outside with cows on it, it actually came with 2 cow mugs in it and I thought it was nice and used it as my cookie tin. It keeps the cookies nice and fresh and they dont go stale so I am happy with it. It lives on my fridge and isnt really something that everyone sees.

Yes, I have a cookie jar. My mom bought it for me for my birthday a sunflower cookie jar since my kithchen is done in sunflowers.I bake cookies but I do not put them in the cookie jar because we have pest.. It is though a jar to catch small items that I haven't a clue to put them..So instead of a cookie jar I use it as an extra drawer basically..

I have a cookie jar that matches my china. I laso have a canester set that matches too. It is a corning ivy pattern. So we have a lot of stuff that matches it. Right now I have no cookies in the jar. I occasionally make cookies but I have not made any in a while. Once in a while we buy cookies from the store.

I have a cookie jar that is sitting on top of my frig. It is a snowman~ yes, it is still out in the middle of the summer. It was a gift given to me from a girlfriend. I use it to put candy in. You never know when you are going to get a chocolate craving, so I hide my chocolate in my cookie jar.
