A thrifty mother-of-two has recreated Khloe Kardashian’s famous Oreo jar with perfectly aligned Oreos for less than $10.
The woman, from Victoria, jumped on the trend after she purchased 11 packets of red velvet-flavoured Oreo biscuits on sale for just $2.75, or 25 cents each.
Her $6 glass jar from Kmart was perfectly filled to the brim with the vibrant cookies after she layered each piece around the edge until she reached the top.
The creation came to a total of just $8.75.

The mother said her inspiration came from the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star
‘Found some Oreos at my local supermarket for 25 cents a packet. Used a 3.8-litre jar and 11 packs of Oreos,’ the woman wrote in a Facebook group, adding her inspiration came from the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star.
Despite saving money after buying the heavily discounted cookies, the mother noted the ‘best-before’ date printed on the packaging is January 17, 2021.
However, the woman laughed it off, saying: ‘It’s in four days time… but I’ll still eat them after the ‘best before’ date is up.’
According to the Food Standards of Australia, you can still eat foods for a while after the best-before date as they should be safe – but they may have lost some quality.
Many shared their own creations, after perfectly arranging the vibrant cookies in the glass jar after layering each piece around the edge until they reached the top
Dozens of mothers were amazed with her efforts, describing her creation as ‘satisfying’ to look at.
Many said they just didn’t have the ‘patience’ to arrange the cookies like this while others said the biscuits ‘wouldn’t even make it into the jar’ in their home.
‘How do people’s OCD not kick in when people start eating from the jar? Putting biscuit alignment all out of whack. I couldn’t stand it,’ one wrote.
A second mother said: ‘My little kiddies would just walk away with the whole jar and hide in the cubby house. That’s temptation in a jar for them right there.’
And a third added: ‘That’s pretty but I prefer to scoff them straight from the packet while I hide from the kids.’
Once the jars are perfectly stacked with Oreos around the edge, some prefer to fill the centre with leftover cookies while one woman suggested placing a glass cup.
