Great gift!! Of course, there's no moving something that size for me....weight and fear of dropping. :old I haven't seen that many canning supplies in a group since last winter! Glad things are getting in stock. Lids will be about the only thing I'll want in spring. Good now. Will probably buy a few dz jars just to add to current stock. I suspect some of those jars will be from yard sales. :lol::lol:. Those who have changed their minds.

My key to canning supplies is off season buying. A group of us get together an order and place it direct to Newell. Our order comes right out of the Ball warehouse. Last time we as a group placed over an $8000 order. Looks like this time it might hit $12000 or more as there are a few more interested. I hope the order goes through this winter as warehouse is still low when we last talked to them

@Fixit I have often thought to order for a group. Here, I'd be footing the whole bill because not enough serious canners to even make a group. Well there may be several but many are not part of any group that is organized enough. Easier to do only for self.

When I was a teen you saw things like sewing circles....maybe some now and I just don't know them. Have considered working up a flyer to take to the goat auction to see if any people are interested. Unless a good discount, can't see any participation. Certainly not the amounts you suggest! That is a HUGE order.

Some things are not that great of saving . About $2 a case on pints and $2.50 a case on quarts saved. Usually about $4 a case on 1/2 gallons an major saving on lids by buying the sleeved unprinted lids. This is compared to local pricing not ball list price.
