I've been reusing lids for years. I pick through and make sure the lids aren't bent, the rubber part is not compressed real flat... put them in a pan and simmer for a bit.... yeah, keep them hot and sterile for using but I like to have them simmer a bit as it seems to plump up the rubber edge a bit.
I like the tattlers and I still use the old glass bail top jars too. Jar rubbers can be found and they also can be reused to some extent. If one or two don't seal, you get a new lid or jar rubber and redo with the next batch or just chill and eat.
gonna try that next canning season, thanks

My Mom and I are grabbing everything we can before people go ape$hi// and freak out on the canning supplies again. We snagged a whole box of wide mouth lids and are going to grab regular mouth jars and lids when we find them. Chinamart had 4 boxes regular mouth pint jars and quart jars and one box of wide mouth pint jars. I bought all the pint jars and 3 boxes of quart jars. They had 6 or 8 more boxed of quart but didnt have the room in the cart. 🤣
