I won't even tell you how many lids I have. But, given the fact that I had quite a few before the plandemic.... and I save all of my "in like new shape" lids, and bought at least 40 boxes last year... yeah... I'm set for a while!

I actually have enough both reg and WM for this yr but will buy some to have for next. I've been seeing lids & rings, lot of jars, a few just lids. Most have been limited available and in grocery's...Food Lion has had Ball at $2.99 reg and $3.58 wide. Ok Considering no shipping to add. Like gas, ain't going back to old price any time soon. :old an Ace hardware has had some, prices close.

When I've seen lids it's been 2.25 regular and 2.45 wide mouth. That's pretty normal around here.

They go fast when they get in. I may help that along by posting it to my local craft-barter-farm group when I see them. If I don't need them, I feel I should give a heads up to those I know do.

I had to pick a few things up in town this morning. Walmart had regular & large mouth lids & rings, no lids only. There weren't many of those. They did have 3 cases of smooth sided pint jars.

I still haven't found any just lids. Bought some lids with rings over the winter. Now those are gone, and the stores probably won't stock again until summer.

Dollar General has had boxes of reg at $1.75 a doz. No WM just lids there seen yet. Golden harvest brand, made in USA. Jarden LLC, who owns Foodsaver, also...used to be part of Ball, so I feel ok. Wm should be along soon. Jars, and ring/lid sets We're in good supply, also.

Weren't there last week, just lid pkgs, other stuff was.

That's my public service announcement for today. ;)

Saw jars at walmart yesterday... some pints, qts, a couple pkgs of jelly jars. No lids and no lids and bands combos. But things look to be trickling in. I paid more for the lids than needed maybe, but I have them stashed and a friend took some. Delivered right to my door next day. So, I am still okay with that.
But I will be checking dollar general here to see if they have any.... I have used golden harvest many times. And I swear by my Foodsaver vacuum sealers. I buy my vacuum bags off e-bay.... got a great deal 2 years ago and won't need any for ages. Pre cut bags for less than I could get them anywhere... I think they were out of Canada.... nice and heavy. Nice people to do business with. I will have to look up the name if I ever get somewhat organized here in the next 100 years. Have many rolls of foodsaver brand vacuum bag material.... more than enough for quite a while.

I prefer rolls for my Foodsaver. I have too many different sizes to deal with. I still have a lot of Weston brand rolls I got on sale locally. I actually don't care for the Foodsaver brand rolls. I also got some big no name rolls on sale last March before everyone went nuts on those, too.

My Gamesaver Silver I got back in 2008 has been giving up. Doesn't seal sometimes and has had trouble locking into vac mode for a while. I've been looking for a good sale for a new one for 2 years. Doesn't look like they make the Silver or Gold anymore. I got a Big Game for $75 off so I can store again.
