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. ;)
I scored a whole flat of regular lids plus 16 boxes in another flat at DG. I bought them all! Muhahaha!

I have been buying lids every time I find any. I may have a 2 year supply now. I’ve been writing the year purchased on the box so I can use the oldest first.

My husband has told me I need to buy lids when I see them even if that means I end up with 5 years worth of lids. I've been picking up any wide mouth because my uncle will need them.

Jars aren't too hard to find here finally, even if it isn't huge quantities. Ive seen everything on sizes now.

I scored a dozen wide mouth lids yesterday. Only that store has had lids with any regularity here.

Between that and what he has left over from last year when I sent my stash, it might be enough for my uncle.

I haven't seen any lids in the last couple of weeks here. A few jars here/there and boxes of lids & rings, but not just lids.

Lids are good for bartering around here right now.

I'll probably buy another dozen wide mouth lids for my stash.

Mom told me I need to trade some boxes of lids for some of my uncle's salsa. She says it's the best she's ever had and my brothers can't convince him to part with any. He does trade though.

Still no boxes of just lids here in any of the Walmarts or the dollar stores .... Saw 4 boxes of wm lids and rings in Walmart the other day.... some boxes of pints and quarts.... but still very sparse.
