Can anyone recommend a cheap source for mason jars. I've tried the Big Lots! in my area (Los Angeles), but they're so disorganized. I think I keep overlooking them and the employees give me a blank stare when I ask about them. I even took one with me as a visual aid.

Sigh. This would never happen when I lived in Texas.

I am not from LA, so this may or may not help you. (sorry) I know Walmart carries them, but they aren't always cheap. I always have good luck finding them at yard sales, flea markets and thrift stores. I recently just got about 50 for $3 at a yard sale. I also find them on my local Craig's List on a normal basis. You could also try a freecyle group in your area. I'm always getting free craft stuff through mine because people just want it out of the house. In case you don't know, freecycle groups can be found at www.freecycle.org and craig's list is at www.craigslist.org

But, you've probably already thought of all of those. Sorry I can be of more help. I've lived in three states in the past 8 months (IL/MO, MS, NM) and those resources usually help me.

Try Goodwill stores, especially at the end of the month when everything's marked down.

I'd definitely try walmart. I'm from Texas (I love them for sweet tea), and they are everywhere, now we are temporarily living in Washington and I've found them in a few grocery stores.

Also, my husbands favorite spaghetti sauce comes in a mason jar and I just keep those... Its a national brand... I just can't think of the name of it.

I can find the jars and their regular lids, but I can't for the life of me locate the plastic screw-on tops that are supposed to be available for them (I have found them online, but others had assured me they'd bought them locally).  Anyone seen them in a bricks and mortar store??


TIA,

Diane B.

Classico!  It's what we use too Smiley  I keep the jars.  Actually, I keep all jars.  My husband has installed a moratorium on any further collection of jars.  It's gotten out of hand.  If you live in Georgia you're welcome to come take mine Smiley
