Be sure to check Big Lots..last fall and winter, I paid 7.50 for quart with regular lids...So far the Dollar Store or Dollar General has cheapest canning supplies around here.
Quart jars were about $8.50.
I like Big Lots for various things..oddities?? And I just called and told the manager, it would be a great idea to put the canning jars on a weekly circular because that price might bring in shoppers faster than a nickel on a candy bar will...duh!!Thanks Jay,I never go there but maybe I should.
I did check here and that's why I went to Big Lots...chinamart put theirs back in stock...why?? who knows...but the stock girl said they had a stockroom full...couldn't understand why??Be sure to check your local Wal-mart at the end of October/beginning of Novemebr. We scored 25 cases of Ball quart jars last year for $3.50 a case.
Also check yard sales. If you don't see any ask if they have any. Offer $2.00 a case.
Everyones getting greedier.Our vet thinks he should make up for the economy on his custormers.Farmers think they should too.I did check here and that's why I went to Big Lots...chinamart put theirs back in stock...why?? who knows...but the stock girl said they had a stockroom full...couldn't understand why??
I told her---1)no jobs and folks had to buy the 39 and 45 cent cans instead of canning...and 2)the farmers prices didn't allow us to can, or at least I had to buy 45 cent cans, couldn't afford farmer's market last year.
Thanks Joyful,My dr. does'nt charge as much for a visit as my vet!.Of course they do charge more for surgery.Meerkat-- Check for programs in your area.
Once a month, petco/petsmart have shot clinics for $7-10 each.
And neutering/spaying program twice a year at the local animal shelters for $25.
My MIL lives near a vet school who does neutering/spaing for free, year round!
We "fired" our vet 3 years ago when he tried to charge us $700 for an unnecessary surgery, when a $4 bottle of antibuitics cleared up the problem. He was also charging $300+ for yearly checkups on our dog. NOT AGAIN. Heard from neighbor that he is raising his prices AGAIN.
