You are welcome, my sister---glad the sale is there...and I would have already been loading my SUV if not for Kmart saleGotta find me an Ace Hardware store this weekend.
I'm glad you got the jars discount and you think like me...I won't drive 25/30 miles to Aldi's or Sam's or SaveALot unless I'm buying enough(translate that saving enough) to reimburse me the gas money spent.one ace store would not honor ad.:gaah: drove 20 miles to the other. they were out but told me that they would order them for me if I paid first. I did, they did, and the jars will be in Tuesday. :2thumb: she did wonder wonder why I wanted so many, said most people were only getting two cases. totle trip for the jars was 60 miles one way
I think that is a super idea---I look through EVERY circular coming to this house--but many working preppers don't have time.how could we start a sticky about good deals at various semi national stores so that we all can help each other save.
I've never had all mine filled at once either but jars get broke. Some may be given to friends and relatives as gifts and never return. And if/when things turn really bad, they would be worth their weight in gold as a barter item.I don't need any jars ,never can more food that we have jars anyway.
I don't think you can ever have too many cans. Thanks everyone for letting me know. I have been looking at prices all summer and this is the best price yet. I'll be there first thing in the morning!:2thumb:I don't need any jars ,never can more food that we have jars anyway.
And those extra can always be used for other things..I have a few filled with popcorn on my shelfs. For those who can't afford water drums(or get to Lexington, KY) someone suggested filling jars with water instead of just sitting on the shelf...Great idea..water will be gold WTSHTF..I think.I've never had all mine filled at once either but jars get broke.

I have about 1200 here at the house. I got most of them at auctions for about a nickel a piece. I keep about 15 dozen at the "hunting camp." They may never be used but if I need them, they will be there.
IMHO you can never have too many jars.
