My Kitchen has been Overrun!!!

Ok. I think I'm ready to admit I might have enough canning jars.

I responded to an add on Craigslist from an older lady who wanted to winnow down her collection of canning jars now that she was preserving for two instead of a whole family. For a few dollars I gained all these canning jars and she gained more room for her fabric stash. It's mostly pint jars (several dozen) with a few of the quilted crystal 1/2 pint jars and about 20 quart jars. Since it'll probably be a couple years until we have our garden fully up and running, I probably wont use all these jars right away but it's nice to know I'll have what I need when I need it.


  1. Great find! I need to keep an eye on Craigslist more often than I do.

  2. I lucked out. I've been checking for weeks and this was the first lot put on craigslist. Also, try putting an add in the wanted section on Craigslist. I put one in offering to buy old canning jars and a couple days later someone called me and gave me an unused case of widemouth quart jars just because they didn't need them anymore.
