Cheap Glass Jars in Northern NJ

Recommended Posts

I tend to use the old fashioned 16 ounce glass peanut butter jars for a lot of other stuff- salt, hand blended pickled jalapenos, chunks of romano and reggiano, etc. etc. I don't break them too frequently, but over the years, I've lost a few and, because everything is in plastic now, I'm having a hard time replenishing my stock.

 

Shoprite sells natural peanut butter for $2.49, but, I'm not much of a fan, so I'd pretty much be paying $2.49 for a jar, which seems kind of outrageous to me.  Does anyone have leads for anything cheaper?  The open mouth/straight walls are pretty important to me.

 

Edit: I'm also looking for straight walled 32 oz. jars also.  Fattal's in Patterson sells their tahini in those- at least they did, and the wide mouth makes them about a hundred times easier to wash than the old 32 oz. mayo jars.

How about wide mouth pint canning jars? The wide mouth ones have straight sides. They cost about $8.50 for a dozen at walmart.com - I assume they are about the same in the stores. If you want to take the time, check out garage sale ads - you can often find canning jars that way. I got some recently for .25 each. I like the 24 oz. ones for storage too -also wide mouth, straight sides.They are harder to find though.

Ball Wide Mouth 1.5-Pint Canning Jars are straight-sided and easy to clean.

About $10.40 for 9 jars at Bed, Bath and Beyond with the 20% coupon.

The small jelly jars are also straight-sided.

The wide-mouth quarts have a small hip—but still easy to clean.

Hmmmmm... I have about 10 pb jars, and about three times that many lids, so this would give me another size lid to have to worry about. Still, though, I like that price- a lot. Thanks.

The jars come with lids.
