This is less a blog post and more a PSA. I just went in to my *ahem* Neighborhood Ace Hardware, and found that a crap ton of their canning supplies are on sale.
Every Ace is different, but this was the deal at ours. At least one of each size of jars were on sale, but the best deal I saw was 12 packs of pint jars on sale for $7. Needless to say, those jars are long gone, but my store ordered two cases specifically for me that I can pick up on Monday at the sale price. The tags said the sales would continue until August 31st, so I may be getting a lot more than two cases in the long run. What a great size too!
Anyway, if I come across any other great deals on goodies, I will keep you all posted!
