I found a tube of 175 new regular mason jar lids for $45.00 at a farm store this weekend!  He even had canning jars for near to normal prices.  I didn't need any of them.   

The one thing he did not have is wide mouth lids.  So, I have enough for now but if I run across them I'm going to pick them up.   I think inflation is going to hit and they will be costly everywhere.  

So my lesson this morning is to look at other sources to find things.

How's it going in your neck of the woods?

  1. What a find!! I found pint jars for 8.98 a dozen on walmart . com last week. I was so happy to get them.

  2. I've heard that seed companies are already running out of things for next year too. So save seeds & buy seeds if you want to garden next year.

    I'm taking a break from painting. I just finished painting one coat in my bathroom....goodness the prep work...I hate it. And I am missing my little grandson! He's been with me almost every day of his life so it's weird to not have him. He may be gone another whole week & I'm working hard this week to get things done then I plan to be a lazy daisy for a few days before he returns.

    1. Thanks for the heads up about the seeds Jenny.
      It's a funny thing about the grandchildren when we live so close and watch them so much..We need a break but we can't stand not seeing them. I'm glad everything is alright though.

  3. Everything seems to be going up, so I think you are wise to buy when you find a good deal.
    I think that I was spoiled. I thought if I had the money, I could buy whatever I needed.
    Who would have thought last year that there would be shortages. This may be a hard winter for many people.

  4. I actually have canning jars and lids in my local supermarket - I think it's because I live in a huge city and the only thing that gets canned on a regular basis is tomatoes. I might pick up a box or two next trip just in case. I'll also see if there are extra lids as I could always send them to people who really need them.
    Things are fairly quiet here virus wise - our numbers have held steady at a less than 1% infection rate so that is good. School will start after Labour Day so that is the next big test. The provincial Govt. has come up with big bucks to retrofit airflow systems, PPE for all staff and extra nurses to monitor things and parents do have the option for online learning. Yesterday they made a deal with the unions to allow for a staggered return so everyone is holding heir breath until we see how it goes.

    1. I hope your school goes well! It sounds like your government is right on top of things.

  5. You said, "So my lesson this morning is to look at other sources to find things." I think that is a great idea and example. I'm trying to think of things I might want/need to have in the next few months and then trying to find it. For example, I'd been trying to get parts to repair my dryer for 3 months. My son-in-law ordered them for me at 3 different places and they were still on back order. I'm sure they were probably made in China. So, I got tired of hanging clothes around the house to dry and they aren't soft, even when I use Downy. (My skin is very sensitive in its old age--LOL)!So, I decided it was time for a new dryer. Mine is quite old. The matching washer had to be replaced a few years ago. It will be delivered tomorrow. I'm excited. On a smaller scale, I was unable to get locally the powdered bouillon that I normally use. I was quite disappointed. I checked on Amazon and they had it. It was a much larger box than I usually buy, but the price per envelope was much cheaper, now I'm stocked up. We can't just expect to run out and get things as it was in the past.

    1. You know I'm so glad you were able to buy a new dryer..I think most of the parts are made in China. I would say You made the right decision for sure.
      I know what you mean about hard clothes that are air dried ..they can be tough for sure!
      It's funny how fast our way of life has already changed so fast. Now we have to go hunt for the things we used to take for granted.
