Does anyone know where the best place is to buy small canning jars for homemade jam? I for some reason decided at the last minute to make homemade strawberry jam to put in my baskets for wedding guest favors! It’s easy right? LOL!

There may be better deals on line but Lynneea and Tyler made 24 quarter pint and 16 1/2 pints of jam last weekend. Jars were about $8.50 per dozen at Kmart and everywhere else we looked.

This might sound really weird, but if you’re doing smaller jars, maybe recycled baby food jars? I bet they sell them on Ebay! Might save you a bit on the actual favor amount you have to give, and it’s recycling! You could add a great cloth top to the jar tops (glued on, so guests don’t see the baby food jar top!) or something like that! Just an idea 🙂

This may sound like an odd place, but I have seen canning jars of all sizes at home improvements stores like Home Depot. That is usually the cheapest place to get them.

A co-worker of mine is making jam for another co-worker who is getting married. She got her jars at Walmart and said if you can’t find them there they also have them at Lowe’s.

Of all places I found them today at our local grocery store when I went to candy for our other favors. I got 12 4 oz cute jars for $5! Now I am thinking I have too much favors but oh well! I love making stuff for my family/friends and everything is pretty much homemade but its wearing me out! Thanks ladies!

Honestly, I know they sell them at Wal-Mart, so I’m sure the price is very reasonable.
