Inexpensive canning jars [Moved from Home Cooking Board]

In NorCal here and already feedling the pinch of $3.92/gallon of gas and the expense of fresh produce. I'm growing and canning my own vegatables from the yard. Does anyone know where to find cheap canning jars? Thanks

  1. I found all of my canning supplies at hardware stores.

      1. Check out your local Ace Hardware. My friend is an owner of one and she tells me they're very popular.

        1. For my home jam-making project, I buy jars either at Rainbow or Cole Hardware, depending on which part of town I'm in when I realize I need them.

          1. You might also try your local thrift store-- I saw about 20 at the Daly City Goodwill the other day for $.50/each.
