Tin spice containers okay?

I just bought some bulk spices and I have some nice tin spice containers that I got online that I was going to package them in. Is there any problem with using tin for spices? It is food-grade tin. If tin isnt okay, I'd love some recs because I really prefer buying my spices in bulk to save money and all of those little jars. Thanks!

  1. Pretty sure it's fine, especially if it's food grade.

      fwiw, I use empty glass jars for mine (mustard jars, jelly jars, etc.). whatever works!
