DEAL OF THE DAY


Stopped by Kroger grocery store on a whim, and found these.  A set of Ball wide mouth pint jars.  There was one missing, so it was a case of 11 instead of 12.


And they marked it down from $12.99 to $5.25...more than half price, for missing one jar.  I'll take that deal any day!  Will keep checking back for more!

Never hurts to have a supply of canning jars!

Can't pass up a good deal like that.

See, I told you you need to come to the farm. I have about a million, some even antique, and don't plan on doing much canning anymore. I was surprised how many old-timers used mayonnaise jars and such.

WOW! If you had gotten the $3 coupon in the inserts, those would have been $2.25. The coupon is on my mind because I used it yesterday. Those would have been $8.94 at WM. Wherever you got those, don't pay that full price, ever.

I just love to luck upon a good markdown for any reason. Wide mouth pints are absolutely the best. You can use those for leftovers in the refrigerator because they are wide mouth (easy to fill and easy to get the food out) and take up less real estate on the shelf. This town never marks down canning supplies!

It's funny, I did actually look at it and then walk away but after a few feet I realized, "$5 for eleven new jars is not bad", ha.

1st Man said...

Really? Wow! Maybe you should sell online, ha. Who knows what the future brings, ha.

Oh dang, that would be a great deal, will have to watch for that. This was at Kroger, a grocery store chain. I usually have gotten them at either WM or Target. But I'll have to remember that. Wide mouth jars are the best aren't they? I never thought about leftovers, great idea. Thanks!!!

Lucky on occasion, now if I could just make it a full time job, ha.

1st Man said...

Yep, it was a good deal for sure. Funny how they justified one missing jar for such a price reduction, but hey, I'll take it. Thanks!!

The wide mouths are great for making a salad in and taking to work or a dessert in the 1/2 pint jars. So many great uses.
This year I will be making my pumpkin pies in the wide mouth canning rings

We use these for drinking glasses. Very sturdy.

1st Man,

You've found a nice deal in the grocery store. I wish we had deals like this in the grocery store :-)

1st Man said...

We use them for that too. They are very sturdy, that's for sure. Plus they just look cool and "farmhousey", ha.

It's odd to find deals like that at the grocery store but hey, I'll take em where I can find them, LOL!
