    I love to use 1/2 gallon ball canning jars for canisters and i can seal them with my seal a meal (no bugs) I also label what it is and for freshness the ones i do not use daily :-) I use them also to store all dry food products like beans, rice, cornmeal etc....

    Love this. I can't throw away the glass jars from Classico pasta sauce (Atlas canning jars) in the large size Costco sells. They switched the profile to a narrower top and smaller lid for a while but have gone back to the wide mouth jars. Now I am afraid they will go back again, so I have become a jar hoarder! Thanks for sharing your ideas.
