Welcome back to the Frugal Tuesday series! I started this last year as a way for me and the other readers to answer any questions that you might have that are frugal or at least semi- frugal-related. If you have a question to ask, just go HERE and fill out the form!
Have you found a source for buying canning lids at a discount? Several family members and I all can and we could easily go together to buy bulk if they were cheaper than locally. ~ Cindy
I have yet to find a good price on canning lids in bulk, except for a small Amish store we stopped at in Wisconsin. I have found some decent prices but then when you factor in shipping, it’s not worth it. The cheapest place I’ve found lids is Menards. They are $1.63 for regular lids and $2.27 for wide mouth lids.
They are just a little bit more expensive at Walmart. I also checked the prices at Lowes and they are much more expensive there. You can buy them in bulk from Lehmans. They cost works out to be .14 per lid before you factor in the shipping cost, whereas the price at Menards equals out to .13 per lid.
Of course you could always go with the Tattler Reusable lids. They are higher up front cost but they will last you for many years.
Has anyone else found a good source for buying canning lids?
