    Not for those dammed curtain crawlers but for trading.

    I bought some Hershey's chocolate syrup, and thought if I could put these in 2.5 oz curtain crawler jars they would be good trading material... or if they were filled with moonshine.

    Ebay... pretty much $1.00 each for the 4 oz size.

    Anybody have a source for small glass jars ... cheap?

    Half pint is 8 oz, I was thinking something smaller, I did buy a case of quart 32 oz canning jars at w-mart Friday, i think for about $9.00.

    Cheap, well, that's in the eye. Try speaking to the receptionist at the local pediatrician's office. They might be able to put you in contact with a grizmoid's family that would save you the jars.

    UncleMorgan I eat vegetables. My friends are not vegetables.

    Well, a traditional shot is 1 oz, so you might consider those e-liquid squeeze bottles. They're all over the Internet at about ten to 15 cents each.

    (I can see it now: Right after the Apocalypse, Hillary Clinton walks into your bar and says "Bartender, gimme a squeeze!"...)

    I don't know what a curtain crawler is. But regarding baby food & the jars- I have 2 jars that I need to eat and wash.

    I love baby food jars. Handy for nails, dried seeds, rooting herbs in. I can never have enough. They are are good for storing small amounts but they do not reseal again. Maybe good to have if SHTF for handing out small quantities of stuff like baking soda, coconut oil.

    Grizmoids, curtain crawlers, curtain climbers, crumb crushers and many more with the same meaning. Kids, especially those of the younger types.

    Hey lets get this back on the subject, I'm talking about jars.

    I have no kid, no grandkids, or curtain crawlers, that was a choice me and my XYL made.

    I'm talking jars...

    Comprende' usted?

    Si, senor, compren' bueno. Now, call the pediatrician, pronto. Or, call your pharmacy and see if they stock "just the right size" glass pill bottles with lids.

    so did you check out the links for the plastic ones? 2 oz @ 17 cents each for 500 and 4 oz @ 22 cents each for 550.
    caps for same @ 6 to 8 cents each. so you would be talking clear plastic 2 or 4 oz bottles complete for 25 to 30 cents each.
    lots of liquor comes in clear plastic bottles.

    I think it is a good idea to a point. I prefer glass over plastic but like I said, those lids do not go back on tightly. If you were a SHTF beekeeper, you could put honey in them.

    test tubes, plastic or glass, tight seal, highly portable. Horizons expanded, enough said

    And
    hold your cigars

    Seems to me one could use a thin film of food grade silicone glue and renew the seal on the lid perfectly .
