For those who bottle their honey for sale- 1. What kind of jars/containers/lids do you use? 2. Where do you buy them? 3. How much do you pay? and, for what quantities? 4. Do you pay sales tax on the purchase? Looking for feedback as I am in sticker shock at the moment. I pack my honey in reusable glass canning jars. The last time I bought them (about 3 years ago) I paid $3.69/dozen at Big Lots. I use the two piece lids that come with the jars, so my total cost was .3075/jar, complete. I purchased several pallets' worth of them at the time. I also did not pay sales tax on them as food containers for resale were tax exempt in my county. I am almost out of those jars and have been shopping around for them in Minnesota- the best price I have found so far is $5.99/dozen, also at Big Lots, and I would have to pay sales tax on top of that, yikes. I have heard that Dollar general sells them for $4.89/doz, but we do not have DG in Minnesota. And anyway, I checked their website and the jars don't even show up so I am not sure if they do carry them or not. I am wondering if I am going to have to quit using the canning jars and go to a one-use jar. I can get those from a wholesaler 3 hours away for around .42/jar with lid, but I still have to pay tax, and I hate to use jars that will be tossed after one use- goes against my principles, aaargh... Any input will be greatly appreciated.
