Michael's is a very expensive place to buy jars, at least where I am, so they'd be my last resort. I've mostly seen them selling jars individually, even half pints.

I often saved jars I got pasta sauce and other food in, and they work great but can turn into an odd assortment of shapes and sizes (but so what?).

There probably won't be a shortage of spawn bags this year, so it could be time for some of y'all to explore those.

I've had good luck at small mom & pop hardware stores, and one by me even stocks boxes of 1/2 gallon jars (I think they came in boxes of four but can't remember exactly).

Exactly, If you buy the Pasta Sauce called "Classico" they are true re-usable Mason Jars....
