I've recently started a new job and as such am skintaroo so once again everyone will be getting home made gifts for Christmas.

I need to find somewhere I can buy wee jars for mulled wine and gift bags. Will probably need around 10 of each. can anyone help me?

Charity shops or markets/jumble sales.

Ask if anybody you know has any going spare? They tend to be the sort of thing that 'mounts up' in folk's houses.

Home Bargains might have some nice cheap jars if there's one near you smile

When I need jars for stuff like this I tend to look at what's in the supermarket basic ranges that I can reuse. I needed a couple of bottles so I bought pickling vinegar from Sainsburys yesterday for 90p! I'll decant and use the vinegar and the bottles will be reused for making flavoured booze gifts.

You can get new jars on ebay for £10.25 for 12 including postage.

Buy basics jam or lemon curd for 22p and wash off the labels. Then paint the tops with blackboard paint.

I think ikea do those jarst (like kilner) from 80p upwards. Not expensive at all. I used them for home made scone mixes once

Try a wanted ad on Freecycle/Freegle in your area, lots of people like me collect them but rarely get around to using them.
