I have several one pint mason jars. I buy tobacco by the pouch or tin. As a result, there is a lot of empty space in my jars.

Any issues with putting two similar tobaccos, say two burleys, in the same jar? One loose, and one in a pouch or ziplock bag?

thanks

To be honest , I've never even thought about that before but I do know this ..... dont worry about empty space in a jar . If you have enough jars to house your opened tin/pouch stuff , do it :thumbs:

Thanks, guys. I'm not really worried about the empty space affecting the tobacco. I just want to make efficient use of the jars I have. Why use 24 jars if 12 will work just fine?

My recommendation would be to buy enough of one pouch or tin to fill the jar. Then try to have a little left over to smoke now.

I must admit that I saw the title of this thread and a big grin spread across my mug. I thought we were gonna talk about passing a jar. It’s been a long while but some days I’d take a pull.

To answer the op question . I guess real similar might be ok .... like a couple of the " match " Edgeworth ready rubbed etc... but I wouldn't go too crazy with it

Well, I'd rather be wide than deep at this point.

Well brother, I'm no expert, but I do it...just not exactly as you describe. I put pouches/ziplocks of similar types of tobacco in them, but only after wrapping each pouch and ziplock with heavy duty Saran as if I were wrapping nuclear waste. Of course, I have no idea how it's going to work long-term. I may open a jar to find that all the vanilla aros have the same taste...and that may not actually be a bad thing. ;)
