Sort of money-saving

I love keeping my staples in glass jars to keep them fresh longer, and I have several with the metal wire around the neck and a clamp thingy in front. One them has sprung its clamp and I want to replace it but I don't know what it is called. I hate having to use the word "thingy" because it sounds immature. Besides, I'm a savvy senior (and I'm not talking high school) who is for darned sure not immature. By the way "gizmo" and "widgit" are even worse. Thanks to all.

Google "French canning jars" --- is that what you mean? Try following the Amazon links and seeing if you can buy the parts separately. I know you can buy the rubber seals.

The proper term is thingamabob. ;0

My favorite word when I don't know what it is, is "dofunny". It's just a word we picked up in high school in the 60s.

It's called a jar bale or a latch.

You can find some replacement wire bales, and the hard-to-find rubber gaskets at the link below. I just hope you can find the right size. -Grainlady

Ha, ha! When I saw the word "staples," I had a vision of metal staples that go into a stapler and was wondering about why you felt the need to keep them fresh.

I wasn't too sure of what they were called until I looked them up. SURPRISE!

When my wife and I were married in 1972 we got a canister set with these latches. Flour, Sugar, Coffee & Tea containers.

Believe it or not we still use them.

You see, we have the BEST money saving plan ever devised.

"Use it up, wear it out. Make it do, or do without."

These canisters have yet to think about wearing out.

Some people have small ones like that, about the size of a spice bottle, and use them for spices.

I have one with dill in it.
