So...I bought a couple tins of tobacco. For some reason, I was thinking that the tobacco (12 oz per) would take up more space, so I bought 1 quart jars (should have gone with 8oz). Instead, I've got one jar with 12 oz of tobacco (packed in good). For long-term storage...am I better off packing the tobacco in tight to get as little air in the container as possible...rather than packing it loosely into two jars? I had hoped to end up with one container for long-term storage and one for short-term (to top off my weekly stash). It looks like I'll have to get smaller jars to accomplish that. Edit: Correction...i'm a dummy. The total volume of a one quart mason jar (assuming you pile it to the top) is 32 oz.
