Half-pint jars great for storing spices, etc.
on May 31, 2016
I'm not sure why my purchase is linking to this page which says quart-sized, but I'll leave my review anyway.
I bought these half-pint jars to store smaller amounts of spices. (I keep my larger bulk spices in quart and 2-quart jars.) These vacuumed very well with my Foodsaver and were just the right size for stacking in my cupboard. I also use the 8 oz jars for even smaller amounts.

I know the spices I stored in them will maintain their potency. In addition, since they're Ball canning jars, I know they'll hold up to vacuum pressure and last for years. Very happy with these!
For laser-printable, durable, water-proof label for spice jars (and anything else!), I found these labels to be the perfect fit:
