Besides as much as possible. I retire in 1 and 1/2 years and my goal is to have 1 tin for each week for 10 years. When I think about it that does not seem like enough.

I wouldn't call mine a goal, but rather a ceaseless recurrence with the hopes of always having a fat cellar.

I have surpassed my goal. I only smoke about 1 bowl/week and it will take me a long time to work through what I have, even though I am young. I would guess I have under 50 lbs.

I think you should go for 20 years...1040 tins. If you get 2 oz. tins that's 130 pounds Zito! You got 1.5 years to make it happen, good luck!

I'm just barely beginning to stash tobacco, so my current goal is to find a dozen (or so) blends that I want to have on hand at all times. So far, I've got 3 or 4 "must haves", and one has already been discontinued (Sugar Barrel), so I'm off to a slow start...

No goals, I just keep stacking tins and filling jars as I see fit. I don't have the funds nor the space to go bananas and order up 20 tins of a blend when it comes back in stock on each site.

I need a new pipeline. My Fiance moved up to WA from OR so I can no longer get it through her... sigh. I have 20lb or so.

Today I finished jarring up all of my bulk and fifty some open tins. It took 48 half pint jars, 28 pints,

and 34 quarts. I still have about 5 pounds in unopened tins. I put labels on the jar lids that include the weight of the contents, and that totaled out at 46 pounds. That was a lot of work that took 2 days to complete! I made an order of 4 lbs today. I think I should put the brakes on the speed I'm going. I just started this in February. I will have a total of 880 ounces, and if one smoked 2oz/week that's damn near 17 years and I'm 61 and smoked cigarettes for 42 years. Now trying to be a glass half full guy I think I probably have all the cellar I'm gonna need. I guess I could rationalize that I'm doing it as an investment. :rofl: It's too much fun to just stop cold turkey, right? :roll:

The TAD is nearly impossible to quit cold turkey...
Well done on the jarring tho. That can be an arduous task!

My goal right now is 33lbs., then when that is done it's 66 lbs. Are you seeing a pattern? I'm still trying blends I want to keep around, as well as stocking up on the stuff I already know I like.

My goal right now is not to cellar as much as it is to try the widest variety of blends possible. As I try new blends I'll be jarring up what I have, so a bit of a cellar will be built by default. Once I settle on a collection of blends that I prefer I will then set my goals on building a modest cellar. I smoke one or two bowls a week and my budget is minimal so a modest cellar is all I need, and more importantly, all I can afford.

Hey Zito, when you know what blends you will call "keepers" part of your cellar should be bulk

because it's much more affordable. The online sellers all have sales on blends every week and

if you get on their email list they will let you know what and when. Then get some canning jars,

that come in several sizes.

LOL, I am pretty proud that I haven't bought any pipes in 5 weeks. See guys, it can be done. I will admit though that I have bought some tobacco in that time, so I ain't a perfect role model on the TAD front.

Realistically, I'd like to have enough to smoke for maybe fifteen years without buying any.
I like some tobacco fresher, so I'm not all that concerned about buying enough to last the fifty years American life expectancy says I'll have. Smoking ten year old Bohemian Scandal makes me realize that there is definitely an upper limit for latakia blends being to my taste. With Virginias, I'd love to be smoking some at forty years.
