    What do you guys do when you get to the last little bit of a tin or jar and it's not enough for a bowl? Throw it in a community jar and make a mystery blend? Worm food? This is only an issue if it is a blend I'm not collaring.

    Add it to another tin of the same, smoke a partial bowl, or throw it in the trash.

    Just put a little pinch between your cheek and gums.

    Mystery jar,
    Sometimes it’s good, sometimes not so much.

    I usually see the end coming because I use glass jars, and I adjust my fills to end up with little or no leftovers.

    Everyone has their own way with the final bit of tobacco in a tin, jar, pouch, etc. I don't like the mystery jar approach since the flavors get too muddy and sometimes harsh. I often take the whole remaining pinch and mix it with a thoughtfully chosen blend that I think it will complement. Usually this works well enough, and often it's quite good or better. I don't throw out good tobacco. Bad tobacco I put on the garden as insecticide.

    Adjust fills should take care of most of it. What's left is essentially dust worth twenty cents at best. Toss it.

    I do everything I can to make it fit! Literally. I mean seriously, have you seen the rims of my pipes?

    If it's good, put it on top of a complementary blend. If it's not so good, put it at the bottom, under something good.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    I also stuff my own cigs, so I just add it to my cigarette tobacco. Do the same thing If I dry more than will fit in my bowel.

    Leaving aside bowels, drying a bunch at a time is a good thing. Just stick the extra in a Mason jar, and less wait for the next bowel. Er, bowl.

    Smoke and enjoy.

    Ernest Hemingway once said: "Never delay kissing a pretty girl or opening a bottle of whiskey". I apply the same spirit to finishing a blend, even if it's the last of a discontinued mixture (I'm looking at you, Frog Morton's Cellar!)

    I’ve recently started putting my leftovers into a jar. When I get enough, I’m going to press it into a crumble Kake. Could be terrible, could be great

    Missouri Meerschaum makes a really small cob. (We’ve used them as a Christmas tree ornaments.) I also have a couple of clay pipes with tiny bowls - no more than about a pinch size. These are based on early European designs from the time when tobacco was extremely expensive & only the wealthy could afford it.

    I have a jar labeled Frankenstein
    All leftovers and off cuts end up there and it is smoked towards the end of the year at the annual new years pipe party.

    Keep calm...smoke a pipe.
