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.

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

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 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.

Gotta love a typo lol, nothing quite like a refreshing tobacco enema.

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!)

if blend was good, add to new tin of the same blend. if it wasn't all that good and if it's less then 1/4 bowl, i dump it.
