Default Best storage containers (UK)

Hi i was wondering what airtight storage containers people are using for their shisha in the UK?

I just store mine in a ziplock bag and then in a standard plastic container. It wasnt a problem for me before, but now i have alot more tobacco open at a time, i currently have 16 flavours and would like to make sure that last as long as possible so am looking for the best airtight strorage containers you have foudn in the UK, and not too pricey lol

Ive seen some glass mason jar type ones that patelbadboy has and look good, but not sure how good they were.

oh forgot to say, as i use a ziplock bag and then a container, alot of the juice get stuck to the bag and though that having a really good airtigh container i can just dump the tobbacco straight into it!!

Personally, I use glass jars for everything. Bags tend to leak out more often because they are not airtight. Also, less juice is wasted when you put it in a jar, at least I think so.

edit: except my zaghoul, that just stays right in its little box.

yeah i think i agree with the jars wasting less juice. another reason for me to store shisha in jars. as my ziplock bags are pretty big, it also is alot messier putting your hand in to get some.

I hcecked on some of those klip it storage containers and they are damn expensive! i dont mind spending on them as in the long run they will out better if they keep the shisha more flavourful and make it last longer, but you are right they are really expensive!

im gonna check out if i can find any other containers, ive come accross a few airtight ones already which look like better value.

would anyone reccomend square/oblong or round ones? also anyone know what size would be good for a 250g pack? i t might help me buy a rigt size container and not end up with ones taking loads of space lol
