Not sure if you guys have Gold Peak Tea in your stores, but it tastes great and the 59oz size carafe is great for storing/reusing yeast.

My local Ace Hardware had a sale on pint mason jars, 12-pack for $7.  I'll be attempting to wash my yeast for the first time. 

My LHBS here in Denver gets fresh Wyeast fairly regularly, especially the popular strains.  I just did a Saison and used 3711, which was only 11 days past the date stamp.

+2 for Mason jars (currently).

But my collection keeps growing and is taking over my fridge. I think I should move to preforms and a little rack.
