I keep a few empty tins and baggies lying around and just throw like half an ounce from a jar into a baggie or tin if I want to put it back in rotation. This way you've always got variety, and you've always got stuff aging.
Before joining this site I only smoked what I could get in a jar at a B&M. Now I have a little cellar and adopted the same idea Johnny McMancup.

I'm glad I cracked open my OGS, it is delicious! I can't discern what the year and a half of age has done, but it certainly hasn't declined! I still feel weird when my cellar number goes down even by a tin, but so be it.

Yum. I smoked a couple tins, but it's been a while. I've got four sealed tins. I want to wait another year and crack another.

Two thoughts:

1) The alternative to your cellar out living you is for you to run out of tobacco before you die! 8O

2) I came to pipes from cigars. I still feel like I can buy a tin for the price of 2 $5 cigars. So, I still feel like pipe tobacco is a bargain. That makes it easier for me to open tins from the cellar, smoke 2/3 and give the rest away to someone who wants to try it.

Same here. I still enjoy my cigars, but pipes are more relaxing and the cost is far less in the long run. Once my cigar stash runs out, I doubt I will have more than a couple on hand at any given time.

Besides, giving away the last third of a nice tin is easy, giving away the last third of a cigar is difficult no matter how good it is. :wink:

Some haunting stuff in this thread. That may not be the exactly right word, but it's close.

Never met him, personally, just a few PMs. But I smoked, and gave away, some of his tobacco. He and I were both particularly fond of McC's Samovar.

however Rusty's post about cellaring is a good read here, even if it is tough for me to read his stuff now

Cellar Frugality

Post by calvinistanglican » Wed Jan 17, 2018 4:23 am

Haunting indeed; this coming from the man who just spent the last two days with Rusty's collection of pipe and tobacco....all of it.

I will be posting a new thread but felt it worth mentioning here that Rusty said it best at the beginning of this topic wrt a cellar....you build it up, then you draw from it, and continue to feed the cellar. You don't build a cellar, then on the side, buy tobacco to consume while protecting the cellar. You smoke your cellar and buy to replace or augment that.

I have limited time this morning, but hopefully tonight I'll be able to report to you all what has happened in the last few days.

As well, it is Mrs. Rusty's wish that I sell off Rusty's pipes. Since I'm in charge, CPS gets first crack at any pipes. Again, I'll be posting in a new thread later this morning.

SMOKE YOUR CELLARS and BUILD BEHIND WHAT YOU SMOKE. And all this talk of what's left when you die is SO front and centre for me right now.

Pax,

Eric

Yeah, this isn't it. I spent a lot of time yesterday searching for it.

It's definitely interesting to read his words based upon recent events, and to take them a little more to heart.
