So I went a little overboard, but the deal was too good to pass up. Last week I picked up over 400 swing top bottles for $120. They completely filled my truck bed. I may take a picture once they're all good and clean.

It was over 20 boxes of bottles. Completely filled the back of my truck. I just cleaned 60 of them last weekend (enough for 2 batches) and it took over 2 hours!

I may have to seriously consider that bottle tree!
