Bulk spices

Normally I buy spices in the containers, but lately I have been buying them in bulk at the local organic store. I put them in the Tupperware spice containers, very handy since I found the carousel to go with the containers at a thrift store for $1.50. I have found bulk spices to be way cheaper! I have also found them in the local grocery store (in the produce section) in little bags, already to go. Here is just one price comparison:

<-----This ginger is $4.09 for .85oz

<------This ginger is 1.5 ounces for $1.41

basil: 1.0 ounce for $1.32


  1. My spices need to be cleaned out - most don't even smell like they should - a sure sign they have been in the cupboard since who knows when!

    Yep - way cheaper to buy bulk or in the bags. Now I just need more Tupperware spice containers and that carousel.

  2. unreal!...can't believe the price difference, thanks.

  3. another idea: grow your own this spring/summer! Some of the herbs grow back every year so you don't have to keep on planting them. Then you dry them in your oven, crush them up and put them in a container, and then you have some very fresh spices:)
