When Liz emailed this I knew it would be perfect for fellow frugalites. It’s a tip I use myself to buy spices cheaply. Thanks, Liz!
I needed to buy some curry powder, but didn’t want to spend almost $8 for it, not knowing if I liked it or not. It seems that each supermarket has an International Spice section, sometimes not even with the regular spices. I usually find the Mexican spices in a different part of the store. They come in cellophane bags and seem to vary between $1 or $2 dollars a bag. They are just as good as the regular spices… sometimes better. Next time your in the grocery store, ask your check out clerk where you can find these bagged spices and take a gander.
