3) Herbs and Spices
Typically, you’ll get the same flavor from generic bottles of herbs and spices as you will from the name brand varieties. To get the best flavor, you want the freshest herbs possible, and getting a name brand spice will not necessarily guarantee freshness. Instead of buying bottles of name brand spices, try buying bulk spices from your local health food store. Grab a few bags and pour in a few spoonfuls of your favorite dried herbs and fragrant spices. This way, you’ll be buying just the amount you need. You can also experiment with new spices and herbs without having to buy a whole bottle. When you buy in bulk, you’ll be able to save money, and you’ll get to buy the freshest ingredients possible to use when you’re cooking.
