Real World Experience in Saving Money at the Grocery Store - Bulk Spices

I am all about saving money on my grocery bill.  As the only women in a house with three men between the ages of 15 and 47, you can imagine how horrifying a grocery bill can be.  

I have been shopping at my local natural foods store for my bulk organic needs for a few years now, but never thought about hitting their bulk spice counter until today.  As we all know, spices at the grocery store can get pretty expensive so I thought I would see if I could save some money as I was completely out of cumin.  At my local grocery store, a 1.5 ounce bottle of McCormick ground cumin can cost $4.89.  I brought my empty bottle (recycling) and they filled it up.  I braced myself for the final cost, as I am used to spices being expensive, and was shocked at the price.

$1.25!!

That's a savings of $3.64!

Looks like from now I will be getting my spices in bulk!!
