I'm making Tarragon Chicken this week. Guess what spice I don't have? That's right - tarragon!
Instead of going out and buying a container of a spice I haven't used in years and my not use again, I'm buying just what I need. Many natural stores, such as Whole Foods, Sprouts and Natural Grocerers, have bulk bins of spices.
I measured out the amount of tarragon I needed and paid $0.44. The cheapest bottle of spices was $3.99. So I saved around $3.50 by simply buying what I needed!
