Money Saving Tip Wednesday

E-Mealz, spice couponsWe’ve decided to change things up a bit around here on our Wednesday posts. Each Wednesday, we’ll post a money saving tip as well as any hot coupons that may come available.

This week, let’s examine how you can save money on spices. Spices are sometimes the key to a great recipe…whether it’s just ok or a HUGE success!  (Check out this post we did on spices a few months ago.)

Best ways to save on spices:

  • Keep your eyes peeled for store sales or specials on spices and stock up on common spices your family goes through quickly.
  • Look for coupons on spices in your Sunday paper or search online in a coupon database to see if there are any printable coupons available.
  • Google ways to improvise on spices or combine other ingredients to get a similar taste.
  • If it comes to the day you’re making a recipe, and you have to go buy a spice try out the store brand. I personally use store brand spices whenever possible.

How do you all save on spices?  Any tips or tricks that you can share with our community?

    I hardly ever buy premixed seasonings i.e. Italian Seasoning, Greek Seasoning, Hamburger Seasoning, Fajita Seasoning. When I have to use something like that for a recipe I usually Google the seasoning and I can usually find a recipe for making it. 9 times out of 10 I have everything I need already. I just put the various spices in a jar, shake it up, and there it is for later use.

    Whole Foods (at least the new one near us) will let you buy spices from their bulk spices in any amount. So if you only need a teaspoon of something that you don’t normally use, you can just buy a teaspoon sized amount of the spice, instead of buying a whole jar.
