Last week's storage item was spices and herbs. Since I'm trying to follow my own advice and stock up on the items recommended, I was on the hunt for cheap spices to put into storage.
Walmart carries a spice brand called 5th Season that they sell for 50 cents! They had different varieties of spices, including garlic and onion salt and powder, Italian seasoning, chili powder, cinnamon, lemon pepper, dried parsley, seasoning salt and others. Because they want you to pay $4 for the same sized spice bottle, the 5th Seasoning brand was way on the bottom shelf. Because I am cheap, cheap, cheap, I found those well-hidden bottles and am now passing on my shopping secrets to you. If there's one thing my college marketing class taught me it was that the stuff they want you to buy is at eye level.
Of course if you are 6 inches tall, you would have found the 50 cent spices right away.
