Tuesday Tip

Hi friends!  Whew, made it through Monday!  It was a busy day, but a great day!
I am coming to you with a little something I have been thinking about doing for a while, a Tuesday tip.
I am asked frequently about things I do that help me live a healthy lifestyle and a lot about living healthy on a budget.   I can’t promise I will be posting my tips every Tuesday, but I am sure going to do my best!
If you have any questions about healthy living that you would like me to cover, PLEASE let me know! Even though I don’t have any specific certifications yet, I do love to share with others {YOU} simple things that can help them live a healthy life!


Several years ago I needed to get several spices at one time, but I really didn’t need a ton of each of them.  As I walked around the store I came upon a section that had spices in bulk.  I was able to measure and get exactly what I needed for a fraction of the cost of the spices sold in containers.
I was amazed, and I have been using this method ever since.  I still can not get over how much cheaper buying spices this way is!  All that rosemary was only $0.39!  That would have been $3+ in the normal spice aisle!

I use these spices to refill the jars on my spice rack.

I even got more blank spice jars to fill with spices that didn’t come with my rack.

I highly recommend this method!  It will save you money and you will always have fresh spices on hand!  Can’t get much better than that 🙂

May you be filled with joy and health!

    Ooh… that’s a great idea about bulk spices, especially for spices that don’t get used that often. I find that I buy the little jars and then some of the spices end up losing their flavor before I get around to using all of it.

    GIRL YES! I remember when I discovered the BULK SPICE / HERB section at the grocery store! We basically are buying THE GLASS JAR when we buy herbs and spices on the rack – but the bulk section = PERFECTION and spices are sooooo dang cheap (except for that damn SAFFRON of course). So glad you figured this out! 😉

      Haha those certain spices are just expensive no matter what! I was thrilled to discover this a few years back! And the other day I found arrowroot in the bulk nut/flour section!!! Game changer for my homemade deo recipe! Dang bottles had me paying $7 for a few ounces! No more! Lol

    Great tip and hells yes for bulk spices!!! ❤ It helps to save so much money! I'm planning on getting (or maybe making if I'm feeling ambitious) a spice rack at some point–mine are currently still in the little baggies I got em' in! 😛

    I can’t say I’ve ever seen this method available in the grocery stores close to me, but I’m all about saving money, so I’d be willing to try it if I came across it! I can’t count the number of spices that have expired because I’ve only needed them once or twice.
