I can't wait to do my shopping today with these things in mind. Does anyone else get excited when it's shopping day and your surrounded by wonderful produce, and get to breathe in all the fragrant spices when you walk in the door of a co-op? Hmmm.. maybe I'm just weird, but hey we already knew that, like it or lump it! That's what my dad would say.
On that note I cannot agree with buying in bulk more, it saves a lot of money and reduces waste greatly, if I can buy something in bulk I will, otherwise I will go without for a day or two until I can get to the co-op to get it, unless it's an emergency. As you all know I hate plastic so this is an awesome way to reduce it, and you get to take only what you need, this is good especially for spices. Just make sure to bring your own containers with you! Oh and please wash your hands first before digging into those bins ;)
