Such a steal!
This random post is for my Oregon blog readers...at least I think this only applies to you. If you have never purchased spices in the bulk food section at Winco...you are really missing out! I decided I was craving the taste and smell of pumpkin bread, and that instead of paying $1.85 for one slice at my beloved Starbucks, I should figure out how to make it myself. It calls for several spices that I was low on or didn't have, so I went to Safeway, where I was looking at paying $3.98 and $4.69 for 2-4 ounces of these spices. So I waited and went to Winco, where I paid $ .10 for 8 cinnamon sticks, $ .18 for about 2 ounces of cinnamon, $ .17 for ground ginger, $ .38 for ground cloves and $ .48 for several ounces of nutmeg. HELLO?!?!? What a deal! I had to share this exciting news. They also sell little empty plastic spice jars I filled and labeled at home. (Would you call them jars? Bottles? Containers?) Anyway. Had to share. Perhaps I will let you know how the bread turns out.
