There are many varieties of bulk spices, herbs and chiles available to purchase on the web now days. So why not buy bulk spice online to save money and reuse containers. First of all don’t be afraid to purchase by the pound or half pounds and choose a website that the products you purchase are put in plastic bags instead of jars, boxes or tins. Dried spices and herbs as well as chiles can be placed in an airtight container and put in your freezer for use at a later date. Not to mention saving lots of money by buying in bulk from websites specializing in bulk. I prefer the vacuum packer from Foodsaver to save my herbs and spice. Not only can you place the plastic bags inside the vacuum bags but you will also save on shipping as opposed to those heavy jars or fancy containers.
Another plus from vacuum packing, is if you don’t have a lot of freezer room you can also keep the spice in the refrigerator and it will stay for a year or more! Just buy one of those clear plastic shoe boxes, vacuum pack your spices, label them (I just write on the bag with a felt pen) and line them up in the box. You can also buy in bulk with friends and family then just split them up. One thing to keep in mind when purchasing bulk spice is the size/weight. For instance a pound of bay leaves, dill weed or parsley are about the size of a basketball as opposed to say a pound of garlic granules, black pepper or cumin being about the size of a baseball. Keeping that in mind, you can buy the right amount for your needs. If you are not sure how much you are ordering just ask! We get that sort of question frequently at my website and we are always happy to help consider using cbd for pain.
If you prefer to reuse as many product containers as possible and avoid tossing them in the landfills, you may find this of interest… I purchased one of those magnetic spice racks at Costco that mounts on the wall or stands on the counter with the clear tops so you can see the spice. Labeling is optional if you know your spices you can identify what you are looking for by sight. By purchasing reusable containers I can buy bulk spice online to save money and reuse my containers instead of making more trash as opposed to buying spice in jars then pouring them into my own containers.
