Holler Dollar: Dollar Tree Herbs
The other day I was making a new soup and reached in my cupboard for some dried basil and there was none there. What the heck?!
The next time I was at Target I remembered I needed some, but then after seeing the price was over $2 I thought I’d check the Doller Tree next door.
Low and behold they had some, and quite a lot of other herbs also. This is exactly the price I want to pay for herbs, but the packaging was not cute.
Yes sometimes I pay more for the nice packaging!
Herbs in general are always a bit tricky. When we first got married I tried to only buy the Archer Farms herbs so they’d all match, but it didn’t take long to realized they didn’t have every herb I needed.
Last year I decided to buy all new jars at Bed Bath and Beyond, they were 99 cents each, and I could buy them individually if and when my spice collection grew. Since then I’ve also noticed them at World Market for the same price.
It’s a little bit of happiness opening my spice cupboard to see this:
Simple pleasures people, simple pleasures!
