  1. My mind immediately jumped to Zero Waste Home. Growing up, we had a great grocery store that sold primarily in bulk. But with regulations (and kind of inconsiderate consumers), they’ve pretty much phased it out. I’m really hoping they make a resurgence in popularity in my area. It’s such an important concept. Now, I pretty much rely on my windowsill garden to fill my spice jars 🙂

    1. You grow your own spices? That is AWESOME. I’ve tried the past couple of years to get a garden going, and it’s just not happening. I am just learning about the power of buying in bulk, both in value and quality, and I think I’m pretty much sold! I appreciate the comment and will be checking out your cool site!
