There are a couple of recipes that I rely on, especially the taco seasoning. Many of my herbs and spices are purchased in bulk . These are only some of them. The top row is three containers deep and the bottom row is two deep. Most are in the basement for a cooler and more even temperature. (Of course, I would be fibbing if I said it also wasn’t due to space constraints.)
I also like knowing there aren’t any “fillers” or “additives” that are useless. It’s also easy to multiply the amounts in order to have a “stash” of my most used mixes. That’s in addition to saving lots and lots of money!
