Frugal Tip: How to Save Money on Sesame Seeds

Most people look for and buy sesame seeds on the spice aisle, where a 2.4 ounce jar sells for over $5.00. However, you can find organic sesame seeds on the bulk food aisle for under $4.00 a pound. If you do the math, you will find that buying sesame seeds from the bulk food aisle is a savings of approximately $1.75 an ounce.

When you buy from the bulk section, you don’t have to buy a pound, you can still only buy a couple ounces if you wish. A 2.5 ounce purchase from the bulk aisle will only cost you 63 cents instead of $5.00 for a 2.4 ounce jar on the spice aisle!
