When Frugality Bites...

Cleaning out the spice cabinet has led to a Freecycle posting that makes me look like such a baffoon. Don'tcha just hate that?! Thankfully, i've got lots of emails from fellow Freecyclers sympathizing with me as they have the same type of problem--the message read as follows:

From: Whit
Date: Wednesday, August 12, 2009 10:14 am
To: King County Freecycle
Subject: OFFERED: 1 lb. tub of Ground Allspice

You know when you're shopping for a certain spice and you find that small little 2 oz container is just as expensive as the 1 lb jar, so you think to yourself, "Man, i'd be stupid to buy that little jar when i could get all this!"

Cause really, the smart person would have bought the 2 oz jar if they only needed 1 tsp of ground allspice.

Well, just call me Stupid, but don't call me late for dinner, or any baked good you'll be making with it. :o)

In all seriousness, i do infact have a 1 pound plastic tub of Sauer's ground allspice (minus the teaspoon of it that i used for chili sauce.)

Now that i have a year's worth of chili sauce, i don't want the allspice hanging around the house for the year, expiring.

If you can put it to good use, especially with the upcoming holidays, please email me!


Double thankfully, within just a few minutes of confessing my spice purchasing iniquities, a gal emailed me that she would be here today to pick it up. Of course, a couple hours after, she was having freecycler's remorse i think, as i got an email back stating that if i never needed any of it back, just to email and let her know. :o)

Do you think if in 2015, if i was short on some allspice and i emailed her, that she'd still have some? :o)
