Penzeys Chives
I will definitely have to look into that. I seriously couldn't deal with shelling out $8 for a little jar of chives that I'd use up in a month. Thank you!

rr, if you sign up for their emails, you get a notice whenever they have free shipping or some other special. And they give away a spice or two practically every month. They do, however, seem to send out a lot of emails. I'll put up with that because FREE is good!

They always offer free shipping on an order of at least $29.95, but sometimes they lower it to $20, which is promoted in the emails. A couple weeks ago, I ordered more mustard seeds (brown and yellow) for making homemade mustard, along with sate seasoning to bring the total to just over $20.

Their special offer was two small jars of Pie Spice for a minimum $5 purchase, plus they included a sample of Pasta Sprinkle, and I got free shipping. Six items for a total of just under $23 (including tax)

I like this place because all orders ship free, and they include a freebie with every order.

If you have any asian markets near you, they usually have bags of cumin seed in pretty good size quantities at a pretty decent price (at least the ones around here)...

I've an abundance of garlic, dried, chopped/olive oil frozen, fresh.......chives are coming up in the pots out back just now.
I chop handfuls of chives and throw them in the freezer to use over winter. (green goddess dressing last week)

My favorite herb is thyme, in soups and stews (as we come out of winter).

Here too Med. Our Mexican market has a whole rack of spices in cellophane packages, each just over a dollar. I most often buy Mexican Oregano, ground cumin, and otherwise very expensive sesame seeds there.
