Most of the bulk food stores (locally it is Bulk Barn) will have a spice isle. You can buy small quantities (you scoop the amount you want into a little plastic bag usually). This is a cheap way to get spices and herbs for a dish you want to try that uses a spice or dried herb you don't have and aren't sure you will use again.

Good for experimenters, good for learning spices, good for developing some TNT dishes into your kitchen.
I haven't seen them in stores yet (I live in a small MW town), but it is something I wish I could have access to when I was young. For example, the first time I made curry, I wound up with so many jars of spices that I wound up giving/throwing them away when I PCSd. A pinch of this and a tsp of that would have helped me a lot in those days. And, I might add, probably saved me a dollar or two. Nowadays that would be a lot more.
