I did my weekly grocery shopping.
Can you believe I was almost out of
So what did I see but
4 oz of Vanilla extract for 11.00.
(11 is really what 10.99 means).
Prices around here are quite high.
Making my own vanilla just got even more
of a savings than what I was
Two 750 cheap bottles of vodka for vanilla beans
have been bought.
My Amazon order of vanilla beans is ordered &
still waiting to be shipped.
I told people at the check out that I was
getting the cheapest vodka they had in the store,
i.e. the ones on the bottom shelf and the cheapest of those,
to make vanilla;
My calculations on the savings via Google Chrome
(did you know you can just type math in and it will give you the result?)
shows me that for the vodka and vanilla beans
I will save, at the price at my local store, way over half price.
I hope to gift some of this,
which adds to the cost
(buying bottles, labels) but even if vanilla in the store
cost only 5.00 / 4 oz I should do better than
breaking even in terms of gifts.
At the prices around here,
I am still saving over 50% even gifting them!
