We are scraping the bottom of our warehouse-club-sized container of chives, and our warehouse club no longer carries them. The grocery store charges about four times as much for chives, so today I bought a packet of chive seeds for $3.35 less than the small container of chives in the grocery store spice aisle. If I can grow them (despite my black thumb), I should be able to get more chives for the money, too.
Adding in the $3.35 savings on chives and the continuing income/savings from writing and card making, my account total is once again over my goal of $40 for the quarter -- $42.84
