How much did you spend?

Was it worth it?  

  1. threenorns (Minden,  ON) paid $3 and said:

    it was a 1lb plastic container but i didn’t use it all before it died on me. looking back, i realized i never have managed to get through a container. usually, it’s about half before it’s pooched at a cost ranging from 3 to 5 a pound. therefore, the actual unit cost is doubled per pound since i’m throwing away half.

    now, i make my own single-acting baking powder. it’s 1 tsp cream of tartar ($10/lb) plus 2tsp baking soda ($1/lb) for a unit cost of $4 – but it’s 100% used, since i only make it up as i need it. bonus: i don’t lose shelf space in the fridge for a separate baking powder container.

    Was it worth it? No
