Money-Saving Tip: Grow Your Own Herbs

5 / 7
by: Blythe Copeland

Don't have a green thumb? Trust us, you can still grow herbs -- even indoors, in a windowsill or hydroponic garden if you don't have any outdoor space. Packaged fresh herbs often cost $2 or more per packet, while fresh bunches may be cheaper but end up going bad before you can use them all. For the price of a little bit of dirt and a packet of seeds, you can have a handful of fresh basil, dill, rosemary, or cilantro whenever you need it. If your favorites grow faster than you can use them, try chopping them and freezing in cubes of olive oil, or drying them to preserve them even longer.
