It’s Christmas cookie time again and that means the cookie exchange! However, if you are buying jar after jar of colored sanding sugars to sprinkle on your creations it can get very costly rather quickly.
Working in this business has made me acutely aware of what things REALLY cost. Walking through stores and seeing someone pay $4.50 for a tiny 3 ounce bottle of colored sanding sugar for example… I know that they could make huge bags of it for $4.50.
I have a drawer full of them, I’m not immune to be sucked in by all the pretty colors… but no more!
It’s not that I’m cheap; I prefer to think of it as frugal, but what gets under my skin is paying an exorbitant amount of money for what I’m getting.
It’s all about getting a decent value for your money.
So, with that said: We are going to make our own sanding sugars this year for a fraction of what we would pay at the grocery store.
