I am a fairly frugal (some would say cheap :) person and nearly always buy the least expensive of whatever item I need that I can find. That said, I am getting more and more into cooking and baking, and am wondering, what is worth spending money on in the grocery world and what is basically the same whether you buy the $2.50 version or the $8.00 version?
Example: I've been told that expensive, organic eggs are much much better than the cheapest version. On the other side, as far as I can discern, all milk tastes essentially the same.
Any ingredients/items are fair game.
