I agree with you. I don’t use most of this stuff and I usually find
the store brand cheaper and tasteful enough to pass. There are so
many copycat recipes that you can use to make for pennies compared to
the convenience foods. I don’t find it useful enough to waste my
time. What I use it for is for entertainment and restuarants. We took
my husband to Lonestar Steak House for his birthday, w/ coupon and
discounts (kids eat free on Sat 11-4, free dessert for birthday) I
managed to get $24 taken off our bill, making it very affordable for
a lovely steak dinner. Good luck.
