It's all relative on the cost issue. The FSG lasts me a fairly long time - I've used it 3-4 times a week for about a month now and haven't made a dent in the bottle. And to be able to have it in my hands by simply walking to my mailbox - not dragging my 2 kids out to 15 different stores to find ingredients in 100+ heat, finding spare time to make it when one or the other kid isn't up my butt, keeping them OUT of the ingredients and away from the stove, and dealing with my 4 yr old's incessant questions about it - yeah, I'd probably pay double what she's asking!!!!!
