I will occasionally find some chaff in the packet, along with the seeds, or a broken large seed like a bean. But I figure for the price, I can overlook a tiny bit of waste. When I'm just not sure if there will be enough seeds in a packet of what I want, I buy 2 packets. It's only an extra 25 cents -- a small price to pay for insurance that I'll have all the seeds I want to plant this year.
I'll also be buying bush green beans and snow peas at a place like Home Depot. So my total seed expense should come to about $7 to $8. In comparison, in years that I've bought all my seeds at Home Depot, I've spent about $20 to $25 on seeds for the vegetable garden.
