Buying certain foods in bulk is a great way to save money, packaging, and shopping time, while opening up new opportunities to support good farmers. We all have to buy our kitchen staples like flour, sugar, salt, dried pasta, and nuts from the outside world, so why not buy in bulk and save money, while supporting your local vendors!
Buying these items in bulk can help eliminate several food shopping trips, reduce packaging waste, and ensure that more your food dollars never go to waste! Bulk bins at many grocery stores are a good start, but eventually you may want to explore direct-ordering large quantities of single items rather than choosing a few pounds from a store bin. Air tight containers and freezer methods keep your bulk products fresh until you’re ready to use them.
