Buying food in bulk is good not only your wallet, but also for environment. Go green and save some green by buying food in bulk.
- Step 1: Use the food. That sounds obvious, but it can be easy to forget about certain items you have purchased and never got around to eating. Find recipes for all the things you purchase. The point of buying in bulk is to save, not to waste.
- FACT: The first Sam's Club opened in 1983 in Midwest City, Oklahoma.
- Step 2: Figure out where to store the items you buy. Some items, like rice and dried beans, are pantry items, while others, like nuts and dried fruit, are better suited for the freezer or refrigerator.
- TIP: Glass containers with airtight lids are the best options for keeping out bugs and preserving food.
- Step 3: Buy your own containers to keep food organized and looking neat in your pantry or refrigerator. The last thing you want is for something to get crumpled up in a bag and forgotten about.
- Step 4: Join a discount club, like Costco or Sam's Club, to receive special deals on bulk food items. These places sell more than just food.
