Buying Foods in Bulk January 28, 2013

Usually I grow most of the food that I put up. But sometimes a harvest doesn’t turn out as well as you had hoped, or you didn’t have time to garden. But whatever the reason, a remedy for this situation can be purchasing foods in bulk.

So why should a person buy bulk foods?

Bulk foods cost less. This is great for those of us who are on a strict budget. But even if your budget isn’t tight, it is nice to be able to save money. Organic bulk foods can cost up to 89% less than their non-bulk counterparts.

Bulk foods help the environment. When you purchase a bulk food there is less packaging involved. Packaging that usually gets thrown away.

Have food on hand during emergencies. If  you buy food in bulk then if there is an emergency that leaves you stuck at home, you will not starve as your pantry will be stocked with food for you to eat until the emergency is cleared up.
