I believe in buying in bulk. My family grocery shops once a month. I know that might not work for your family but I love not needing to go to the grocery store every week. I had been wanting to visit our Costco for awhile and on Saturday my hubby and I took the kids to "town".
I was shocked at their prices. Here's a list of my best buys-
3 12oz natural no nitrate bacon $9.95--- saving of $9 ( I was paying $5.95 for 1 12 oz package!!!)
3 1lb packages of nitrate/ all natural beef hot dogs $9.95--savings of $4
Kerry gold grass fed butter 3 8oz packages $6.87--savings of $2
15lb organic brown rice $13
huge bottle of organic olive oil $9.00
I would estimate that I saved at least $75.00 by shopping at Costco than heading to Trader Joe's and Whole foods. I did not purchase all organic items...I saved a lot by purchasing some of my hubby's junk food here.
I am also picking up an order of 50lb of grass fed local ground beef later this week. I will not need to go to a store for the rest of the month unless we run low on fruit/fresh veggies.
How do you grocery shop? Once a month? Or more?
Do you purchase items in bulk?
