Baking each week keeps you organized, saves you money, and keeps you in control of the ingredients in your family’s meals. And the best part is when my children run over to the oven as I’m pulling out my homemade bread; begging for me to cut them a hot slice with butter and honey. Believe me. You’ll be their hero!
* Common items that are consistently money savers when buying in bulk include paper products (toilet paper, paper towels, tissues), cleaning products, generic medicines, frozen vegetables, and frozen hamburger patties. With other items on your grocery list, you’ll want to comparison shop to ensure you’re saving the most.
* Some membership clubs accept manufacturer’s coupons. They may accept in-store coupons, coupons sent as a membership benefit, or traditional manufacturer’s coupons. Be sure to use coupons on bulk items that you’re already planning to buy and you’ll save even more!
* Avoid impulse buying. If it isn’t on your list, don’t put it in your basket. You’re likely to be bombarded with food samples – go ahead and try them, but don’t allow yourself to be enticed to buy them if they aren’t pre-planned.
Now you know the advantages of buying in bulk. You will enjoy the benefits of saving money, helping the environment, and preparing healthier meals. So, what’s holding you back from giving buying in bulk a try?
