How We Save Money On Organic Food | Buying In Bulk

Eating organic food is a big priority in our home, but the grocery bill can add up WAY too quickly if we only purchase organic foods from grocery stores.

Can I get an AMEN mamas?

With all these hungry mouths to feed, I have had to find some other methods of obtaining organic food, beyond just the grocery stores.

Buying in bulk is one of the ways that I cut way back on organic food prices.

 

The three main ways we buy in bulk are:

  1. Purchasing a half of a cow each year via a beef share.
  2. Purchasing fresh seasonal fruit directly from the farm or orchard, and sometimes picking it ourselves (in the case of the strawberries and blueberries).
  3. Ordering bulk grains and other dry foods from Amazon prime using Subscribe and Save.*

The grains I most commonly order are:

I also order raw sugar, raw cacao, and organic white flour in bulk on amazon as well.

*I am an amazon affiliate, and I do earn a small commission when you purchase via these links. No extra cost to you!

I store the grains in large food grade buckets, and I preserve whatever fruit we don’t eat fresh.

I use this jam recipe and this pectin to make strawberry, peach, and blueberry jam because it allows me to use much less sugar than other pectins.

(Recipe is from the pectin instructions.)
