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