After much research I learned that it would be easier for us if we started out small. We begin to look for the cheapest way to prepare meals and kept a list of our cheapest meals.
By eating these same sorts of meals for about a month, we began to accumulate a surplus of cash. This was used to make our first bulk purchase.
We’ve now found creative ways to keep our bulk items replenished. We stock up at income tax time. In addition a portion of the money that I make from blogging goes towards a bulk buying surplus. However, from time to time we build a surplus by eating just our cheapest meals.
Below is one of our most cost affective bulk buys.
Each 3 pack cost any where from .79 cents to $1.39
I began looking for a cheaper alternative, but all I found was this 4 ounce jar for $3.29
Finally, I read this article “Save Money On Buying Yeast“. Now I buy yeast in bulk. I purchase (2) 1 pound bags from Sam’s club for a little over four dollars.
I would love to hear your response.
