THIS WEEK'S SAVING GRACE
Bulk Up Your Wallet With Bulk Purchases
No, I'm not talking about stocking up on 100 rolls of toilet paper or 100 pounds of ground beef just because
prices are cheap. Rather, I'm suggesting you look at the bulk food section of your supermarket. And if the market
you shop at doesn't have one, maybe you should start looking around for one that does.
Bulk foods can be real money savers, especially when you need only a small amount of something.
Take spices for example. It's not unusual to pay $3.00 and more for a small jar of cardamom that you may
only use once or twice a year. The spice itself may only cost a very small amount, but the fancy jars and
pretty labels make up the bulk of the price. Instead, cardamom in bulk costs only a fraction of what you
pay for it in a jar -- and you only have to buy as much as you need.
The same economics apply to cereals, pastas, flours, sugars, lentils, nuts, candies, and a host of other
priducts in bulk. Over the course of a year, the savings by shopping the bulk food section could amount to hundreds
Wondering how you'll store all these new-found purchases? Get creative. Save the jars from the spices for which
you overpaid. Old mayonaisse jars are great storage containers. All those plastic containers from sour cream and
cottage cheese are perfect for holding nuts. For cereals, flours and pastas, you'll find 2.5 quart plastic paint
containers with lids at Home Depot for less than $2.00, or hop over to your nearest dollar store for some really
cheap storeage containers.
