4 Reasons to Buy Groceries in Bulk

 Pantry

Is bigger always better? In the case of healthy pantry staples, the answer might just be a resounding 'yes'!

 

From oats to raw nuts to chia seeds, we give you four reasons to ditch those tiny supermarket packets in favour of something a lot more substantial.

 

1. Stretch your grocery budget

There's a good reason why everyone loves a warehouse grocery store -- it's a sure way to make your money go further! Why buy a small handful of cashews for $3.99 when you can get four times the amount for $10? When it comes to saving money, buying larger quantities of groceries is a no-brainer.

 

2. Reduce your environmental footprint

Buying one large bag instead of many smaller ones means less packaging and less waste that ends up in landfills. When you buy groceries in bulk, you can feel good in more ways than one, knowing that you've reduced your environmental footprint.

 

3. Save precious time

Save yourself multiple trips to the supermarket -- not to mention money spent on bus fare, petrol and parking -- by stocking up on staples. Since so many pantry staples are non-perishable and keep well, buying more at one go leaves you more time to spend on fun weekend activities, rather than at that long line for the cashier. For bonus points: buy online to avoid the supermarket completely! 

 

4. Eat better

Bulk buying leads to healthier food choices. When you have a big jar of quinoa in your kitchen, chances are you'll get your creative cooking juices flowing and turn it into whole host of delicious, healthy meals for yourself and your family. Way better than finding an empty pantry and having to fill up on instant noodles and their tiny packets of MSG.
