Food: Bulk
 
 

canned food

 

Save money on food buying it in bulk.  It is usually thrift friendly to buy items in larger quantities, and then divide it up.  If you have a freezer, make good use of it. Frozen items are easily divided.  Canned goods can be put on pantry shelves or under beds.  Bread and other grain products will come out of the freezer as fresh as they went in.

Another option is to shop with a friend, and divide things up when you get home.
