One of my favorite things to buy in bulk is produce! But buying pounds upon pounds of strawberries in mid-December wouldn't really save us any money now would it?

Buy produce in bulk and buy it in season! When you buy produce in season you will get the freshest products picked at their peak. Most produce is peak in the summer months so make sure to plan your grocery budget accordingly.

Here is a chart I've put together with the best months of the year to buy produce, when it's in season! During these months you can plan on seeing good deals on those produce items that are in season so you can stock up! Can, freeze, dehydrate, or put in cold storage depending on the time of the year.

Some people have difficulties starting buying in bulk, because they do not have enough money available, even as they are not in the low income group, Try it this way: every time you buy at reduced or on sale prices put the money you saved in a real savingsbox! After a few weeks you will have enough to buy one item in bulk, put the money you saved in a savingsbox etc. It might take a year, but then you will be able to buy in bulk whenever there is a superduper pricereduction. It really works.

Buying in Bulk isn’t that expensive in most places. Buying in Bulk doesn’t mean buying boxes or can’s, it can also mean that your store can have a section where you buy stuff per pound.
Sometimes its not cheaper to go this route, but most times it is. But setting aside the “savings” is another great way to show what you’ve saved & therefore you can take that savings & put it towards a bill or buying more cases when the case lot sales go on.
