Through our Buying in Bulk series we won't just be talking about how to buy in bulk but we will also be interviewing other bloggers to find out more about real life experiences with buying in bulk and how it has impacted their families.

Today enjoy this interview with Katie about her experience with Buying in Bulk!

1. How long have you been buying in bulk?

I have been buying in bulk three years.

2. What was your main reason behind starting to buy in bulk?

I grind my own wheat to make bread, I wanted to buy wheat berries for a cheaper price than at the health food stores.

3. What was your biggest challenge just starting out and how did you overcome it?

It was natural for me. I've never none anything different, I grew up with my parents buying most things in bulk.

The only challenge was making sure I had money set aside so start making those purchases. I make almost all my food from scratch so it has been cheaper in the long run for me to buy things in bulk than to buy the premade items from the store.

4. What are your favorite stores/sources for buying in bulk?

Azure Standard for basic food and toiletries (castile soap and shampoo).

Bulk Herb Store and Mountain Rose Herbs for dried herbs, glass dropper bottles, tins and bee's wax.

Costco for toilet paper, some food and some cleaning supplies (AKA baking soda and white vinegar).

5. In what way has buying in bulk most benefited your family?

I have higher quality ingredients that have allowed me to prepare meals, cleaning supplies, toiletries and herbal remedies that nourish and heal the body for a fraction of what it would cost to purchase them.

6. What is your favorite item to buy in bulk?

Practically everything! I can't just pick one so I would have to say, wheat berries, coconut oil and medicinal herbs make the top of the list.

7. Anything else you want to add about your bulk buying experience?

Find good quality companies to buy from.
