Buying In Bulk

We have a full sized freezer and a vacuum sealer ("Food Saver"), because we shop regularly at warehouse stores, or stock up at regular stores when things go on sale.

This evening my husband did a big shop at Costco. Some of the items that were cheaper there include:

-butter (which freezes extremely well)
-ground beef

It's like anything else - it pays to shop around and know prices, because not everything is cheaper. I keep receipts from various stores and compare prices on a per unit level. Admittedly the convenience of pre-packed smaller portions is nice, but generally speaking, if you buy food in bulk and divide it into smaller portions before freezing it, you usually save money.
