Save money by buying extra when non-perishable foods are on sale. Foods that last include rice, beans, cooking oil and frozen vegetables. Remember to check unit prices. Bigger packages are often cheaper per unit. And don’t forget your coupons.
If you don’t have room in your pantry (or in your budget!) for a bulk item, consider “going in” with a family member or friend and splitting the cost and product. Make sure to store all foods in air tight containers such as gallon zip bags or plastic containers.
