Long Term Food Storage: Bulk Buying Tips For Frugal Budgets!

2789 ratings | 147899 views
Starry made a yearly trip out of the mountains and to the city. The purpose, buying food in bulk! Keeping a well stocked pantry is essential for any homestead that wants to 1) SAVE MONEY 2) Be More self sustainable 3) Have FREEDOM from the store!! A well organized and stocked pantry needs to be filled not just with garden spoils and home canned items, but also staples! Staples include such food items as your grains, oatmeal, wheat, millet, different varieties of rice, beans, sugar, oils, baking powder, corn starch, nuts, peanut butter, spices, pastas, instant potatoes...the list is long! BUT purchases can be made in increments, spreading out the cost thus also allowing you time to properly store and packaged your new bulk items. ALWAYS remember Rome wasn't built in a day. Dont go hog wild and think you need to catch up if you dont have these items in 50 to 100lbs bags already in your pantry. Be aware, make a list, purchase only what you NEED and will eat, be smart...and remind yourself the money up front will PAY you back tons in the end!!! Watch and learn....Starry scratches the surface of some bulk items YOU need to be looking at today!! Dont forget to visit Starry at Mother Earth News!

Those bulk pinto beans come to $1.78/lb and the non gmo pinto beans at the dollar tree are $.50/lb. Even at the amish and or mennonite stores, dollar tree beats them on price over bulk on pintos. And dang it, it is the ONLY food item they have that actually beats bulk prices.

BulkFoods dot com is an awesome website that sells pretty much anything bulk you can think of. Its not the fun of getting out, but it is way cheaper than the mainstream grocery store. After my stroke, I didn't see a human being (except the UPS guy) for 2-plus years and had no transportation. BulkFoods saved my backside.

Magic berry tree would be better. Then u wouldn’t need sugar at all
Natalie Nicolaou (1 year ago)
Gosh I wish I had a store like this! Excellent bulk selection!!

white rice is healthier than brown, because there is something called phytic acid, and in all brown rice and whole grain flour, phytic acid exists, phitic acid steals calcium from our bones and teeth due to the fact that the body cannot deal with it so it uses calcium, magnesium and several other minerals to excrete it from the body, so either buy more white rice, or sprout your brown rice

Do you have any experience with the wolf problem here in Idaho. I am an avid backpacker and I am concerned but have heard the extreme both for and against.
I havent but we have had some wolves trapped in our area and they are huge.HUGE could take down a man no problem....

Laura Mroz (1 year ago)
Good tips for large families, but if your feeding one or two people most would be a waste. Also, stores must show the price per oz, lb, etc under each item. Also putting a lot of money into you're pantry items might not be a good idea. The money could be invested.
Laura Mroz (1 year ago)
After lifting all these heavy bags you can use the money saved to pay your chiropractor. 😁

I'm starting my pantry over. I am trying to learn as much as i can. Im a single mom of two kids. I am disabled so im on a very fixed income. I wish we had a store like this! I go to Costco and stock up from them. That store is 2 hours away :( do you have any tips I can use. I'm learning how to garden but it's hard to know what is the best things to grow. I'm just feeling overwhelmed. Help!

Buy only natural peanut butter (peanuts with just a trace of salt).. All others have the peanut oil replaced with other oils and sugars and undesirables are added.. Always read the labels..
LadyWeasel (1 year ago)
OMG, I LOOOOVE Winco! We have at least 3 in the Dallas, TX area.
Any ideas of GOOD prices in NC? Sames and Costco aren't cutting it anymore. Thanks
greeneyes1963 (1 year ago)
I found this article in my Bing search from Feb. 2014 about WinCo opening stores in TX. It gave me a little chuckle when I read the part about it being "Walmart's worst nightmare,". Walmart has been the Mom and Pop stores worst nightmare for several decades now. http://time.com/4701/walmarts-worst-nightmare/
greeneyes1963 (1 year ago)
I decided to do a Bing search for Winco, the Winston Salem location did not show there. The google search is now saying the Winston Salem location is permanmently closed. : ( Google needs to just take it out of their search system.
greeneyes1963 (1 year ago)
It came up when I googled Winco, so I called the number listed for it and there is a message saying it is no longer in service. I'm not sure if it was open at one time and went out of business or why it even shows up on the google search. Either way it is very dissapointing. Maybe there is a store around the Charlotte or Raleigh areas that sale in bulk.
I could not find the one in Winston Salem. I searched everywhere. It looks like they have most in Oklahoma and west

Why do you foodstorage?
Lolitabonita (1 year ago)
Yes, the most important is that you prepare your soul to be ready in case you are called before God and Jesus...nothing will matter if you are going to hell. I want to prep, I want to buy land but the system is pushing us down and suppress any efforts to get money and buy the land. Those with land will do better than those who do not have it..
Lolitabonita (1 year ago)
where is the store located? I have never seen big bags of grains for sell that cheap

Great video..... Where do you find bulk items.? Thank you...
SilenceFriction 1 (1 year ago)
Winco is a great source for bulk foods. If not in your area, search terms like grocery outlet, canned food warehouse, etc. https://www.wincofoods.com/stores#/?coordinates=42.76800415887062,-138.13325300750736&zoom=3 Bob's Red Mill http://www.bobsredmill.com/ is a good source for grains, seeds, and mixes, although I find the same products locally for less. A few of our favorite products are 10 grain cereal http://wincoorders.mywebgrocer.com/Cart/AddItem/29708 5 grain rolled cereal http://wincoorders.mywebgrocer.com/Cart/AddItem/30032 and 13 bean soup mix http://wincoorders.mywebgrocer.com/Cart/AddItem/29803, These are also available from Bob's.

I really enjoyed this video and found it very insightful thank you for sharing
cybosma (2 years ago)
I was wondering something while watching this video. You are all about growing organic food, but I don't see you buying organic food. Is there a reason for that? I buy my rice organic, because I know they use al lot of toxics growing rice. I like fairtrade also because I know farmers get more money for growing their rice. They are usually so poor.

Thank you for taking us on this trip with you. Love this store and wish we had one. Live in a small town and can not get bulk. Ask our Kroger store if they could get bulk for me they said NO 😢. Do you know of a place that has bulk I can order cheap ?.
xanadu1jw (1 year ago)
Amazon and Walmart
Susie Que (2 years ago)
Excellent information. I caught the name of the location on one of the price signs. Apparently, they aren't in my state. Do you know of other stores that sell bulk items?
Taylor (1 year ago)
Yes, I know of a SECRET STORE two seconds away from your house that giveaway FREE food in bulk. I just went and I got 999 trillion pounds of potatoes, 50 tons of a rice and a free sex slave. I know. I know. But I couldn't resist. Let me know if you want to know where it is And the cashiers will give you 999 billion dollars for free. Omg!
xanadu1jw (1 year ago)
Amazon and Walmart you can order online

oats are are horse feed. hard on the digestive system. peanut butter is hydrogenated oil
xanadu1jw (1 year ago)
Where are you from that oatmeal is not people food? You can buy non-hydrogenated peanut butter, even organic but all peanuts are high in toxins.
Jean Skilling (2 years ago)
Theres a place in Spokane WA called spocane pea and bean. we bought 25 pound bags of lentles, split peas, pearl barley at whole sale prices. I am sure they are in the phone book.
