Our provident living specialist in our ward is absolutely amazing. Between her and this wonderful website, I finally feel like we are on our way to getting our food storage going. And that is a very good feeling.
But she does a lot more than just food storage. She also knows a lot about how to go about buying bulk foods in the area. It's a fantastic money saver if I can just find the space to do it all. I suppose it will come in time. Meanwhile, I took advantage of one thing today and am hooked. Bountiful Baskets. I'm not sure how the whole thing works behind the scenes but it more or less is a co-op where you pay a set price that goes in to buying bulk fruits and vegetables. Then on a specific day and time, you pick up your portion. You don't know what you're going to get but it is definitely worth it -- $16.50 every 2 weeks for 6 different fruits and 6 different vegetables. And that's not total -- that's type.
If you live in an area where they do this -- I'm recommending it!
