Whip Your Grocery Budget Into Shape: Buy in Bulk

Welcome to the second major series of posts on Frugal Made Fun! Each week, I'll post 1-2 tips on how to develop your own plan to save money on groceries. I'm going to start with some of the most basic, easiest things you can do to save money, and then progress from there. You can take as much or little advice as you like. As the series progresses, a little more work may be involved, but you will definitely save more money.

Buy in bulk. Shop at a warehouse club for things you commonly buy at the grocery store. Even if you just go once/month, you will be saving money. They won't have everything you buy at the grocery store, but you would be surprised with the number of items they do have. Even if you don't do anything else to save money, your cost per serving/person will likely be a lot less if you buy in bulk as opposed to buying items at the grocery store (especially if they're not on sale!).
