Today we are reliant on more than country food. There are basic store-bought foods that take up a lot of our budget.


Think about the foods that you need to have on hand, that you use daily.

What are some dried or canned foods you could

purchase in bulk? 

 ᐃᓇᓘᔭᐃᑦ / NOODLES 

 ᐳᓐᓂᖅ / LARD 

ᖃᔪᖅ / SOUP

ᐸᓚᐅᒑᖅ / FLOUR

 ᐊᓛᓰᑦ / RICE 

If you bought these foods as a case lot, you can save money. If you cannot afford this or use a full case of something, consider who you might split cases with. Look into the possibilities of joint purchases.
