The winter food hoarding has begun!
Ok, I’m always a food hoarder no matter what the season, and like to keep fully stocked cupboards of all my tinned and dried stuff, I guess it’s habit from when I ran cafes, but I give myself extra brownie points for not letting things rot in the back of the cupboard (like young me used to!) pretty much everything gets used or passed along. I’m super organised with my stash.
I’m also so grateful for being able to have a lot of cupboards full of healthy food 🙏🏻 Once upon a time I could only manage ‘pay as you go’ eating and used to dream of being able to lessen my food bills in the long run by buying bulk/wholesale priced food. So I do not take my abundance of healthy food for granted 💚 And I’m happy to be able to support low impact local suppliers and co-operatives rather than junk food providers and multi national corporations 👍
One way to make it easier to buy wholesale is to collaborate with others, start your own little shopping co-op.. this is just half a stash that I shared with someone else, plus will be having more people come in on each future order so that we can buy big bags of nuts and weigh them out between us.
Bonus = less plastic waste!!! Now I just need to finally get my extra shelves up before putting in another couple of big orders over the next weeks!
If anyone gets snowed in in my area then you know where to come for supplies 😬
