When you do your supermarket shopping, do you ever buy anything from the bulk bins, as opposed to purchasing the items pre-packaged?

I keep forgetting to do this, and really should start - because i looked at some of the prices today & a lot of items work out cheaper from the bulk bins, than if they're pre-packaged... Admittedly I do buy lollies/candy for Gaby from the bulk bin, because then I know there is a specific amount that she'll be eating - and she can't sneak any lol

Do you mean loose items like flour and oats and such? Cuz if you do then no we dont. Dont even think the stores we've gone to have those anymore...Ive never seen them anyway. Havent since high school.

If you mean buying several of the same items for a cheaper price then yes, we've done that recently.

~My thanks to *Kiliki* for the siggy and Lucy S for the blinkies~

We buy from bulk bins, just for a few things.
We buy our granola from bulk bins, because then I can get the amount I need without waste.. and it's cheaper.
