Last weekend when we went to Grand Rapids to see the butterflies, we also made an epic trip to Costco. Now for those of you who don't know, Costco is a big box store that sells things in bulk for cheaper then most stores. This is great for two reasons, 1. It's much more affordable to buy things in bulk. 2. It cuts down on packaging and trips to the store, therefore helping our planet.
We were especially excited because we do not have a Costco near us and could find many organic products in bulk there that we typically pay 2-3x more for at our small health food store that is a ways from our house.
Now we have a list of all the products we love from Costco and are putting a list together for my mom so she can get us our favorites every month when she comes to visit. Some of our favorites are baking soda and vinegar (for cleaning), organic PB & J (boys' lunches), and organic instant oatmeal (boys' breakfasts). Saving the Earth, saving $-you know I love it!
Do you big box it? What's your favorite store? Any tips for buying in bulk?
