What kind of items do you buy the most?
Renee Bergeron: "Always fruit and veggies. I once bought a 40 pound box of bananas intending to bake with some of them and freeze the leftovers for smoothies....my kids ate the entire box in less than a week! We can go through 20 pounds of apples a week. We buy flour, oats, and rice in 50 pound bags. I buy 4 double loaves of Kirkland bread at Costco at a time. People are always surprised that we only go through a gallon of milk a week, but we don't actually drink milk, we just use it in cereal, oatmeal or for baking."
Cindy Lutz: "Meats, dairy, breads and cereals, staples monthly."
Catey Ball: "We try to concentrate on staples vs premade/packaged foods. We bake/cook a lot from scratch, which not only tends save money, it makes me feel a little better to know what exactly we are eating instead of wondering about a list of ingredients that is often incredibly long! Chicken is the meat we most often buy, oats, rice, quinoa, beans, eggs, fresh and/or frozen fruits and veggies, cheese, and since we bake from scratch we tend to buy large quantities of four, sugar, etc."
