You should be buying your food in bulk. When I say “bulk” I mean food that you know you are going to eat on a regular basis that will not go bad quickly.
For me, I buy nuts: Pecans, Walnuts, Cashews, in bulk at Costco. Because I know that I am going to be eating these all the time.
This involves preplanning, which is a benchmark of building wealth. Making a plan today to spend money wisely in the future while maximizing your dollars.
You do have to be careful when buying in bulk by checking the price per unit. Some items that are sold in bulk are not actually cheaper than if you bought them individually. This is often the case with fruit. You have to check the price and make sure you are actually getting a better deal.
