The most obvious advantage to buying your food in bulk is spending less money over time. Why buy a protein bar at the gas station every day when you can buy a box of 20 bars for a cheaper price? Thinking ahead can make a world of difference for your wallet.

2. Food for Friends

More often than not, your friends come over and raid your refrigerator multiple nights a week. This often leaves you with a lack of food and an unshakeable hangry vibe that none of your friends appreciate. The simple solution is to buy more food so you can be a more accommodating host.

3. Free Samples

The majority of stores that sell their food in bulk have free samples available while you shop. Free food is the real goal when shopping and genuinely helpful when you are buying a food in bulk. You wouldn't want to buy a gallon of pickles only to realize when you get home that you don't actually like bread and butter pickles.

4. Reduce packaging

The ice caps are melting and the polar bears need new homes. Ever feel like you can't solve these environmental issues alone? Well, buying in bulk guarantees less packaging material and less waste is beneficial to our planet. Save the Earth, buy in bulk. 

5. Less Travel

Driving to the store every week can easily become mundane and costly. Solve this issue by making a trip to a bulk food supplier once every three weeks. By buying your food in bulk, you can set aside more time to relax on the weekends instead of braving the crowds of the grocery store.
