Reader’s Digest, “5 Ways to Save More Money When Buying in Bulk”

Andrea was interviewed by Reader’s Digest about the benefits of bulk grocery shopping and how to stretch your budget further without falling into common traps of overspending and wasting food as well as other perishables.

Here’s a sneak peek from one of her tips from the piece, published on

“Contrary to popular opinion, you can buy fruits and veggies in bulk—and still come out with more green.

Look in your grocery store’s and bulk store’s circulars for bulk produce deals.

Weigh the bulk bag of produce on sale (typically potatoes, citrus fruits, or apples) to find the best deal. Woroch notes that sometimes the bags are filled with even more produce than advertised, so be sure to search around for the heaviest bag in the bunch to get the most bang for your buck.
That said, you should only buy what you will use. Since produce has a limited shelf life, you don’t want to purchase more than you can eat in a week, because food tossed is money lost. Use these smart ways to keep fruits and veggies fresh longer and try creative ways to lengthen their lifespan, for example, apples can become applesauce or shred the potatoes and freeze them to use later in homemade hashbrowns.”
