Shopping on a Budget
Buy in Bulk
The bulk department has a number of grocery staples. Buying in bulk allows you to buy only what you need, avoiding waste and unnecessary purchases. It’s good for your wallet and allows you to bring your own reusable container from home. Here’s a quick video on how to use the bulk aisle to get you started.
Look for Budget-friendly Brands
