Buying in Bulk Leaves More Money in Your Pocket

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!



Have you ever wondered if the Family Pack in Wegman's is worth it? Back when I started couponing smaller pack of items with coupons was a better deal. That was also when I had two toddlers and two infants that didn't have the humungous appetites they have now at 6, 8 and 9. Plus another little guy that eats more than they do and he is only one!

I have found in the last year that buying in bulk, especially with a large family like mine, is a necessity for keeping more cash in my pocket and more food on the table. I cringe now when I have to buy smaller amounts at once - because I KNOW I am paying more for it. And paying more sucks!


Take ground beef for example. I prefer 90% Lean Ground Beef. I would love Organic but that isnt in our budget so regular it is. If you buy a small 1 pound package of 90% lean Ground Beef - you will pay $5.00/pound just about anywhere. Wegmans, Walmart. Target. Aldi's used to sell it but I think that sticker shock was too much for people and I haven't seen it offered in any size there recently.

BUT, if you purchase the 90% lean Ground Beef in the Family Pack size - you will pay $3.49/pound for almost 6 pounds! $28.84 versus $20.17. A savings of $8.67!

Now, the trick is to make this last for the week or longer. Grab some gallon size freezer bags,  split that meat up into 1 pound (I like to do 1 1/2 pounds because of our size family) bags and refrigerate for a day or two and if you haven't used it yet, then freeze it. If you are freezing it I like to wrap it in plastic wrap, then sometimes some parchment paper and place it in two freezer bags. Helps with lessening the freezer burn.

I'm planning on using my meat for tacos, spaghetti & meatballs, Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie and a taco bake. Yes, my kids love taco flavor and all of them will eat so we will have two variations of tacos.


 If you noticed, all but one of those meals above requires cheese in it. We do use quite a bit of cheese here and thru the years I have tried to find several ways to save on it. The best way - is the Family Pack size at Wegmans. Hands down.  Gone are the days of the little 8 cup or 16 cup bags of shredded cheese. Even buying a block of cheese and shredding it myself costs more. No, now I always buy the 5 pound bag at Wegmans. 5 pounds is 80 ounces or 20 cups worth. Versus the little 8 oz bags that have 2 cups in them. (Cups as a dry measure is measured in volume & weight). You can see in my picture that to = one pound of shredded cheese buying the smaller bag is a cost of $5.18. The big bag rather has a per pound cost of $2.20. (5x $2.20 = $10.99 Price). Buying the cheese in the little bags costs $25.90. WHOA. Big difference. The only thing is you don't get all the different flavors but I am ok with that if I am saving $15!

Again, I separate this out into frozen baggies and measure 1-3 cups per bag. Cheese freezes really well so even if you forgot to take it out for a recipe it still works great. I usually buy this size bag of cheese once every two weeks or so. I picked it up today and the last time I bought it was 17 days ago. We literally use cheese every day so it goes pretty quick here. If you don't use it as often it can last a few weeks.

How this helps me save? I have to plan out my meals ahead of time and I don't have to go to the store several times a week. It may seem like you are paying more upfront which defeats the purpose of a smaller grocery bill, but in reality I only buy my meat every other week or so which means every 2 weeks my grocery bill is significantly less. (I have a similar savings on chicken I will share another time)

So, that is it in a nutshell. Or, a cheese shell? Either way, this saves our family a ton of money every month and I thought I should pass it along. Want other tips from me on how I budget for our family of 8? Comment below or on facebook and I will be happy to write up some more tips.

God Bless! Off to make my tacos. :)

"Be The Best Mom You Can Be" Review & Giveaway

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!

This post & giveaway is sponsored by FamilyChristian. Any opinions are my own!


Do you ever feel like you aren't doing the best job as a mom? I do. So many times. If you haven't been following MyCNYMommy long, you probably don't know that I have 5 children ranging in ages from 1-9. Being a mom to my crew is so rewarding and as we all know.. rewards don't come easy.

I myself struggle with being the "perfect mom".. not necessarily perfect in other's eyes, but perfect in what I envision I should be as a mom. I'd love to do my daughters' hair fancy every day, have a home baked dessert every night for dinner, read each of the kids a book they like each night before bed. Reality is, last night we had generic oreos for dessert (and after school snack), one of my daughter's got an awesome hairdo yesterday while the other did not, and if I get to read to one kid tonight it will be a miracle with all I have going on. So, yet again I feel defeated as a mom.

I was given an opportunity to check out the book, "Be The Best Mom You Can Be" by Marina & Gregory Slayton, a few weeks ago. Right from the beginning I knew this book would speak to me - I loved this paragraph so much I immediately put it on my personal Facebook Page:


It said - "Moms Matter. What we do will be remembered long after we are gone." We all know this. And I know that while "The World wants to label us and establish our identity....God wants us to know and be confident of our identity in Him."

Pretty profound stuff.

The book has chapters on Generational Curses, Single Moms, Working Moms and "Parenting in the Age of Busy". While offering advice for any moms, the book's focus is on parenting in a spiritual way with spiritual encouragement.

To tell you the truth I didn't read it straight thru. For these type of books I like that I can pick and choose which part speaks to me at the time and that is what I read in my limited availability.

No, I am not the perfect mom is my own eyes. But, I am in God's eyes. And, guess what? My daughter came home from school and thanked me for her awesome hairdo.. and when my son found out Oreos were the after school snack, he ran and kissed me on the cheek. As long as they think I'm perfect sometimes, that's all that matters. In the meantime, I'll "Be The Best Mom" I can be.

The Book is part of Family Christian Stores 40% Off coupon today - you can get it with the code HONOR for only $13.79 (Reg. $22.99). Valid 11/11 Only.

Would you love to read this book or share it with someone you know that needs a little mom encouragement? Great! I have two copies of this book to giveaway. You can earn extra entries by completing the following:
