Are you a supermarket shopper?...
When shopping at the supermarket it is extremely hard to avoid all the many layers of packaging on just about every item in there.
Buying in bulk is the only answer, that way you can take your own jars/bags with you and replenish them as needed. Saving you money by only buying the amount you need until your next shop (and buying from bulk is cheaper) as well as largely reducing the amount of packaging waste created from purchasing items at the supermarket.
We have slowly been converting our kitchen cupboard groceries into glass jars and although I was buying several items in bulk already, I realised that almost everything I need in the kitchen can be bought from bulk out of the Adelaide Central Markets. Including items such as olive oil; vinegar; nut butters; oats; flour; spices; herbs...the list goes on.
My top 4 stores for bulk are: 1. Goodies & Grains. 2. House of Health. 3. The Honey Shoppe. 4. Go Vita Health Food Store.
