Eat Healthier on a Budget: Shop in Bulk

FIVE-bulk-web

Are you a frugal shopper? If so, the Abundance Bulk Department is the place for you.

Avoid the waste

A great thing about shopping in bulk is that it you can bring in your own jars, plastic containers, paper bags, or whatever you have in the house to stock up on pantry basics, health and beauty supplies, and much more. If you don’t have anything to use, that’s OK, too. We have a wide selection of containers made of different materials for you to choose from for a low cost. We also provide paper bags at no charge.

The reason it’s called “bulk” is because that’s how we buy it. The people who make the products we buy don’t need to spend their money or time on packaging costs, so it’s much cheaper for us to buy. We pass those savings onto you, which makes shopping in bulk a really great way to save money on many everyday items.

You only buy what you need and, since there’s no packaging, it’s cheaper. Shopping in bulk is the perfect marriage of saving money and reducing waste.
