Re: Once a Month groceries?

I shop bimonthly, so I can share my tips for that and maybe some will still apply and be helpful.

- We buy fresh produce and have frozen veggie & fruits for when we run out. (I really like making smoothies with the Cascadia Farm organic berries.)

- We buy our bananas at Costco in 3lb bags. I buy one bag that is ready to eat, another that is close to being ripe and another that is completely green. Those will last us about 2-3 weeks. I use half a banana in my daily protein shakes and freeze the other half of the banana for when the fresh run out.

- Regarding dairy: My Hubby & Kids drink Coconut Milk and I drink Almond Milk - they tend to have long expiration dates and I buy enough to last until the next shopping trip. I enjoy organic cottage cheese, but that only lasts a short time after purchase. :/

- Freeze loaves of bread and defrost as needed.
