Bulking up

Last year, after seeing "An Inconvenient Truth"
and reading "Animal Vegetable Miracle,"
I reconsidered our breakfast options.

We were eating oatmeal most mornings.
And I was buying endless containers of it.
When I found a shop that carried oatmeal in bulk bins, it hit me:
Buy a 50 lb bag*!

Just under a year later,
I have emptied my storage containers.
Time to restock.

*I don't think I would have reached this conclusion
were it not for "
The Tightwad Gazette" by Amy Dacyczyn.


  1. I loved that book and movie. Can I also recommend watching King Corn and The Future of Food? And don't forget to get your copy of Omnivore's Dilemma! :)

  2. Good for you! We are bulk buyers too, saves time and money for us :)


Thank you!
