WinCo Bulk Bins

So, some of you may know this, but at Winco in the bulk bin section, you can actually order 25# bags of food. They usually have some bags out on a shelf in that section like rice, beans, oats, birdseed. . . . But, you can special order anything! If you look closely on the label (towards the top left), it tells you what size of bag it comes in (for example, 25# bag) and down on the right, there is a price for the 25# bag.

Why is this so great? Winco has a much wider variety of grains and legumes than what the cannery offers. If there is something that your family eats a lot of you can get a big bag or if it's something that you want to learn how to cook with, you can try out a little and then get a 25# bag. Then order extra cans for our monthly canning session and can it! :) Most grains and legumes are okay to can in the #10 cans. It will give more variety to your food storage. So don't be afraid to try something new. I bought some pearled barley today and that is what I am going to learn how to use. I'll keep you posted on what I do with it.
