Buying In Bulk

With all the canning, freezing and baking I hope to do this fall I realized that we would need a LOT more flour and sugar. So I headed over to the Cash and Carry (restaurant supply) and priced the stuff there. After about an hour, I came out with 25 pounds of sugar, 75 pounds of flour, 10 pounds of grated cheese, 10 pounds of meatballs, 8 pounds of sausage, 6 pounds of butter and other misc. items.

I think the boys were a bit surprised when they went to unload the van when I got home.

Now the only problem was how to store all this stuff. So I went out and bought a storage bin and found some stuff around the house I already had. I wonder how long it will all last???

this ice cream bucket worked perfectly for the sugar (now I just have to go to the Tillamook cheese factory and get some more. And eat some ice cream while we’re there!)

I need some of those. How much do they sell them for? We are going to seaside this weekend. If we can get down there shall I get some for you?
