Canned and dried food
Canned food like soups and tuna, as well as dried foods like pasta and beans are always great bets when buying in bulk. Prices are way lower per unit than at the grocery store. Just make sure you aren’t buying more than you need! And, always watch out for expiration dates. While most canned and dried foods will last you a while, some expiration dates might surprise you.
