Because Buying in Bulk is AWESOME!

Hello There!

If you remember, or if you are new, this past weekend was spent up in Northern Michigan. It was the attempted annual (I say attempted because we missed last year,) combo family of Hunky Boyfriend and Stunning Family getaway weekend. We had a lovely time, with great conversation and delicious food.

Saturday afternoon we ventured (minus the dad's) to the local Amish Bulk Food Store! I haven't been in a while and it was even more wonderful than I remember it to be...

Seriously, I never even knew there were so many flavors of jello - I do prefer the clear packaging because 1) I can reuse it and 2) Look at how pretty it is!

Hunky Boyfriend checking out the "snacky" foods. We actually purchased a bunch of dried fruit so that we can make our own trail mix - which I am pretty excited about - No more feeding the parts I don't like to the birds! I'll try to post photos of that process when we get around to it! :)

Just a friendly reminder for those who may try to walk off with a 50lb bag of flour, or a 12 lb chocolate bar...

Today's Etsy finds are those that you can buy in bulk!
