Hey, Wretha. As you explained both your background and your current situation, it makes PERFECT SENSE to shop the way that you do! I thought I had it bad with a 40 mile round trip to the grocery store but THREE FRIGGIN’ HOURS???!!!!! Honey…I’d build a special hut just for bulk items if that was how far from town that I lived! (LOL) We have two upright deep freezers and an inline gas generator that kicks in when we have frequent storms, to power up the house. I guess I do “bulk” by making extra large batches of prepared food so I don’t have to cook every day. So, we’ll have 20 servings of chili, soups, casseroles; baked goods; chopped veggies and loads of frozen fruit to enjoy. If that qualifies as bulk, I guess I do bulk, too. Right now, Michigan Strawberries are in their prime and since last weekend, I’ve frozen 50 quarts. That should take us until next June to finish off. Next comes blueberries and then peaches…Lordy, Lordy…fresh peaches in January….m-m-m-m-m-m–m!
