Bulk Barn and Grocery Trip This Weekend

Got my containers together ready for my next trip into Bulk Barn this weekend. I think this is my biggest refill trip so far. I keep adding products onto my list these past few weeks. 

Milk chocolate chips and Amber Honey
Large Rolled oats and Panko bread crumbs.
Ground coffee, Grahm crackers, Pretzels, Peanut butter , Almonds, Cashews, Pistachios, Macaroons, Chocolate covered almonds, 3 candy treats.
Chicken gravy, Coconut oil, Taco spice(new to me), Table salt.
Shreddies and Bran flakes. I added a scoop of Thomson raisins when I got home into the Bran flakes I already had from last week.

I did find 6 metal straws! I also seen they carry Cheerios now too!


Here is the better half of my grocery trip.

Fleece blanket for liners in the cloth diapers. Cotton yarn to crochet some wipes.
Single boxes of tissue. No wrapping.
The kids like this kind of cranberry juice, but the cover is waste, not recyclable. Though, I have been having a real hard time finding the right reusable juice box. So after some thought in the aisle, I decided to try these once they are empty for the kids at school. They are small and should seal properly. Washable too!
Allen’s apple juice and Oasis juices.(Container and caps/ring are recyclable!)Compliments cranberry juice(cap is not recyclable, this was a test buy)
Go ADL!!!! Milk cartons, caps and pull outs are recyclable! Coffee cream cap is waste.
Cat food by the cans, not boxed.
Blueberries, ground cherries and gooseberries. The last two types are new to us, from NB, no one really likes them. 2 bundles of carrots, bananas, pepper, corn, apples, tomatoes(DIY tomatoe paste), turnip, kiwi and sweet potatoes.
How I store my carrots: Lay them out.
Cut off the tops. Wash with cold water and a vegetable scrubber.
Stored in a long dish, wrapped in a wet towel. Stays crunchy and hard for well over a week. Replace towel every few days and keep it wet.
Full as can be.
