Bulk Organic Mushrooms

One of the strategies for surviving hard times is buying in bulk. This is something I’ve always done, but is even more important now given my current circumstances.

When most people think of bulk foods, perhaps it is multi-packs of Cheetos®, big boxes of sugary cereal, etc. that come first to mind. You know, the kind of junk only too available in discount warehouse stores.

I’m guessing that’s not the case for readers of this blog. You probably conjured up images of 25 pound sacks of beans and rice. Me too. :)

Speaking of which, I’m nearing the bottom of a couple huge bags of lima beans and split peas, so a new order is in the offing. Usually shipping on such heavy items is cost-prohibitive, but I’ve found, though not organic, Honeyville, with their $4.49 shipping anywhere in the US, to be the best deal.

Anyway, I digress. What I really wanted to point out was that even some foods that might otherwise fall off the shopping list of an “actionized” worker can still be enjoyed if you buy them in bulk. Personally, I eat mushrooms daily, a wide variety, and am glad not to have to give them up.

When I mentioned Miracle Noodles a while back in my newsletter, one astute subscriber wrote me asking whether I recommended their mushrooms. He felt they were on the expensive side. I agree and responded with the tip I share today.

Actually, I first blogged about this company a couple years ago, and I’ve been a loyal and frequent customer ever since. I’m speaking of FungusAmongus (what a cool name). They have the lowest prices around on bulk, organic, shiitake and other mushrooms. And, they also offer truffles and the like, if money is less an issue for you.

Now, if only I could find a good bargain on bulk, organic, frozen berries! (I used to pick up caseloads at the “local” health food store in order to get the 10% discount for buying in quantity. But, even then, it was still painful to the wallet. Alas, I’ve been acquiescing to the ultra-sprayed store-brand bags of late.)

  1. I was at Costco yesterday and there were a few CR items that I could purchase in bulk. It ended up that aside from produce and some frozen berries there was only some canned tuna. And of course some other non-food items.

    I went there to return some items that had peanuts a la recall.

    I’ve gotten purchased organic frozen blueberries from Costco as well as mixed dried mushrooms (not organic). Costco doesn’t always carry the same things all the time so they may not always be there.

    Good luck on working for yourself. I love your blog and have learned a lot from reading it.
