Lately I've been agonizing over whether or not to purchase some items in bulk over at Amazon Grocery. I know most people will say it's cheaper to buy them at your local store, but it has been really hard figuring out Jed and my schedules to actually GET to a store! And I'm without a car, which makes it even more difficult. So finally I bit the bullet and ordered some items in bulk. I've heard mixed reviews about canned goods coming all bent up, which I'm not too worried about. Unless the dents open the seals. Hopefully in that case Amazon would send me new cans. But I am taking a little risk. The price is approximately the same as the store's cheapest brand. However, this way I can keep up a nice stock of tomatoes (we use a lot). And I also found some soup mixes by Bob's Red Mill that look fantastic. I've heard so many great reviews. It's hard enough to find time to make meals so anything that is healthy and EASY gets my vote! I'll give you a little update once my items arrive. By the way, I took advantage of a free month of Amazon Prime 2-day shipping. I'm going to cancel it as soon as I get the items, though. I don't want to risk being charged $80 after the free trial is over! Anyone else have experience buying groceries on Amazon? Or anywhere online for that matter?
