What if I told you that you buy groceries cheaper, in bigger quantities (if you want) all the while you are helping to reduce food waste. Sounds good? Keep on reading on how you can do the same.

Stocking your pantry

I don’t about you guys but in our house, the food is one of the most expensive expense posts. We are seven people every other week, I’m going to let that sink in a little. SEVEN. That means a lot of food. And as much as I love cooking some things are tedious.

Like re-filling my pantry, which is quite often. Often with things I don’t realise I don’t have until I need them. Like coconut milk and baking sheets.

I know, you are asking why I just don’t buy in bulk. I hear you. Just hear me out. What if you can buy in bulk, not contributing to food waste and pay a lot less than you would in a normal store?

I discovered Matsmart when I wanted to get things for my advent party. I wanted to get good quality products, without paying a fortune for it. While also saving the environment. Killing a bunch of birds with one stone. Yes, I know that it’s called killing two birds with one stone.

How it works

The way it works is that Matsmart buys up dry grocery that is seasonal and didn’t get sold out at your regular food store. Or when brands re-designs their packaging. Or food that is perfectly safe to eat but is close to expiration date. You can only buy dry goods, which is perfect for stocking up your pantry.

I’m not a horder by any means, but if I can get food that I need anyway cheaper, while also making a difference in terms of the environment I’m all the more happy for it.

Back to the advent party, I managed to get everything I needed and a huge plus. It’s all organic. It saved me time, money and hassle. Because it’s only dry produce I can plan this way ahead. And if I can get one thing crossed off my list in time it’s a big win. I can be somewhat of a procrastinaror.
