Buying Turmeric in Bulk – The Cheapest Option?

Turmeric, Buy in Bulk

With an impressive array of potential health benefits, turmeric has become a popular spice among health-conscious people, and today you can buy small jars or pouches of this extraordinary spice in almost every grocery store in North America and the UK. However, those who use turmeric on a regular basis and/or in large quantities may want to consider buying it in bulk in order to save some hard-earned money. And, if you only use it occasionally, you can still ask your friends and neighbors if they would like to share a bulk purchase. If you cannot find a brick-and-mortar store where you can buy turmeric in bulk in your area, or if you simply like the convenience of buying online and getting your bulk purchase shipped directly to your doorstep, read on for some interesting options.

Is Buying in Bulk Always the Cheapest Option?

Buying dried turmeric in bulk is typically cheaper per unit than buying those jars or pouches individually, but it doesn't mean everyone should buy it in bulk. If you can't use up your turmeric powder or dried sliced turmeric before it expires, it's likely a waste of money to order a large amount all at once, no matter how much money you think you're saving when you place your order. What's more, you have to have enough airtight, uncompromised containers for storing your bulk food items, plus a dark, dry pantry or another place with enough space to store those containers. If you don't store your spices properly, their shelf life can shorten dramatically.
