Three great reasons to buy potatoes in bulk for your frugal family

When trying to feed your family on a budget, minimising trips to the supermarket can help save you time and money. If you're working to reduce your family's food bill, buying potatoes in bulk is a great way to start. Check out these three great reasons to buy potatoes in bulk for your frugal family.

Health benefits

With low-carb diets enjoying popularity of late, many people are steering away from high-starch vegetables such as potatoes, and are as a result missing out on the health benefits. Potatoes are a great source of fibre, folate, vitamin C, potassium, B vitamins, calcium, magnesium, amino acids, and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. As such, potatoes are an ideal way to naturally prevent and remedy a range of health concerns- the vitamin C helps combat inflammation, skin problems, scurvy and high blood pressure; B vitamins help reduce stress and boost brain function; calcium and magnesium work to reduce rheumatism; and the fibre content aids digestion and healthy bowel movements.

In this way, potatoes are a cost-effective way to include vitamins and minerals in your family's diet, while alleviating a variety of aliments naturally.

Long term storage

Because they can be stored for a long period of time, buying potatoes in bulk is a great way to ensure that you have a constant supply of fresh potatoes at hand. It is important to store your potatoes correctly if you wish to maximise the length of storage and prevent rot or mould growth. Potatoes must be stored in a dry, dark and cool environment, free from humidity. The ideal storage location for potatoes is one where there is a consistent temperature of below 10 degrees Celsius and  2–4 degrees C is optimal for long-term storage. Don't keep your potatoes in sealed containers: opt instead for baskets, mesh bags or boxes with good ventilation. When stored correctly, potatoes can last several months without greening, rotting or getting mouldy.

Budget friendly local or organic

If you'd prefer to buy local or organically-grown produce but your weekly budget just doesn't stretch that far, buying your potatoes in bulk might be the solution. When purchasing produce from a wholesaler or directly from the farm, the price per kilo is usually considerably less than the retail cost for a smaller quantity. This saving can make the price of local or organic potatoes affordable for even the most budget-conscious family.
