Food Storage Tips: How I love case lot sales! Or why Utah is awesome

Click now to get PREPARED!

One of the best things about living in Utah is the case lot sales.

I spent the first six years of my marriage in California. I bought in bulk there too. When canned tomatoes went on sale for 33 cents per can, I would load up the cart with 60 to 90 cans if I could. But the boxes were not on the shelves, so the cans were loose in the cart. The checker had to count out each can individually and the receipts were a few feet long. Usually I couldn’t get the quantities I wanted in one trip, so I had to go back.

Bulk buying sometimes made for awkward conversation with the checker. In 1998 I bought eight 5-pound bags of flour for 69 cents each. The checker asked, “Do you like to bake cakes?” Buying large quantities of sale items was seen as a little weird.

Now, during a case lot sale, I just walk through the case lot section of the store and throw a case of peanut butter or canned vegetables or tomato sauce into the cart. The checker asks how many cases I have of which items, and scans it from a paper by the register. It’s so convenient. At some stores, you can even fill out the case lot order form, wait a few days, and come to pick it up. They will even load it in the car for you.

If you live in an area without case lot sales, you can usually special order large quantities of sale items if you go to the manager’s desk. The grocery store people prefer that to you clearing the shelves.

If you are in Utah county, Macey’s grocery store just started their case lot sale. I went in their Pleasant Grove store on Wednesday at lunch time, and that place was hopping. The clerk was astonished. “Usually we get this kind of traffic on the last day of the sale, not the first,” he said. More people are getting serious about food storage. Harmon’s case lot sale finishes up on Saturday. They have a great price on olive oil.
