April GFS Bulk Shopping Trip

Bulk Shopping at GFS ~ Our Cozy Den

I just love shopping at Gordon Food Service for most of my family’s groceries! We get great deals on almost all of our staples: flour, sugar, rice, spices, eggs, cheese, sausage, and more!

This month’s bulk trip turned out to be almost completely cheese! It’s my favorite food, so I guess it makes sense that we go through quite a bit of it!

Here’s my receipt from my trip:

What I got, and how long I expect* it to last:

2 canisters of oatmeal (1 month)

3 huge 5-lb bags of cheese: 1 each mozzarella, cheddar, and mexican blend

(mozzarella – 4 months, cheddar – 3 months, mexican – 6 weeks)

2 packages of colby jack cheese snack sticks (2 months)

16 pounds of sausage links (6 months)


*my estimates are just that — estimates. Sometimes we go on a sausage binge and eat way more than usual. Other times we forget it’s in there and it lasts a long time. It really just depends on our whims sometimes!


I’ve gotten the question in the past — how do I get my cheese to last so long?

The answer is that I freeze it in quart size bags, and pull them out as needed. Shredded cheese freezes really well!
