Do you buy your groceries in bulk to save?

    Some things yes, some things no.  I buy almond flour, coconut flour, flaxseed meal, honey, coconut oil, and spices in large quantities.  We also buy beef and pork by the whole animal and chickens by the 50 count.  However, it's hard to get more than a week's worth of fresh produce in the refrigerator, so I can't really buy those things in bulk unless I'm canning.

    No. There's only 3 people in my house so buying in bulk doesn't make a lot of sense. Plus my tiny fridge and freezer suck.

    Even with a small number of people in the house it is still a benefit to stock up on non-perishable items that you eat often when they are on sale.  When things we use go on 10 for $10 I buy in bulk and then don't have to worry about replenishing it later at full price.   Plus I consider our full pantry as part of our disaster kit so a two-fer.

    Bummer about your freezer.  Ours is not so big, but I still try to stock up on meats when they are on sale.   I find it takes less room if I separate everything into serving sizes and freeze it right away.   Ex.  Chicken breats come in a 10 pack.   I would freeze them as 4, 4 and 2.    (4 when we are all here; 2 if the kids are out or to make soup stir fry, ect.)

    I stock up on nonperishables when they're on sale. Especially if it's a good sale. I try to buy as much meat as I can when it's on sale.

    we buy somethings in bulk. things that are cheaper when purchased in bulk, or if they are the same price things that save me time to buy in bulk and not have to keep on going out to get them!
