Love this piece. I shop a lot at Bulk Barn and I love how they have very affordable containers to encourage reusability and sustainability. There's also something really satisfying about being able to walk the aisles, explore the variety of spices, nuts, and snacks they have, and filling out your containers. I don't know what it is but it's fun 😂

Also love the mention of the Istanbul spice bazaar in the end. Before moving to Toronto, I spent my entire life in Lebanon and I used to go to spice markets frequently. The video made me feel really nostalgic.

I'm glad I'm not the only person who likes certain foods a little bit stale. (I truly thought I was!)

I hope the bulk food stores come to my geographical area. I would definitely shop there for staples and use my own containers.
