  1. hmmm, the problem with ordering bulk foods online is the shipping. when i was living back East, i fell in love with www.nutsonline.com because they have a huge selection, good prices, and amazing customer service. but now that i'm back in California, the cost of shipping from their NJ warehouse kills me.

    i may check out one of these sites next, since they're based in CO:
    http://www.bulkwholefoods.com/
    http://www.naturalgrocers.com/grocery...

    or this one, because it looks like they offer $5 super-saver shipping if you spend a certain amount:

    you can occasionally find really good deals on Amazon.

    but you honestly may just be better off joining a local co-op if you have one nearby.
