Rice

Rice is a survivalist’s staple: some agriculture departments put its shelf life at as much as 30 years. At the very least, it’s good for two years. So don’t shy away from getting a big bag. At Frugal Foodie’s local Associated Market, 20 pounds of store-brand brand long-grain rice will set you back $10.49, or $0.52 per pound. A two-pound bag, meanwhile, is $0.75 cents per pound. (Total savings: $4.60.) Opt for brown rice to go cheap and healthy.

Rice is the one thing I cannot cook. I always screw it up. I get the boil in a big rice or minute rice now.

 i usually buy minute rice too. I am usually pairing it with a crockpot meal so it just makes sense to buy the less time consuming option.

No, I don't buy rice in bulk....again, it's a grain/grain food that bugs love.  I'd never buy brown rice, either, for health reasons.
