I am looking for a store in Missoula, Montana, that sells discount groceries items. I don't mean a dollar store. Also, I would like to know where I can buy large bags of various types of beans. I can't find big bags at Cosco.

Go to one of the search engines such as Google, or Dogpile and type in Aldis, Save-A-Lot, or discount grocery stores along with your city and state.
Do you live near a Chinese grocery? I couldn't believe how inexpensive their products are. You might even find something new to try. I love the cookies!
Missoula is bound to have bulk bins (self bag as little or as much as you need and pay per pound at an excellent price) for the beans at some sort of grocery market. The population where I live has two Winco stores and the population of my county is about the same as Missoula. I am fairly sure Missoula also has one or more Winco's. If not, do a Google search like MCW suggested or look in the yellow page phone book and ask neighbors. Those stores carry oodles of other discount items as well.

www.azurestandard.com has local buying groups; fantastic prices; they do western states; you might Google to see if your state is included; www.vitacost.com all orders $4.99 S&H irregardless of size; might group buy as well; www.honeyvillegrain.com another great healthy foods all orders irregardless of size $4.49 sandh; again, might see if can group buy!
I do a lot of shopping on line as the nearest good nutritious food for me is 40 miles round trip. I buy fresh eggs off craigslist; buy fresh real butter from a creamery; buy from local growers markets in season; fresh, dehydrate, vacuum seal; so I have lots of good products to last me!
I love the Anasazi beans, so well, that I am going to be ordering 25 lbs of them from www.bobsredmill.com; they keep best refrigerated or frozen; I am going to fill my freezer with them; they are the best beans I have tasted; they can be used instead of any other kind; locally they want $7 for a cup! Yikes!
Whatever is a person to do! go on line and research! even with S&H many times is less expensive than buying locally! (03/02/2011)
