I don’t know about the rest of you but I definitely have a buying-in-bulk problem. My fiancé and I recently had to completely overhaul a couple of our closets because we had acquired so many bulk items that the organization we had previously employed just wasn’t working for us anymore. I’m such a fan of bulk items for a couple of reasons: 1) it is so much cheaper! Whenever I sit down and do the hard math on how much I save by buying in bulk, it’s simply astounding! and 2) I very much enjoy the convenience and efficiency of having extra (soap, rice, fill-in-your-favorite-bulk-item-here) on hand. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve run out of something (deodorant, flour, fill-in-your-favorite-bulk-item-here) and been so pleased with myself for future-proofing when I find out I have (at least) one already stocked away! Here are some of my must-haves that only ever get bought in bulk.
Soap – Amazon $31.98 for 2 ($0.49 per oz)
Dish Soap – Smart & Final ~$16.00 ($0.09 per oz!)
Lotion – Amazon $55.91 for 4 ($0.87 per ounce)
Chocolate Chips – Costco $8.98 ($0.12 per ounce)
Anyone else a bulk-buying fanatic? Do you have any tips or tricks of the trade when it comes to buying in bulk?? Let me know in the comments!
