What To Buy in Bulk, What To Buy Online

Spread the love

I have one place designated in my house for basically all bulk items, although I keep the food in the pantry. This way, I know where to look when I run out of something.
This is a list so that you can streamline your life by having everything necessary on hand and not spending extra gas money to make a last-minute store run and not paying more for something by buying it one at a time.

HIGH-USE ITEMS (Here’s My Examples):
canned olives – Costco
canned diced tomato – Costco
Aleve – 225 count
beef jerky – Costco
frozen blueberries – Costco
frozen pineapple – Costco
brown rice – Costco
beef stew packets
taco packets
vinegar
baking soda

Any item that you need to go to a special store for (can’t get online or at primary grocery store) OR canned items used frequently in recipes, keep at least ONE backup:
all-purpose spray
local honey
Whole Foods crackers
Whole Foods frozen kale/strawberries

Whole Foods wipes
Whole Foods pads
Whole Foods bar soap
shave cream
Seventh Generation laundry detergent

canned tomato paste
canned tomato sauce
canned crushed tomato
canned green bean

Things I always buy ONLINE, so never need to worry about:
eco dish pods
earplugs
essential oils
razors
bulk toilet paper – Amazon
bulk paper towels – Amazon
Wonder Seed shampoo/conditioner (buy bulk to get free shipping)
makeup

Things to shop for in REAL-LIFE:
