9 Things to Buy in Bulk

While buying some things in bulk doesn’t make sense because of their size and quantities, there are many items you can buy in bulk that can save you a bundle over a year, and won’t take up too much space.

Here are my Top 9 items to buy in bulk:

Buy Bulk Tip #1) Your Vitamins

If you take vitamins, most likely you’re religious about it. Meaning, you take them day after day, every day, no matter what. In this case, you stand to save some serious cash over a year by buying in bulk. Have you seen what just one bottle of vitamins costs?

Buy Bulk Tip #2) Cell Phone Minutes

Depending on your provider, package and how much you talk on your cell phone, you could stand to save a pile of cash by buying your minutes in bulk. Not only will you save, you’ll never have to worry about overage charges ever again.

Buy Bulk Tip #3) Non-Perishable Food Products

Depending on the size of the container or box, buying certain things in bulk really makes sense. Small items like cans of tuna or pet food, even small boxes, and cans of soda or any other beverage, will save you a lot over buying these things one item at a time.

Buy Bulk Tip #4) Blank CDs and DVDs

Even in this world of streaming audio and video, many people still use CDs and DVDs to back up data, music and video. Buy these in bulk and you may never have to by another CD or DVD again.

Buy Bulk Tip #5) Laundry Soap and Bleach

In any household, it’s a fact that there is always laundry that needs to be washed. Especially for larger families, buying laundry soap in the largest bottles you can find can save you up to 50 cents per wash load.

Buy Bulk Tip #6) Toothpaste and Toothbrushes

You’re never going to go a day without brushing your teeth at least once, most likely twice or three times. When you stock up on these essential items, you won’t have to buy them for months, maybe even years. And you’ll never be without a new toothbrush to use.

Buy Bulk Tip #7) Office Supplies

If you have any kind of business, have kids in school or do work for your job at home, you know how many office supplies you can go through in a year. When you buy in bulk, you’ll save on all your office supplies. And you won’t have to visit Office Depot but once a year.

Buy Bulk Tip #8) Alcohol

I don’t drink. But if you’re a drinker, it just doesn’t pay to buy a bottle here and a bottle there. When you buy by the case, you stand to save up to 50% or more.

Buy Bulk Tip #9) Shampoo, Soap, Shaving Cream and TP

Why buy bathroom needs a little at a time, when you know you’ll end up using them in a short period of time anyway? Buy bathroom items in bulk, and you’ll save cash instantly, in addition to all the gas you’d burn going back and forth to the supermarket.

What items can you think of that you can save on, by buying them in bulk? Think of things you know you’ll need, and will probably use a lot of. Add them to this list, and you could save enough over a year to do something nice with your family. Or you can always add your savings to your rainy day fund.
