What to Buy in Bulk: 5 Items to Help You Save at the Checkout Counter

What to buy in bulk

It can be hard to plan ahead when buying household essentials, whether it’s at the pharmacy, the grocery store or anywhere you go for crucial supplies on a regular basis. With a little planning though, you could rack up big savings. Buying specific items in bulk can add up to big savings over the long-term. So if you are wondering what to buy in bulk among your household items, read more below:


When you think of what to buy in bulk, toothpaste may not immediately come to mind. But it’s great because it stores easily, has a long shelf life and is something that you use every day. Because the tubes aren’t too large, it won’t end up in you using more, which is a common problem for items bought in bulk.


Pasta is perfect because it can be stored in your pantry for years and buying more can lead to substantial savings at the checkout counter. This versatile food can be used in countless dishes so you won’t get bored with it either.

Toilet Paper

This is a classic bulk buy item that every family should be purchasing. Families use a lot of toilet paper so having a lot around the house is never bad. And again, the savings are big if you buy it in bulk.


Soap will never expire whether liquid or bar. Bar soap is easy to properly portion as well. But for liquid soap, we recommend you keep a large bottle under the sink and then fill up a smaller container for use. That way, people will be less likely to overuse.

Dishwasher detergent

Like regular soap, dishwashing detergent doesn’t go bad and because it is naturally divided into ideal portion sizes in your dishwasher, you won’t have to worry about overuse. So stock up on this one as well!
