The Best Grocery Items to Buy in Bulk

To buy in bulk or not to buy in bulk? That’s the question for many frugal grocery shoppers who want to save a few bucks, but don’t want to land on an episode of Hoarders.

According to a Fox Business report, here are six items that experts recommend purchasing in bulk.

  • Paper products: Toilet paper, napkins and similar products are cheaper in bulk. Since there’s no expiration date, you don’t have to worry about them spoiling in your pantry.
  • Vitamins and medicines: Good deals on vitamins and over-the-counter meds can be found at warehouse stores. Many popular drugstores also offer coupons and discounts on these items.
  • Wine: Since wine gets better with age, it’s a good idea to pick up several bottles of your favorite brand when it’s on sale.
  • Meat: Obviously, meat has a short (refrigerated) shelf life. But if you have the freezer space, you may want to take advantage of your grocer’s next weekly meat sale.
  • Packaged foods: If your store is running a special on canned goods, cereal and other packaged items, you might want to stock up, especially if you have coupons.
  • Batteries: You never know when a battery will die. So when they’re on sale, buy…buy…buy.
