12 Items You Should Always Buy in Bulk
NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU try to trim your budget, there are items you can't avoid buying like groceries and household cleaning supplies. Considering that prices for food are expected to increase between 2.5% and 3.5%, though, as reported by the 2020 Food Price Outlook survey from the USDA, it’s more important than ever to stretch your shopping dollars.
One easy way to save on daily essentials is to buy in bulk, something many Americans are already doing. In fact, the Wholesale Clubs: Shopper Attitudes and Behavior study conducted by Field Agent found that the top five items consumers buy from warehouse clubs like Costco, Sam’s Club and BJ's Wholesale Club are toilet paper and paper towels, salty snacks, laundry and dishwashing supplies, and packaged meat. However, Joanie Demer, co-founder of The Krazy Coupon Lady, a deal and coupon site, cautions consumers to beware of such warehouse retailers.
