The Best Bargains Under the Beams: Seven Items to Snatch at the Warehouse Store
Buying in bulk can save you an average of 30 percent off of the cost of your groceries and household needs, especially when you know what to choose.
Many of these bulk shopping stores have expanded their offerings, allowing their customers a wider range of products. Convenience and price savings are two obvious benefits of warehouse stores, and shoppers are recognizing their value. These stores are now more popular than ever.
It is easy to get caught up on the expansive aisles and want to stock up on every product on offer, but smart shoppers know the secret. They concentrate on stocking up the best bargains under the beams.
Toilet Paper: There is no getting around needing toilet paper day after day, week after week. Buying it in bulk will save you money, and the peace of mind you get knowing you won’t run out at an inconvenient moment is worth the stock up.
Dry Pasta: This food staple has a shelf life of practically forever, tastes good and can be used in a variety of dishes.
Cleaning supplies: One of the downsides of buying in bulk is that you tend to use (eat) more of something when you have a lot of it. Cleaning supplies are an exception, because, at least for most of us, any motivation to take on more cleaning is a good thing. Plus, concentrating your bulk purchases on things that are pre-measured, such as cleaning wipes or dishwasher pods, means you won’t use too much anyway.
Trash bags: You’ll always have one when you need it, and a ton of well-packaged bags don’t take up a lot of shelf space, so I’m putting this item on our must-bulk-buy list.
Batteries: Batteries are sort of like toilet paper. You usually find that you are out at the moments of highest desperation. With a long shelf life and great prices, buying your batteries in bulk makes sense.
Peanut Butter: Boasting some of the best peanut butter prices around, warehouse stores are a mecca for the school lunch set.
Ground Beef/Ground Turkey: Warehouse stores have gotten smart on packaging their ground meat. You still get the same great pricing, but now everything in packaged in one-to-two pound segments that can be separated and frozen.
