5 Tips for Buying Groceries in Bulk


2
Know What to Buy

There aren't too many hard-and-fast rules about what's best to buy in bulk -- a lot of it has to do with what your family uses the most. Everyday nonfood items like paper towels, toilet paper, toothpaste and shampoo are usually good bets, as are your favorite foods (as long as they freeze well and don't spoil easily). If you see a great deal on something you're confident you'll use -- or you know you can store -- go for it.
