I was the oldest of four children, and it was no secret that we went through a lot of toilet paper. We lived at least 25 minutes (on a sunny day) outside of town on the edge of a mining camp. There were no stores that were just minutes away when we ran out of things, which happened more frequently than it should. When we ran out of toilet paper, my mom would send me to our neighbors house to borrow a roll. If that wasn’t embarrassing enough to a preteen girl, the boy who lived in that house was my classmate. I spent half my school day worried he was going to spill the beans to our classmates about how frequently we ran out of toilet paper. I felt like I might be scarred for life, and maybe it did, but not in a bad way. I stock pile toilet paper. I chose the best brands from reading product reviews and my laundry room closet is stacked with rolls of paper goods because I have an overwhelming fear of running out. As a southerner, I don’t mind borrowing the occasional cup of sugar, but I won’t be asking for anymore toilet paper if I can help it. I frequently buy items in bulk, especially when they’re on sale. April is when you should head to Walmart for the Stock Up and Save Event. Here is my list of a few best items to buy in bulk and when to buy them.
During the #StockUpSave event at Walmart, you can find some good deals on some of your favorite and trusted brands such as:
- Bounty Select-A-Size 12-Pack Mega Roll
- Tide 100 oz. Original HE Liquid Laundry Detergent
- Pampers Swaddlers Huge Box
- Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Shampoo, 23.7 oz.
- Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Conditioner, 23.7 oz.
- Febreze Air Effects Linen & Sky
- Dawn Original 75 oz.
- Gillette MACH3 Sensitive Disposable 3-Pack
- Venus Sensitive Disposable 3-Pack
- Gain 100 oz. Original Liquid Laundry Detergent
- Charmin Ultra Strong 36 Double-Roll Pack
- Crest Pro-Health Advanced Toothpaste
Those deals are even better when they’re paired with coupons. There’s currently an Ibotta Rewards offer for select P&G products. It’s easy enough to use, you can download the app and start saving with your next purchase.
Here are a few rules to follow before your next bulk buying shopping trip:
- Don’t buy more than what you have room to safely store.
- Don’t buy items in bulk that are perishable (unless it’s something you plan to can or preserve).
- Non-essential items that you don’t use frequently.
Items such as the following can be stored easily and are regularly used by a typical household:
- Dishwashing detergent
- Laundry detergent
- Paper towels
- Toilet Paper
Even if you don’t like using the large bottles of shampoo and conditioner in the shower, you can use them to refill smaller bottles. The same principle applies to dishwashing detergent. The price per ounce is generally cheaper when buying in bulk.
Do you buy any products in bulk? It’s such a timesaver and I don’t have to go shopping as frequently. If you haven’t used the Ibotta app before, it’s a great moneysaving resource. You should also check out the Walmart #StockUpSave Facebook event for reminders throughout the month about money saving deals.
