Three Things Thursday: Three Things I Started Buying in "Bulk"


I'm not really a Costco/Sam's Club kinda girl.  I don't really feel the need to stock-up on most items.  It has come to my attention lately that there are a few things that I can save some big bucks on just by buying the bigger sizes. 

1.  Minced Garlic--Sometimes it's a pain to peel fresh garlic.  I can find this huge jar that sells in regular stores for $9 at Ollie's for only $3.  It's almost always there!

2. Maple Flavoring- I have made our syrup for several years now.  I usually buy this 2 oz. bottle of Mapleine at Walmart for $3-4.  They stopped selling that brand, so I got on Amazon and read a few reviews.  I realized how much I'd been over-spending on that 2 oz. bottle.  These TWO 16 oz. bottles were $25.  So, I saved a good deal, buying in bulk. The 2 oz. bottle lasted forever.  I may never have to buy syrup flavor ever again.

3.  Yeast- I have bought my yeast from Kroger for years now.  Bread machine yeast comes in these jars that are about $4 a piece for 4 oz.  I was looking at a recipe on another blog for Dutch Oven No Knead Bread  and found out that King Arthur flour sold these 1 lb. packages of yeast.  I decided to go with Amazon for the free shipping, but ended up paying only $7--4 jars worth for half the price!

What things do you buy in bulk to save money? 

Head on over to Heidi's Head for more Three Things Thursday!

  1. Awesome! Some things it really does pay to buy in bulk! I didn't realize Ollie's was so widespread - I thought it was a PA thing!
