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?
