According to, there are five things you should always buy in bulk. The site also said that warehouse clubs and stores that require annual membership fees are the best places to find the deals.

Number one on the list, toilet paper.  It doesn't go bad, you're always going to need it and you use it all the time. Just make sure you have room for it in your house.

Number two, bottled water. It's not always the greenest choice, but rather than buy individual bottles at Wal-Mart for $1.50 each, you could score a 12-pack of Propel flavored water for $6. also said that diapers are on the list of things you should always buy in bulk. Just make sure you have room to store them in your home.
