I'm not super crazy about bulk shopping. I have see those 'extreme coupon' people on TV who have about 30,000 rolls of paper towels and enough canned goods to feed the neighborhood for six years, and I have to shake my head. Sure. I'd love to be trapped at their house during the Zombie Apocalypse, but living like that? Nuh-uh.
That being said, we do have a membership to BJ's Wholesale Club. While I have no desire for a 20 lb jar of mustard, I have found it helpful to buy some things in bulk - like diapers, peanut butter, jelly, and especially olive oil.
The bottle on the left cost about $7. The bottle on the right cost about $21. We've refilled the bottle on the left from the bottle on the right about 5 times.
I love this. It means that I have good quality olive oil on hand for things like pizza, vapor rub,
and of course, experimental beauty treatments.
The only trick is to fill the bottle VERY SLOWLY. Otherwise, you are likely to have to grab some spray cleaner and a wash cloth to clean your table.
I love links.
