Bulk buying is a kind of controversial topic. It seems to be more prevalent in the United States, and I totally understand the points made against it. No one really needs ten gallons of mayonnaise. However, there are benefits to buying certain items in bulk. Rather than being greedy, buying these things in bulk purchases can ultimately save time and money. Here are 7 purchases that might surprise you.

Paper towels, napkins, printer paper, and the most important paper product: toilet paper. It makes sense to buy these items in bulk, because you always need them. If you have children in school or go to school yourself, you can even add notebooks onto that last. With paper towels and toilet paper, especially, you will save lots of time and money. Wouldn’t it be nice not to have to run out to the store due to an unpleasant, revealing trip to the bathroom?
