I grew up in a household with a basement that basically served as a massive pantry. We never really ran out of anything and we knew that in any emergency situation, we would be good to go for a minimum of two months.
We had one room in particular that was lined with floor-to-ceiling shelves, loaded with everything from toilet paper to canned soup, bed sheets to fruit snacks, and everything in between. My mom was the queen of deals and knew the value of saving money by buying in bulk.
Since moving out of the house and into the city, I've adopted her habits and learned that I can easily save hundreds of dollars by purchasing products in larger amounts. Initially, I had the same concern as many of my friends - how am I going to store all of this in my already-too-small apartment? In all honesty, this was a concern that never came to fruition thanks to some storage hacks I learned from my Insider Picks coworker, Mara.
There are definitely goods that are best purchased in smaller batches like produce, skincare, or tech gadgets, but there are tons of things on the internet that have a limitless shelf life - good news for your ever-dwindling budget.
You might have your go-to store for finding bulk deals, but I discovered that each site varies in what types of products they stock and the price at which they stock them. In other words, to find the best sales, you might have to browse multiple sites before finding the best bang for your buck - and in my opinion, spending a few more minutes to keep some change in my pocket is beyond worth the effort.
I encountered major price discounts on Jet, Amazon, Walmart, and Boxed - most of which offer free or discounted shipping (particularly if you have a Prime membership). Whether you're in need of a quick and simple breakfast option, or a year supply of Ibuprofen, you're sure to find something that can be stocked in that unused drawer.
