    What doesn’t spill, spoils before you can use that much. Well, if you also use it for skin lotion that’ll help.

    Those big box stores always cause waste.

    No, people who shop there do dumb things that cause waste.

    I agree. I don’t buy in bulk a lot, but if I DO, I know that it is something I can keep fresh while using it and WILL actually USE that amount. I have purchased 15# of ground cinnamon because I like to use it a lot and sealed tightly in a dark cabinet it stores well. and 25# of almond flour more recently (storage ditto) and it makes gluten free crackers that are actually YUMMY! (at grocery stores, 1#=$11, in bulk it was less than $5 per #).

    I agree. I like to put my flours, grains and legumes in the freezer but that’s because I live alone and have lots of extra room. I also live in Arizona where it’s REALLY dry so freezing makes sense.

    Oh yes it does spoil. After a few months it starts to smell like paint.

    I once saw a box of 60 condoms at a Sam’s Club. Either they have a long shelf life, or someone has a pretty active love life!!!!

    I shop at Sam’s Club but I have 3 teen boys in the house so nothing lasts too long at all.

    It will spoil if it’s a cheap brand, yes.

    I buy kleenex, toilet paper, laundry detergent, garbage bags, stuff like that in bulk at the grocery store when it’s good prices or it’s on sale and I have a coupon too. Buy bulk I guess I should say the size on sale, not huge packages like those clubs offer.

    And, poor Claire, cleaning up olive oil is a a pain in the butt. I once dropped a 17 ounce bottle of Pompeian on the floor, and it broke, and what a mess! Band new bottle too!

    Yes, we have a (smaller) bottle and use a funnel to pour from the big bottle to the smaller bottle. It never spoils even though we’re just two people, though we do use it often

    When I was in Pharmacy school (I graduated in 1956!), I had a professor who claimed you weren’t a pharmacist until you could pour from a gallon bottle into a thimble and not spill a drop! I was never quite THAT good but I could and still can pour pretty darned precisely.
