      Hi,
      I have to add my 2¢ here. There are 2 of us, DH and self. We
      always
      but 24 packs of T paper.

      If we have to we could put it in a spare
      closet. When it is on sale, why not? it won’t spoil!

      dh is getting
      ketchup by the gallon. it will go in bottles in the refrig. or maybe
      the freezer.

      so many things can be frozen, or stored somehow that it
      does make sense. we shop and share with another couple. i saw the
      article below, and while i agreee that 25 boxes of foil would be
      rediculous, I disagree with thatarticle, to a point.

      Will this go bad before I can use it? The two-gallon jar of
      spaghetti sauce is perishable once opened, so ask yourself whether
      you can stand to have pasta every night until it’s gone.

      There’s nothing worse than having to
      store your 24-roll pack of toilet paper in the living room because
      there’s no room under the bathroom sink.
      d.. Is the quality good enough that I will enjoy using this
      product? For example, some inexpensive paper towels you can buy in
      bulk are flimsier and make cleaning up more of a headache.

      Make sure
      you like the product you’re getting.

      deodorant, film, toilet paper, beer, laundry detergent, coffee beans –
      – things that won’t go bad and don’t take up too much space. If you
      limit your bulk shopping to these nonperishables, you’ll save money
      and time because you won’t have to replace them as often.
