    21 Of The Best Things To Buy In Bulk On Amazon

    You're going to buy it again anyway, might as well buy it in bulk for less!

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A pack of 72 unscented tampons for your time of the month, month after month. Get a bulk pack so you're not scrambling to the store every 28 days.


    Promising review: "The Tampax Pearl tampons have been my favorite for years. The biggest plus is that they do not pinch. I'm already shedding my insides, I don't need extra pain!" —Vangie

    Price: $13.98

    2. A 40 pack of AA batteries, because when that random remote dies, you'll spend an hour hunting down a fresh set! Not anymore! Keep these in a drawer for when you'll need them most.

    Promising review: "I go thru AA batteries like crazy and find the price outrageous, even at discount stores. I had never thought of checking the price on Amazon and almost passed out when I saw the difference. I've been getting robbed! These are the SAME EXACT batteries I purchase in the store for 1/4 of the price!" —Fashion Ragazza

    Price: $25.99 (available in a pack of 80).

    3. A 100-count care package of snacks and candies for your very own pantry or any college kids you know that might want a care box around finals week.

    Promising review: "My two teenagers (15 & 18) with huge appetites loved this box full of goodies! Once they received the box, they ripped into it before I even got home from work. It was nice to see the smiles on their faces, when I came in. They have friends coming over all the time, too, so this should keep everyone snack-happy for a while. Thanks, for a brilliant idea on a single-mom budget." —Elizabeth

    Price: $56.95

    4. A pack of six Banza Chickpea Pasta boxes to give you a high in protein, gluten free option for Italian dinner nights.

    Promising review: "Banza is the real deal. I had been on the hunt for a healthier pasta that didn't leave me feeling as sluggish as normal pasta, but after trying every brand out there I was losing hope of finding a worthy replacement. They all had earthy tastes, odd textures, or couldn't hold their own in traditional pasta dishes. Then a friend of mine recommended Banza, and I haven't looked back since." —James G

    Price: $22.02

    5. While you're at it, add a six-pack of Cucina Antica gourmet pasta sauce to your cart so you can have a delicious sauce that is gluten free and contains no GMOs or preservatives.

    Promising review: "This sauce is very good. I was looking for a sauce with less sugar and sodium. This sauce was recommended on another site, so I came and found it by the case at Amazon. My wife thought I was crazy getting a case of spaghetti sauce shipped to the house, but she likes it!" —Ken

    Price: $32.72 (available in six flavors)

    6. A pack of 24 AmazonBasics washcloths that'll work for the bathroom, kitchen, gym, or anywhere else in the house where you could use them.

    Promising review: "I usually buy washcloths in a large pack at Walmart. I divide them and use them for general cleaning in the kitchen, bathroom and to clean floors. Seriously, 24 washcloths for $12ish? It's a great value." —Isabelle S.

    Price: $15.99 (available in seven colors)

    7. A bulk box of candy (335 pieces to be exact) to fill all the pillow cases that come to your door begging for something sweet this Halloween!


    It's a delish mix of Jolly Ranchers, Kit-Kats, Reese's, and Twizzlers.

    Promising review: "Ordered a couple assortment bags for my office and was so impressed with the value we received. The bags are generously sized with all our favorite candy and chocolates. With other assortment bags there's usually one candy that no one wants to eat, but these bag had just the right mix. Would definitely recommend for parties and holidays as well as it seems to be a better value than Costco, and received free shipping with Prime. It was also packed well to prevent from melting even in the middle of the summer. Will definitely order again!" —Andrea and Tore

    Price: $27.54 (available in three bulk assortments)

    8. A box of 24 Nature’s Bees Cocoa Butter Lip Balm, because we are headed into winter and weather you like it or not your lips are going to get chapped from the cold.


    Plus idk about you, but I lose my lip balm at least once a week, so this is super handy!

    Promising review: "My search is over! I've spent YEARS searching for the perfect lip balm and finally found it in this product! I've purchased every brand, every flavor, every style and have never been totally satisfied. These lip balms are very emollient, have pleasant tastes and last a long time on your lips." —Soukup

    Price: $14.95 (available in 24–96 pack)

    9. A pack of 60 Angel Soft Toilet Paper to keep in a storage closet, because you will go through it eventually I promise.


    Promising review: "Made of high quality material and is not cheap. I was able to get a better deal here on Amazon than at Target or Sams Club. This paper is listed at a fair price and is not rough. I am very selective about what I purchase and then review. Great for me so I recommend! Great buy." —Thick Hare

    Price: $25.29 (available in a pack of 48)

    Promising review: "There are by far my favorite bath bombs I've purchased, and boy, have I purchased a lot. They last a long time as far as fizzing and dissipating goes, the color is great and doesn't stain, and the aroma is light without being overpowering. They're also a great size. I've bought two boxes for myself, and sent one to my sister! Have yet to find any to beat these, even Lush." —Meg

    Price: $35.10 (available in 36 bath bombs)

    11. A 12 pack of 14oz Soylent meal replacement bottles for anyone looking for an easier way to get your meals in. With 20% of your daily vitamins and minerals per bottle, people are loving the convenience and taste!

    Promising review: "I decided to try Soylent after hearing about it on my favorite podcast, and I am so glad I did! I am a busy young professional who is moderately health obsessed.

    Price: $12.15 (available in 11 types of candies)

    13. A pack of 90 Glad kitchen bags made to hold 13 gallons of waste and designed with a drawstring to ensure a tight grip on trash cans.


    Promising review: "I like these bags so much better than all the bags I've used before. The drawstring makes it easier to deal with, and the bags stretch to prevent ripping. I like these so much that I subscribed for them to be delivered on a regular basis. I recommend this product. It is a good product for a good price." —Rose

    Price: $14.38

    14. A pack of Sensodyne Pronamel Gentle Whitening toothpaste that'll strengthen your enamel, lessening the chances of cavities and tooth sensitivity. (Use this after eating all those gummy bears!)


    Promising review: "I've been using this toothpaste for eight years and I've found that this is probably the best for decreasing sensitivity and improving enamel hardness. The whitening properties are not bad, just not as substantial as one would expect. Although, if you do wish to whiten your teeth, the compounds used to make a noticeable difference would defeat the purpose of this particular toothpaste as most whitening products increase sensitivity of teeth for a period after using." —L

    Price: $14.02

    15. A pack of eight Space Saver Bags so you can easily store winter clothes and pack for your next long vacation. Made with no vacuum or pump needed, you can pack that extra pair of jeans without question.

    Price: $19.99

    17. A pack of 24 sponges because there are few other more disgusting sensations than a old soggy dirty sponge! Ew. Throw it out and grab a fresh one from under your sink!

    Promising review: "Honestly I was expecting just some cheap sponges for this price but to my surprise, they are actually good quality! So much better than the little cheap ones I get from the grocery store. And I'm pretty sure this came with enough to last me the whole year!" —DotScott1

    Price: $12.99

    18. An excitingly large box of 800 Crayola Crayons in 16 assorted colors. Draw your hearts out!


    Promising review: "Nothing like Crayola crayons. I buy bulk crayons for the children's menu at the restaurant I work at. I usually buy whatever is the best deal at the time. These always seem to last the longest!" —Kia

    Price: $44.45 (available in 1–5 packs)

    19. A 20-pair set of low cut/no show socks for anyone who digs around in their drawer looking for a fresh pair and never can find one! (hello, me.) Buying them in bulk will save you $$ in the long run. And hey, now you can go for a long run!
