    We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us what items they buy in bulk and think you should too. Here are some of their responses!

    1. Toilet roll

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    By far the most popular response, probably because it's the last thing anyone wants to run out of.

    "Toilet paper, god bless."

    jenisist

    Price: £27.00 for 72 rolls.

    2. Lightbulbs

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    LED lightbulbs are energy-saving and last longer than traditional bulbs but they're still more cost-effective when purchased in a large pack instead of individually. Why not replace all your household bulbs in one go?

    "Lightbulbs... they never go off!"

    crofts88

    Price: £14.99 for a pack of 10.

    3. Razor blade refills

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Keep your blades close and your shave closer with these five-blade razor cartridges.

    Price: £18.50 for a pack of 10.

    4. Washing up liquid

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    A household staple becomes much more economical and environmentally friendly when you buy the big jug and refill your smaller bottles. This plant-based, cruelty-free Ecover washing up liquid is extra green compared to your standard dish detergent.

    karip8

    Price: £15.30 for a 5L bottle.

    5. Laundry capsules

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Laundry is an inevitable part of adulthood but there's nothing worse than putting a load in the washer and finding yourself out of detergent. These highly-rated 3-in-1 washing capsules make the whole process a little bit easier and are available in a mega pack that'll last you for 114 washes.

    karip8

    Price: £21.29 for 114 capsules.

    6. Fabric softener

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Laundry capsules and fabric softener go hand in hand so if you're buying one in bulk, you'd better get the other too!

    icklebecka2

    Price: £10.00 for a 5L bottle.

    7. Tea bags

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    "I also have an Amazon monthly subscription for my favourite tea, in a large quantity. I think I drink too much tea..."

    Price: £10.47 for 100.

    10. Bamboo toothbrushes

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    leighaashleym

    Price: £11.78 for a pack of eight.

    11. Toothpaste

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Squeezing out the last bit at the end of your tube is even more satisfying when you know you've got a replacement tube ready. Keep your teeth and breath fresh with a bumper pack of Colgate.

    alyssag4d8bf934c

    Price: £12.89 for 12 tubes.

    12. Dog food

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Dry dog food is definitely more practical to buy in large quantities, especially if your pup is a picky eater or is on a special diet. Compare the prices between 2kg and 10kg of the same food and you'll routinely find that the big bag is much cheaper per kilo! Try this grain free Pooch & Mutt kibble if your dog has digestion issues.

    Price: £19.99 for four boxes.

    15. Spray deodorant

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    "Deodorant. It always ruins my day when I run out of deodorant but you can't run out if you have 20 more cans of it."

    canunotmywaywardson

    Price: £14.70 for a pack of six.

    16. Shower gel

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    "Body wash!! I buy it in bulk because I tend to use a lot on my loofah, and so that other people who visit can use it if they need to."

    kneeongravestones

    Price: £9.00 - £18.00 for six bottles, depending on fragrance.

    17. Shampoo

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    "Shampoo and conditioner. I will always look to either buy the large bottles or buy a bunch when it's on sale. The worst thing is running out and realising just as you're about to wash your hair, or mid-wash and having to use a different product."

    bethcox93

    Price: £10.60 for four bottles.

    18. A surprising multipurpose cleaner

    Amazong / Via amazon.co.uk, Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Although it's not necessarily the first cleaning product to come to mind, the top result on Amazon for bulk cleaning products is Golden Swan white vinegar, which comes in a pack of four 5L bottles. You can use this vinegar in the kitchen for cooking and pickling and use it as an environmentally friendly cleaning agent – vinegar is particularly good for removing limescale from glass and metal surfaces. You can even, as some of the 1,500+ commenters on this 4.7 star-rated product note, use it to make a non-toxic weed killer.

    stephaniea4b01f3414

    Price: £13.49 for four bottles.

    19. Bin liners

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Having an opinion on the relative merits of specific brands and styles of bin bags is a true sign of adulthood. It's genuinely surprising how difficult it is to find good, strong bags that won't tear or leak while you're taking out the bins, so once you've found The Ones, you'll definitely want to buy them in bulk! These 50L bin bags have a 4.7 star rating and customers praise them for being strong, durable, and great value.

    courtneyjewellb

    Price: £24.99 for 115 bags.

    20. Tinned tomatoes

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Non-perishable items and tinned food in general are great to buy in bulk but cans of tomatoes deserve a special shoutout. Get a dozen tins of these Biona Organic chopped tomatoes and you'll have the base for a plethora of dishes from various world cuisines!

    questionauthority

    Price: £12.39 for a pack of 12.

    21. Olive oil

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Another kitchen staple, and one that goes very well with tinned tomatoes, is olive oil. This Greek extra virgin olive oil has a 4.8 star rating and comes in 3L and 5L options.
