Next time you go to Costco or Sam's Club, think twice before you stock your cart with these products.

Beware! According to, nuts have a very short shelf life and usually expire within two months. So unless you're an avid nut eater, this may be not the smartest bulk buy.

Buying guilty pleasures in bulk only leads to eating in bulk! You may splurge on two candy bars if you see a "two for a dollar" deal, but springing for the "12 candy bars for $12" deal won't be good for your wallet or waistline.

While buying paper towels in bulk will save money, we often forget to think about where we'll put those rolls (and rolls, and rolls) once we get home. Be mindful of your cabinet space before you go wild in the paper-product aisle.

I don’t see anything wrong with buying paper products (toliet paper, napkins, paper towels, kleenex) in bulk. It’s something you’ll always use and I certainly would not forget where I put it.

One thing I learned not to buy in too much bulk was diapers. My daughter grew out of her diapers before she finished the box. LOL!
