There are few horrors quite like reaching for a new roll of toilet paper and finding not a single sheet left. And while you could argue with your husband over whose turn it was to pick up more, a better solution would be to make sure you're always fully stocked with one of the best bulk buys on Amazon—ideally with a subscription to one of the site's subscribe and save options—so you can worry less and carry on without any lingering passive aggressiveness.

You can pick up everything from razors and notebooks to sparkling water in bulk, saving yourself time, aggravation and money in the long run, as bulk items are typically cheaper per item—something that's especially useful in the face of inflation. Every penny counts!

How to Shop in Bulk

When it comes to choosing the best bulk items, it's better to go with high-quality items that will last for a while in storage. Be mindful of expiration dates when buying food items en masse, and be realistic about how long it will feasibly take you to get through all that red curry paste.

If an item is in high demand, it will likely be more expensive per item. In this case, you’ll be better off buying fewer of these items, or wait to buy them in larger quantities when they’re more readily available, thus lower in price.

How We Chose the Best Bulk Buys on Amazon

We’ve chosen tried-and-true bulk buys that our editors are fans of from companies that have a good reputation of avoiding price gouging (something we’ve seen before with paper shortages). 

Here are our top recs for the best bulk purchases on Amazon that may help you feel a little more in control of your life.

Best K-Cups in Bulk

1. Cameron's Coffee K-Cups, 72-Count

Cameron's Coffee

  • Why We Love It: Eco-friendly, real coffee filters

Most K-cups are a bit wasteful, but these eco-friendly options are entirely compostable. Better yet, they feature a real coffee filter, so you'll get all the flavor you'd expect from a regular cup of joe. This box of 72 is full of French Roast, but other flavors, like Breakfast Blend, Donut Shot and Vanilla Hazelnut, are available in different quantities.

  • Why We Love It: Organic, sustainable, unscented

With warnings of a tampon shortage, you might be worried about running out of provisions when Aunt Flo comes to town. This 80-pack of 100 percent organic cotton tampons with a BPA-free plastic applicator should keep you covered (and informed about what you're putting in your body) for a while. The pocket size makes grabbing one easy, and each flow size offers 360-degree leak protection.

  • Why We Love It: Minimalist, affordable

A dull blade is never a good time in the shower, especially around your bikini line. With a 12-pack of Joy’s popular razor blades, you’re less likely to be caught without a fresh one in your time of need. Each one features five sharp blades and a lubricant strip, so you can get a fresh shave, every time—one reviewer said these "literally changed [her] life." (Psst: If you haven't picked up the base yet, try this kit instead, which includes the handle.)

  • Why We Love It: Large rolls, absorbent

You can seriously never have too many paper towels. These extra-large rolls, which come 16 to a pack, already pack a lot of paper, but the smaller, quick-size sheets mean you can stretch them even further. Coupled with Bounty’s coveted absorbency—the company claims to offer double that of competitors—you won’t be running out anytime soon. It's also committed to regrowing two trees for every one used.

Best Bulk Cleaning Wipes

5. Lysol Disinfectant Wipes, 4-Pack

Lysol

  • Why We Love It: Disinfects COVID-19 germs, fresh scent

With viruses seemingly lurking around corner, it’s always nice to have some disinfecting wipes on hand. This four-pack comes with 320 wipes and claims to kill 99.9 percent of viruses and bacteria, including the dreaded COVID-19. The material of the wipes themselves is strong, too (three times stronger than a paper towel, according to Lysol), so you’ll be able to scrub down those deeper messes.

Best Bulk Facial Tissues

6. Kleenex Ultra-Soft Facial Tissues, 8 Boxes

Kleenex

  • Why We Love It: Absorbent, soft, pretty boxes

With a triple-layer base, these tissues hold up to even the toughest snot, but offer soothing softness as well (aka, no chapped noses here). The flat boxes also come in some appealing designs for your bathroom, which is a good thing, considering you'll have 960 tissues to go through before you change out all eight.

Best Bulk N95 Masks

7. Benehal N95 Face Masks, 50 Pack

Benehal

  • Why We Love It: Multi-layered, NIOSH-certified

As we head into winter weather, stocking up on N95 masks is a good idea. These N95 masks, which are manufactured by Suzhou Sanical Protective Product Manufacturing Company, Ltd., are NIOSH-approved, offering at least 95 percent filtration against particles, but they also contour to your head shape for a secure and safe fit. This pack of 50 will last you awhile, as well.

  • Why We Love It: Cotton, basic, moderate coverage

Somehow, underwear is one of those things that (unfortunately) always seems to disappear—or get a little too low before laundry day. These neutral bikini briefs aren’t sultry by any means, but they'll keep you moderately covered. The lightweight jersey cotton blend has plenty of stretch and you’ll be happy to have them tucked in your underwear drawer. With ten to a pack, you also won't be devastated if a few get ruined come that time of the month.

  • Why We Love It: Two sizes, ten-year shelf life, reliable

While AA batteries are typically easy to find lying around the house, AAA never seems to turn up. This 48 battery pack has 24 of each, so you you'll always be able to power up your devices. They also reportedly have an impressive ten-year shelf life, so you can be confident you’ll have some juice when that old flashlight dies, no matter how long they've been in your closet.

Best Flushable Wipes in Bulk

10. Dude Wipes Flushable Wipes, 18-Pack

Dude Wipes

  • Why We Love It: Plant-based, flushable, unscented

Take it from us: Dude Wipes aren't just for dudes. These masculine-sounding wipes are actually good for all sorts of things, from disinfecting the bathroom to feeling fresh down there. Made of plant materials, they're sewer and septic-safe and begin to break down as soon as they're flushed. The packs themselves are also easy to pack in a purse or briefcase.

Best Notebooks in Bulk

11. Jekkis Mini Notebooks, 48-Pack

Jekkis

  • Why We Love It: Colorful, portable, help keep you organized

Having a small notebook to jot down every last thought can be a great forget-me-not. And with 48 of them on hand, you can truly scatter them anywhere you need, so you never forget to journal. This colorful bulk pack is even pocket-book sized, making them easy to tote around. Each ruled notebooks comes with 24 sheets, which is just enough to hold your thoughts on any given day.

  • Why We Love It: Fluoride, minty fresh, fights cavities

With a large pack of toothpaste, you likely won’t have to worry about trying to squish that last pea-sized drop from your near-tube until next year. This anti-cavity option from Colgate has a minty-fresh feeling and is made with active fluoride to help fight cavities. It's also got a seal of approval from the American Dental Association.

Best Bulk Whitening Strips

13. Crest 3D Whitestrips, 22-Count

Crest

  • Why We Love It: 22 applications, removes stains, noticeable results

Toothpaste alone won’t keep your pearly whites, well, pearly white, and using whitening strips is a commitment. That’s why this 22-count, which includes 44 strips in total, from Crest is a good idea: It will help you keep up with a regular whitening schedule. Just use them for 30 minutes per day, and you'll reportedly see up to 14 years of tooth stains start to vanish in just three days.

Best Bulk Drink

14. Guayaki Yerba Mate Beverage, 12-Pack

Guayaki

  • Why We Love It: Natural, fizzy, caffeinated 

Senior Editor Dana Dickey loves Yerba Mate for its natural caffeination and unique flavors. Plus, it's a USDA organic, gluten-free product from a Certified B-Corp and Fair Trade company. When you buy it in bulk, you can count on making your taste buds happy and your body more hydrated.

Best Bulk Popcorn

15. Jiffy Pop Butter Popcorn, 5-Pack

Jiffy Pop

  • Why We Love It: Fun, tasty, easy to make

Popcorn is one of the best late night snacks, but for that full movie theater feel, you’re going to want Jiffy Pop. A favorite of Fashion Editor Abby Hepworth's, it's easy to heat over a stovetop (or a campfire) and watch it pop, pop, pop! It tastes great, and you’ll be happy to have a few extras on hand for family movie night.

Best Bulk Curry Paste

16. Maesri Variety Curry Paste, 8-Pack

Maesri

  • Why We Love It: Good flavor, concentrated, high quality

If you’re cooking up the wazoo, it’s a good idea to stock up on some reliable non-perishables—like curry paste. It’s one of those ingredients that you don’t realize you need until you find yourself without it, so it’s nice to have lurking in your pantry. Our Senior Food Editor Katherine Gillen is obsessed with this brand in particular, which makes it easy to whip up a meal with some coconut milk.

Best Bulk Shampoo

17. Tea Tree Special Shampoo

Tea Tree

  • Why We Love It: Deep-cleaning, natural, refreshing

The less often you have to buy shampoo, the better. This 33.8-ounce bottle is one you’ll be happy to have for months, as it offers a deep clean and uses natural ingredients, like natural tea tree oil, peppermint and lavender. It’s clarifying, so you can use it to keep your locks fresh in between your normal shampoos, or, if you have an oily scalp, you can use it every day, like Commerce Director Nicole Briese. It's also paraben-free, vegan and color-safe.

Best Bulk Conditioner

18. Biolage Ultra Hydra Source Conditioning Balm

Biolage

  • Why We Love It: Hydrating, frizz-fighting

Most of us tend to go through conditioner in the shower the fastest, which is why it’s nice to have a larger amount to start with. This one from Biolage does wonders for dry stands and is silicone-free and vegan. Many fans point to how their frizz seriously decreased after using it, which is always a win in our books.

  • Why We Love It: Sustainable, space-saving, good smell

Instead of stocking up on a bunch of bottles of hand soap, keep these space-saving pod refills on hand, like Executive Editor Candace Davison. It works like this: Fill a bottle with water and drop in one of the refill tablets before giving it a good shake. Voila! You have hand soap. It produces way less waste than plastic bottles, and it has a delightful iris agave scent, too.

Best Bulk Dishwasher Pods

20. Cascade Platinum Dishwasher Pods, 62-Count

Cascade

  • Why We Love It: Grease-fighting, convenient

These Cascade pods help to simplify your dishwashing routine. Just pop in a pod, kick back and let your machine do the dirty work. It's one of the few brands that actually works to cut through grease. They'll also help you skip the pre-wash cycle (which, PS, wastes a lot of water), and they've got a fresh scent, too. No wonder they're our favorite!
