What NOT To Buy In Bulk At Costco and Sams

Let's be honest, we all love shopping at Costco and Sams. However some of the things we're guying in bulk could go bad before we have a chance to use it all. Here are some things to stay away from when shopping. 

  • Spices - It’s not that the spices will go bad soon, but they’ll probably get stale before you use them all.
  • Brown rice - Because this has more natural oils than white rice, it’s good for a long time but not forever. It could go rancid before you use it all.
  • Coffee -probably won't go bad, but coffee beans do lose flavor and aroma when they sit around for a while.
  • Flour - If it sits around too long, flour will attract and retain moisture, which is definitely not a good thing.
  • Baking powder - It will also attract moisture if not properly stored and that’s not good for something you’re planning to eventually use in stuff you're gonna eat.
  • Yeast - It gets less potent the longer it sits around after the sell-by date.
  • Cheese - This is just a bad idea overall....and freezing it doesn’t end well either.
  • Condiments - As soon as you open a bottle of ketchup or whatever, the shelf life clock starts. Just something to keep in mind when you consider buying that gallon of mustard.
  • Nuts - Natural oils in nuts can cause them to go rancid as well.
  • Oils - Yep, that natural oil thing applies here, too.
