If the thought of stepping into a big box store is not convenient, you might stop by your local drug store to grab a few items. Often that quick trip may save time but not necessarily money. Good Housekeeping shares five items you shouldn’t buy at drugstores.

Toilet Paper

According to the Good Housekeeping Institute Textiles Lab, toilet paper is always cheaper when buying in bulk. They also point out that buying generic brands may not be the right choice, either. “Though some people may think it’s cheaper to buy a store brand toilet paper, most drug store-branded toilet paper was actually more expensive than other brands available in bulk sizes in our recent test.” explains Senior Textiles Analyst Lexie Sachs. Try shopping at Costco or on Amazon instead.


Because you always seem to run out at the worse times. However, Good Housekeeping says it’s also better to buy in bulk.
