How to Save Money on Coconut Oil
Today, Jess is sharing her tips on how to save money on coconut oil.
Coconut oil is something that has been used for years in the “crunchy” world. However, it’s becoming more and more popular as the days go on. If there’s one thing you notice about coconut oil, it’s the price. It is quite expensive, but there are some ways to save, so stay tuned.
One of the best and cheapest places to find coconut oil is on Amazon. You can even get the organic type of coconut oil for a reasonable price. One thing to remember about coconut oil is that a little bit goes a long way. I think I’ve had the same tub for almost 6 months now!
I have found some of the most inexpensive tubs of coconut oil at Aldi. They get great deals on bulk items and are able to deliver those prices to their customers. I’m not sure how often Aldi has coconut oil, but it’s something to keep an eye out for when you do your weekly shopping. Also be sure to check out other discount stores like Grocery Outlet Bargain Market if you live in the region it’s stores are located. I have gotten it as low as $4.00 for a 16 oz jar.
Trader Joe’s has a private brand of their coconut oil and it is usually the lowest at the smaller size if that is what you are looking for. It runs about $6 a jar.
Use it for Everything
If you’re using coconut oil for everything, then you don’t need to “waste” money on other household items. When I say you can use coconut oil for everything, I’m not exaggerating. You can use it for a moisturizer, for cream in your coffee, and even to brush your teeth. Coconut oil is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, so it’s a great product to use on your body and around the house. (for a list of some ways you can use it, check out my post on Coconut Oil Uses)
Buy in Bulk
Anything you can buy in bulk will help you save money. When you head to Sam’s Club or any other big box retailer, look for coconut in bulk. Buying coconut oil at $15 a pop can get expensive. See if you can’t land two huge containers for under $25. Looking for that special deal will help you save a ton of money on coconut oil over time.
