List Day: My 6 Worst Bulk Purchases

  1. 12 Fresh Bagels: A dozen soft, fresh bagels may seem like a wonderful deal, but you're guaranteed to lose half to mold before you have a chance to eat them at a regular pace.

  2. 6-Pack of Aluminum Foil: I use tin foil for everything, from lining pans to reheating leftovers in the toaster oven, so this seemed like a worthwhile purchase. Six years later, I still had four rolls left.

  3. 300 Butterfly Clips: Unless you're a professor making hard-copy packets for a bunch of college students, these will sit in your drawer for years until you throw them out yourself.

  4. 200 Styrofoam Bowls: These are great for easy-cleanup of all those soups you make for your big dinner parties... which is essentially just Cheese Soup... which you make once a year at Thanksgiving... and which you haven't made since 2012.

  5. 1 Bottle of Excedrin Migraine: You may have the perception that you get a lot of migraines, but you're not likely to have 500 before the pills expire. If you do, you should probably see a doctor.

  6. 500 Blank CD-Rs: "I'm gonna burn so many music CDs! What's an iPod?"
