The One Thing Cooking Pros Buy at Walmart (and You Should Too)

Zuzanna Ploch/Stockfood USA

If you struggle to find a place in your home to stash your weekly grocery shopping, let alone extra goods, the thought of buying in bulk at Walmart might seem crazy. But if you've been avoiding the discount supermarket, the food and shopping experts at Cooking Light suggest you've been missing out on one particular smart buy: oil.

According to the CL team, cooking oil is the one "healthy—yet extremely affordable—item you can and should buy at Walmart." Why? Oil varieties like olive, avocado, and coconut oil are notoriously expensive but used in recipes on repeat, meaning they're worth buying in bulk. If you buy nothing else, these are the three oils worth adding to your cart.

The exact same amount of avocado oil will cost you double the price at Whole Foods.

Save $4 by getting this chic olive oil in bulk at Walmart.

A chef-size 1400-milliliter bottle costs $16 while a 750-milliliter bottle costs $18 at Whole Foods.
