Why Didn't I Think Of This Sooner

We use soy sauce for a lot of things.

$2.99 for 15oz.  19.9¢ per ounce.

A gallon is $22.21.  17.4¢ per ounce.

It adds up!


  1. Compare your liquor prices. Now complain!

  2. Eventually.

    Just keep that empty 15oz to refill from your gallon.

    And check the local oriental market, the price might be cheaper than you can find in a 'normal' store.

    I prefer the low-salt Kikkoman myself.

  3. If I had the money, and storage space I'd need, I'd want to stock up on about a year's worth of most foods (not bread or other things that need to be bought fresh) at the beginning of the year, at wholesale prices. Back when I lived at 1919 Cottrell, we had a big chest freezer down in the lower basement and my dad would buy a quarter or a half a beef at the locker, at much lower prices than we'd have paid at a store, and then we'd freeze most of it.

  4. Used to buy Yamasa by the gallon, for the same reasons.

    Now, not so much.
