Where

On a normal pop run, you will likely be going to Real Canadian Wholesale Club As far as we know, it has the best normal prices around unless someone has a Costco Card.

What

Generally, buying ~$200 worth of pop will last the CSC about half a term or less, especially shortened at the beginning when we give out pop to new members.

Assuming you're buying $200 of pop, the author's suggestion is: (please modify according to patterns noticed and your intuition)

  • 5 x 24-pack Coca-Cola (@ $7.99 ea.) (Note: apparently people really like Coke over Pepsi)
  • 5 x 24-pack Dr. Pepper (@ $7.99 ea.)
  • 1 x 24-pack Canada Dry (@ $7.99 ea.)
  • 1 x 24-pack 7up/Sprite (@ $7.99 ea.) (Note: likely one will be cheaper by a dollar, buy it)
  • 2 x 24-pack Barq's (@ $7.99 ea.) (Note: Barq's is the only one with Caffeine, buy it)
  • 3 x 24-pack Rainbow Pk (@ $7.99 ea.) (Note: someone has specified they want more Soda, I increased ratio, feel free to drop one)
  • 1 x 24-pack Five Alive (@ $10.99 ea.?) (Note: Just some juice-like canned pop)
  • 1 x 24-pack Nestea (@ $11.99 ea.)
  • 3 x 9-pack Sunlike (@ $3.?? ea.) (Note: Sunlike or Fairlee is cheapest for juice, normal deal is at 3 plus packs bought, and I'll note later which one is cheaper per bottle (not that it matters much since it's a difference of like a cent))
  • 3 Arizona Green Tea (large cans)
  • 2 Arizona Iced Tea (large cans)
  • 2 x 24-pack V8

Prices no longer accurate -- need to be adjusted.

If you don't think this can fit in the back seat of your car, it can, trust me, I drive a small car. Trunk or front seat space is nice to have though.

Also, we've started getting candy and chips. Update needed.
