I don't have a Costco (sadface) so I was buying the pure GV olive oil from Walmart. I recently made a big order at Soaper's Choice, so I threw in 7lbs of Pomace OO. At $2.20 per pound it's a pretty good deal.

I also use Soapers Choice. The price cannot be beat even with shipping costs. Since the organic olive oil is only a few dollars more per 35lb. box, I order it. I get almost all of my soaping oils from this vendor.

I get mine from Smart and Final or Costco. They always seem to have good prices, in the size that I use.

Also adding in Walmart - the gallon of extra virgin is the cheapest on the shelf.

I've used olive oil from various stores near me and have had any issue, even a dusty dollar store bottle worked fine (from what I remember). While you're still figuring out best prices in the long run, most grocery store oils work as expected so you can still keep soaping

I just checked out Soaper's Choice... I have no freaking idea that there was so many different Oils out there that you could use in soap. Like, Good Golly!
