Can Buying In Bulk Save You Money?
While the amount you save depends on the item, research has shown that buying in bulk saves money! This can also help on the amount of time you spend at the store every month. It is a good idea to buy items that have a long shelf life, are non-perishable & will not go bad/expire before you can use them.
Some of the things you can consider buying in bulk are: Meats, ready-to-eat meals, canned items & anything that is non-perishable, shelf items, paper items, detergents, garbage bags, coffee, dog food/treats, diapers. These items are good to buy since they have long shelf/freezer life.
Some of the things that may not be recommended to buy in bulk are food items that may expire or go bad before you actually have time to eat them. while at first it may seem like the bigger packages of these food items are cheaper than at the grocery store, it will only be a good deal if you are able to actually eat/use them.
