Believe it or not, more often than not, your bulk purchases are costing you more money than you are actually saving. In all reality, there are just a few items that are worth purchasing in bulk – 15 key everyday items stand out as the best.
The problem we encounter when buying in bulk, apart from storage space, is we tend to use more of a stocked up item when we see we have so much there. Our subconscious kicks in and we tend to be more frugal when we see that bottle is close to being empty. And that deal on fresh fruit? Not so much of a deal when you are throwing out the rotten remains – as you’ve either become sick of eating the same thing, or it just wasn’t possible for your family to consume it all in time! I found an excellent article on USNews that lists the 15 best items to consider buying in bulk. If you have the space, go for it, as these are guaranteed money savers.
