Any smart home maker can really attest to this: one of the smartest things that you can do when you’re grocery shopping is to buy in bulk. This is because you can really save a lot when you do so.
See, when the manufacturers price the things that they make (and sell), they incorporate this cost we call “overhead”. This counts for the electricity used in making the product, the raw material, the salaries for the people who made it, et cetera. The bigger you buy, the lower the overhead cost per unit will be, hence a smaller price jack up. At the end of the day, the price-per-unit is smaller.
So buy in bulk. Don’t be fooled by the new ads for sachet versions of your favorite products with flashy banners flying all around the mall. The smaller packets may look charming but they’re very costly when you talk about long-run consumption. They’re only convenient for travelling.
Moreover, if you buy in bulk, you’ll run out of the material for a longer time and so you will save in all the commuting and the expenses that go with going out of the house and getting to the supermarket to shop. What’s more, the best benefit is really convenience. Isn’t it just pure bliss when you know you’ll panic waaaay longer than usual? When you know you still have a year’s worth of your favorite shampoo sitting in your bath basket organizer? Or your favorite cookies will still last after a month of midnight munching?
So buy in bulk. We couldn’t have stressed it any less.
