Some of the best ways to save money is to buy your items in bulk. Stocking up when an item is on sale is a great way to save a lot of money. Sometimes you can find discounts on discounts and that’s always a win-win for the consumer.
You don’t have to be a big company to get discounts, you don’t really have to buy a lot of products in bulk just the ones you need. If you go to your local Sam’s Club or BJ’s you can really save a lot of money. Combining items are on sale with coupons from the manufacturer you can really make a killing. The savings allow you to buy more items when they go on sale.
If you don’t have a big-box retailer in your area you can always find places online that carry big discounts. For years now I’ve been searching wholesale auctions on eBay to see if there’s anything I need. Items that use over and over and over again and you know you need you can usually find in bulk. There are big warehouses online that need to clear inventory and you are a beneficiary of that. They need these items out of their warehouse ASAP.
Items such as toilet paper, shampoo, laundry detergent are just a few of the easy things to get online and save money. if you have the space I would recommend buying all these items in large quantities and storing them. I have a dedicated space in my attic where I keep items such as paper towels, paper plates, napkins and other paper products that I know I will use. I can imagine how much money I’ve saved over the years by buying in bulk.
You can also find these types of deals by searching on craigslist, but they are harder to find. you can score a local deal on Craigslist, you might get lucky and find a warehouse at closing and needs to liquidate their inventory. This is a home run when you can find it. I kind of enjoy the hunt for these types of bargains.
Another popular item that you can buy in bulk as party supplies, you are eventually to throw a party and need this stuff so you might as will buy it in bulk and have it around. I know it sounds crazy, but parties are expensive so you have to save money and cut corners when you can.
With the price of food going up every day, you need to save when you can. Buying food in bulk can save you a lot of money. Last time I went to my local BJ’s I stocked up in cereal, I bought five huge boxes of Cheerios, Apple jacks, and cocoa puffs. I now have enough cereal to last me for months. Buying in bulk this way also save you a lot of time as you make less trips to the grocery store. This also saves you money on gas, and wear and tear on your car.
You can also stock up on meet and keep it in your freezer, frozen meat last for months on end. It also gives you many choices of what to cook for your family.
