Three Benefits of Buying In Bulk
When you go to the store to buy paper towels, you probably get a pack of 2 or a pack of 4, which will provide paper towels for your household for a short period of time likely between a week and a couple of months. In fact, a lot of us purchase most of our household items and home cleaning products this way, in small quantities that we will have to replenish in a matter of weeks. It may seem like overkill to purchase a 15-pack of Bounty paper towels when the pack of 4 is immediately cheaper, but buying in bulk can be advantageous for many reasons.
1. Save Money
Buying in bulk ultimately saves you money. That smaller package of paper towels may be cheaper than the bulk package, but if you were to buy enough of those to bring you up to 15 rolls, it would actually be more expensive than the upfront cost of the bulk package.
2. Save Time
By buying in bulk, you’ll save yourself constant shopping trips. That 4-pack of paper towels doesn’t last nearly as long as the 15-pack, which means you’ll be replenishing your supply a lot more often. This strategy is great for many non-perishable products such as toothpaste, toilet paper, and diapers as well as many home cleaning products such as dishwashing detergent and laundry detergent.
3. Save The Planet
A significant amount of our municipal solid waste comes from packaging and containers. Buying in bulk is a small thing we can do to promote a healthy planet. The reduction in packaging materials needed doesn’t only help the planet, though. You’re also getting more product for your money.
