When you head off to the megastore for some prime bulk shopping, ask yourself a
few questions before you buy:
a.. Will I use all of this? Don’t buy enough aluminum foil to wrap the planet
if you don’t plan on doing so.
b.. Will this go bad before I can use it? The two-gallon jar of spaghetti
sauce is perishable once opened, so ask yourself whether you can stand to have
pasta every night until it’s gone.
c.. Do I have room for this? There’s nothing worse than having to store your
24-roll pack of toilet paper in the living room because there’s no room under
the bathroom sink.
d.. Is the quality good enough that I will enjoy using this product? For
example, some inexpensive paper towels you can buy in bulk are flimsier and make
cleaning up more of a headache.
Make sure you like the product you’re getting.
Bulk shopping can be great for purchases such as shampoo, deodorant, film,
toilet paper, beer, laundry detergent, coffee beans — things that won’t go bad
and don’t take up too much space. If you limit your bulk shopping to these
nonperishables, you’ll save money and time because you won’t have to replace
them as often.
