Shopping in bulk

I just spent 300 dollars shopping at the bulk grocery store. I stocked up on school snacks for my daughter and other things. I feel like I spend so much when my bill comes up to that much at once but in the long run I know I saved cause the school snacks last 3 months. Do you shop in bulk do you find it saves you money.

I watch buying in bulk, sometimes it costs more than just finding a sale on them and stocking up. I do keep things on hand, and if someone has a really good sale, I buy extra. I tried the buying in bulk, but did not find it much of a savings.

There are I some items that I buy in bulk. These are toilet papers, shampoo, detergents, diapers, et cetera. I do not buy food in bulk mainly because of the lack of storage space. I find that buying in bulk can be cheaper though. Plus, it helps the environment because there is less waste. Have a nice day!

I do that here when I can. I also try and stock up on things when they go on sale here. Last week at walmart here they had my fav. soup for like 55 cents, its normally 89 cents. So I bought 12 of them. Its a great idea to save money. Take care there,,

I've learned that I can't shop in bulk for food. I don't have the storage space and there aren't enough people here in my family to use it all up. I do buy paper towels, toilet paper and a few other stuffs in quantities though. I have to store that kind of good in the closets though.

I do sometimes shop in bulk for certain items. Some things I use a lot, so it makes sense to buy them in bulk. Other items I rarely use and it seems a waste to buy so much of it if I am not going to use it right away even if it is a better price per item.

Hi, I love shopping when I have lots of money in hands to spend. I don't like to buy grocery or vegetables. I like to buy lots of food items, snacks , clothes etc. I enjoy shopping. When we buy in bulk the money is saved.
