Buying in Bulk

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We don't normally go to stores that sell stuff in bulk for a number of reasons. We don't have enough storage space to keep things in bulk. Although we have been planning in buying some meats in bulk so we got a freezer when we moved here. The brand-new freezer is still sitting idly in the garage waiting to be filled with goodies. Another reason why we try to avoid stores that sell in bulk is the temptation of buying some things just because they seem to be cheaper if we buy them in bulk even if we really don't have any use for them. Maybe if we have some kind of a buy and sell business then buying stuff like wholesale electronics won't be such a bad idea. That's how buy and sell businesses make money anyway. But for personal use, I just don't see the practicality of it for now.

There are things though that I buy in bulk every now then. My lotion would be one of them. My reason is simple...the lotion I use not cheap when bought at a regular price. So, I wait for the store's sale season like semi-annual sale then grab as much as I can. They cut the price by 75% so it's really worth it. As a matter of fact, I did just that. I now have a year's supply of my regular lotion. Now I can sit back and relax while waiting for their next sale. Ha!
