I often wonder why people buy in bulk. If you have a large family and unlimited funds to spend at the time you see the bargain I guess it’s a great idea. It also helps to have room to store those cases of bargain priced items.
My problem when my kids were young was I never had unlimited funds and was lucky to be able to buy the necessities. Now that I have more disposable cash it”s just the two of us in need and no room to store bulk items in this 1145 square foot home!
We don’t need a 16 pack of paper towels or a box of 120 washing powder pods. The 480 count crate of dryer sheets would take me a year to dispose of and by then that nice smell would have vanished.
These were a few of the items pointed out to me by H as we walked through SAM’S today after checking on tire prices.
“Where would we store all that? We have no room,” I protested, as I steered him clear of the case of paper towels and a six-pack of filters for the air conditioner unit.
We slipped out the door as they were closing with only a 15 pack of apriums (an apricot and plum?) 3 1/2 pounds of plums, a carton of grapes, and 2 pounds of strawberries.
I guess H will be eating fruit salad for lunch all week!
