Save the world & your wallet: buy in bulk
The costs of several household items seem to be increasing. Casual trips to the grocery store don't seem so casual as we'd prefer them to be. Because of the cost increase, it may be time to consider buying certain items in bulk to help reduce costs.
Buying in bulk means you're buying large quantities of one specific product in a single purchase. Shoppers often confuse buying in bulk strictly with getting the most of a single product as possible. But actually, the goal is to try and reduce the cost per unit of whatever it is that you're buying (per gram, oz., pound, etc.). In addition to bigger savings financially, buying household items like shampoo or conditioner in bulk is easy way to cut down one's plastic footprint.
Before planning on the bulk purchasing, it's important to know which types of items are worth it, and which are not.
NOT WORTH IT:
- Anything with a minimal shelf life (perishables, foods you can't freeze, etc.)
- Items that occupy too much storage space
- Goods that have expiration dates of less than a year
- Liquid Soaps
- Light Bulbs
- Toilet Paper
- Bottled Water
- Office Supplies
Bathroom supplies consist of several items that allow for buying in bulk. This becomes even more advantageous if you have drawer space in the bathroom(s).
As for savings, let's look at an example of Shampoo. Perhaps your typical bottle costs $10.00 for a 20 oz. bottle. With the power of buying in bulk, your exact preferred shampoo might be $50.00 for a 180 oz. bottle! That equates to a lot of savings. This is a no brainer if the storage space is available in your home.
A commonly overlooked reason to also buy in bulk is total trips to the grocery store. With items stored in your household, that's less trips, which means less gasoline and less wasted time
After you buy your shampoo in bulk, try doing the same thing for conditioners and liquid soaps. You can now even consider using a Shower Dispenser to utilize all 3 liquids much easier. Many of these liquids are available for sale by the liter or gallon. From the gallon, you can pour straight into one of the chambers of your Shower Dispenser.

Each chamber can easily be detached for refilling and cleaning. All the materials are rust-proof, and the large push buttons are designed to dispense the optimal amount of liquid.
