You might think that by buying in bulk you’re scoring the best deal possible, but smart shopping expert Trae Bodge says that isn’t always so, and to keep in mind the membership fees of these big box stores.
What to Buy, and What Not to Buy, According to Trae Bodge
Liquid Cleaning Products: Not So Bulk
These tend to be less effective over time so they are best to buy fresh. However, powdered cleaning products have an unlimited shelf life, so if you like powder, go for it!
Luggage: Buy It in Bulk!
Most wholesale stores have high quality suitcases for less. You can get a two-piece spinner set, including a carry on, at a bulk store for around $200, while one piece alone might cost you up to $500 at a department store.
Vitamins: Not So Bulk
Keep in mind that vitamins do expire, and you mostly likely won’t finish all of them before the expiration date. If you really want to buy them in bulk, take a moment to calculate how long it will take you to get through them all, then check the expiration date on the bottle.
Diapers: Not So Bulk
Diapers are usually cheaper at a grocery store or a box store like Target or Wal-Mart. Even if it’s just a few cents, that can add up. Just make sure you really do your homework and compare prices.
Tires: Buy Them In Bulk!
Wholesale stores offer the most competitive deals on tires. Plus, you can get them fitted while you shop for the rest of the things on your list. You’ll save 10 to 20 percent on the same tires sold elsewhere.
