Living in Tahiti can be a bit costly when it comes to buying food, household cleaners, paper goods, shampoo and toothpaste. However, I have found a way to save money each year by buying in bulk quantity. Now and then the stores on the island will run a monthly special. When I find a deal on shampoo, toothpaste, laundry soap, and other items that can be easily stored, I stock up.
What can you do? Here are a few helpful tips on how you can save money each week at the grocery store.
There is a way to control the price you pay for food, household paper goods, laundry soaps, and cleaners. By buying in bulk quantity and finding the best possible prices we can keep the price increases from impacting our personal finances. Items we use everyday can be bought in bulk quantity and stored at home.
Prepare some space in your home or garage for items bought in bulk that will not spoil. Buy three or four large storage bins to store rice, pasta, and grains bought in bulk. Make a list of items used in your home daily. Look in the newspaper for sale items or close out items that you use. Buying in large quantity saves money when stocking your home.
To save hundreds of dollars each year on items you buy weekly, buy in bulk quantity and stock up for two years. This takes careful planning and shopping around for items on sale and closeout prices. When you see a store going out of business, stock up on items you use most.
Excellent tips here...and just think of all the gas you'll save by going shopping less often.
Another advantage I think very important, is that shopping and storing in this manner frees up so much of your time, time you can enjoy by doing things you like, rather than walking up and down grocery store isles.
