Ask the Readers: What Do You Buy in Bulk?
Editor's Note: Congratulations to Kristina, Maria, and Jillian for winning this week's contest!
Buying in bulk can be a great way to save money if you have a large household, but even small families and singletons can make it work by sharing the cost and goods with other families or friends. But beware! If the cost per unit doesn't check out, or you don't have the space to store it, or you won't actually use up all the goods before they go bad, bulk buying can be a deadly budgeting — or hoarding — trap.
What do you buy in bulk? What common bulk product do you NOT buy in bulk? Do you split bulk purchases with others? What strategies do you use to save even more when you buy in bulk?
