The More You Buy, The More You Save!
If there is one thing we learned from the pandemic, it is how to stock up. We stored up as much toilet paper and canned vegetables as we could get our hands on. The threat of low supply sent us into a panic, which was reinforced by near empty shelves every time we went shopping. We dove into the concept, “the more you buy, the more you save” full steam ahead.
Many, many years before the pandemic, my family was greeted with the signs “The more you buy, the more you save” every time we pulled into the garage. I’m not sure where my dad got these signs, but it was his motto in the grocery business. Buying in bulk was the basis for his warehouse type grocery stores. People used flatbeds for carts and marked their own groceries with markers (can you even believe it?) “Work a Little, Save a Lot!
The business model of buying in bulk to save, is alive and well in stores like Sam’s Club and Costco. In fact, consumers can save money by buying in bulk. The problem with this is storage, once the products are brought home. Most homes have enough storage for products that are being used. But, extra supplies are a problem.
