It is well known that the bigger the size of the item you purchase, the lower the price you pay. This principle helps households and business settings purchase items of a size that lets them minimize on expenses while maximizing on savings.
How does this work?
Compare buying 1-pound butter and 4-pounds butter. The price of buying 4-pounds butter will be lower than buying 4 pieces of 1-pound butter. This has been the case with many other products.
This is because the cost incurred in manufacturing 4-pounds butter is lower than that incurred in making 4 pieces of 1-pound butter packaging. Shopping smart therefore means that you would rather buy a bulk than buy several single pieces to make a bulk.
Why seek to save funds through bulk purchase?
The best reason to save money through this form of purchase is that you get a chance to use the funds to purchase other needed items in the home. There is also an ease in storing one bulky item than several items in the home. The purchase of one bulky item also means that it is able to serve you for a long period of time, which the smaller measure of the product is not able to accomplish.
