Do you know the rock bottom price that you have paid for an item? Would you recognize a magnificent deal if you came across one, or are you in such a hurry that you just go into the store, buy the brand you like and get out because you're tired and you still have laundry to do when you get home?
I've been in both scenarios, but being in the place of where you have a surplus, so that you can wait on your rock bottom price is fantastic! The laundry detergent pictured here on top of my washer was purchased for $1.50 a piece. While at the store today I meandered over to the detergent section to discover that detergent is $5.99 - on sale!! Just this one item purchased at the rock bottom price was $4.49 cheaper!!! That amount multiplied over the course of a year at 2 bottles a month is an average savings = $107.76 just on that one item!!! Imagine if every item that you purchased were configured that way. That you would be able to save ½ to 1/3 of your money that was slipping through the cracks due to disorganization or simple lack of time.
I've been pondering this.....what are the benefits of buying at rock bottom prices, not even including coupons, which would multiply the savings further... Is it possible when working a full time job to accomplish the no spend challenge and buying in bulk? I think it is. Actually once there is a stockpile, one can simply shop at home from the discounted surplus, rather than running to the store and paying full price.
