I get e-mails every once in a while where people ask the age old question- is buying in bulk cheaper?
We get into discussions about diapers, formula, toilet paper, coupons, drug stores and all kinds of outliers.
This morning while I was in Food Lion I saw one of those things that makes me stand behind my original thoughts- buying in bulk is NOT always cheaper.
I took this picture of a can of tomato sauce. It is 8 oz. Note the price.
Then I took this picture of a can of 15 oz of the same product.
Which one is cheaper- to buy two cans of the 8 oz or one can of the 15 oz?
Always be sure to pay attention to price when you grab things- bigger is not always better!
That’s not to say there aren’t good things to buy at Food Lion- check out the current Food Lion Deals!
