Buying large quantities is for some intimidating. I think that buying a larger quantity helps the household run more smoothly on several fronts. 1) A large quantity in one jar decreases clutter. For example one 90 ounce dish washing soap under the sink and one on the shelf is all that we need to store for a year or more. For a smaller family, one jar of dish washing soap in one purchase is sufficient. 2) Buying in bulk allows easier tracking because the total number of containers is smaller: 100 - 15 oz cans of tomato sauce versus 14 number 10 cans. Rotation and inventory is manageable. 3) Bulk prices save money most of the time. I was tickled to find the toilet paper on sale took 3 rolls and was 19 cents more per 450 sheets that the one roll at Sam's. I don't have to start buying 4 rolls at a time to save money. I can keep buying 40 rolls at a time only once a month. (I suspect this is not always the case and coupons may further reduce the cost.) $) There are fewer items on the grocery list so shopping is easier.
