Everyone has items that they purchase frequently for themselves, their household, their children or their pets. Running to the store every week for these items is time consuming and can be expensive, depending on what you are purchasing. Fortunately, there are a number of ways that can be used to reduce the cost of these frequent purchases. Here are some easy to use methods for save more money on the items you purchase frequently.
Buy In Bulk
One of the best ways to save money on frequently purchased items is to purchase those items in bulk. Prices are generally cheaper when items are purchased in large quantities, so save a substantial amount of money when you purchase food products that will not spoil quickly, such as rice, dried beans, and pasta, in bulk quantities. Paper products, batteries, and other consumables also tend to cost less when you purchase larger units. Stores such as Costco, Sam’s Club, and GFS marketplace are good locations to find bulk pricing on the items that you purchase frequently.
Use A Scheduled Delivery Service
Using a scheduled delivery service can also help you save money on your regular purchases. Today, there are scheduled delivery services for everything from razors to diapers to ingredients for full meals. Using these services will often save you a considerable amount of money over purchasing the items from other retailers because you are committing to a contract to have a company provide you with items on a regular basis for an extended period of time. For example, PetCircle will give you a discount of around 25 percent for scheduling an automatic delivery of dog food, cat litter, or other commonly used pet products.
Check Out Deals Sites
There are a number of deals sites on the internet that offer reduced prices for the things that you may need for your home. Purchasing the items that you need from these sites can typically save you between 30 percent and 60 percent off of the price of purchasing the items at local retailers. Some of my most frequent purchases from deals sites include extra large packs of batteries, citronella candles and bracelets to keep away biting insects, and cleaning supplies. It is important to review the shipping costs of these sites before making your purchase to ensure that the shipping costs will not boost the price you are paying back up to retail prices.
