Gone are the days when buying in bulk guarantees savings.
My brand of laundry detergent is on sale right now for $4.88/25 load bottle. So yesterday I went to the shops to pick some up. The larger bottle $16.89/ 54 loads was beside it on the shelf.
I did the math:
Small bottle – 25 loads @ 4.88 x 3 = 14.64 & nets 75 loads
Large Bottle – 54 loads @ 16.89 x 1 = 16.89 & nets 54 loads
3 small bottles total $2.25 in savings and 21 more loads, significant!
Guess this proves the old adage, “Bigger is not always better” or in this case cheaper.
