Want to save money? Don’t bulk buy!

Want to save money? Don't bulk buy!  You can save money by buying in bulk - if you do it right. But most of the time, households are better off just managing their cash flows.

Ok, you got me. That isn’t really accurate. You can save money by buying in bulk – if you do it right. But most of the time, households are better off just managing their cash flows.

First off, yes you do get a lower price (per unit, that is) by buying in bulk. But it’s not that straight-forward.

And good personal finance decisions often can be analogous to what a responsible company would do in similar situations. Taking stock of your personal net worth is pretty much a company’s balance sheet. And assessing your cashflow is like a company’s income statement.

And since companies buy in large quantities, it makes sense that we should do so if we can, right?

Actually, no.
