While bulk buying food may only be a necessity for restaurants and businesses, for most households there are plenty of everyday essentials which make sense to buy in bulk. In this article, we’ll take a look at the top 7 household products that you should be saving money on and buying in bulk. As well as looking at the type of products that you should be buying in bulk, we’ll also look at the top reasons that you should be buying wholesale.
1. Toilet roll
Top on our list for everyday essentials is the humble toilet roll. Rather than buying during your weekly food shop, stock up and save money when you buy it wholesale and ensure you’re never caught short again.
2. Laundry detergent
Unless you happen to be a student, then chances are having clean clothes is important to you. Stock up on laundry powder, detergent, and conditioner and you’ll never have an excuse to let the laundry pile up.
Why is it that batteries always seem to run out when you need them the most? From the television remote and fire alarms to torches and children’s toys, running out of battery power is a modern annoyance that can be avoided when you purchase in bulk.
As anyone that has ever fumbled their way to the toilet in the middle of the night without light will tell you, it’s no fun. Light bulbs are one of the many things we take for granted and notice the most when they go out. Being pitched into darkness is no fun no matter who you are. Make sure you always have a replacement on hand by stocking up at your local wholesaler.
From your favourite brand of shampoo and conditioner to your toothpaste, you’d be surprised at how much of these products you use each year. Not only will buying in bulk save you running out, but it will also help you reduce the price you pay per unit, helping to save you money over time.
6. Bin bags
An everyday necessity, big bags not only can be used for household waste but also come in handy for garden and house clearances, spring cleans and getting rid of unwanted items. Buying in bulk will help to ensure that you don’t run out of bin bags when you need them.
7. Toothbrushes and toothpaste
Did you know that you should be changing your toothbrush at least every 3 months? Make sure you always have a replacement brush ready by purchasing a wholesale box of toothbrushes. At the same time also remember to stock up on toothpaste, especially as its one of the essentials which are forgotten the most while shopping.
Now we’ve rounded up the top products let’s take a look at a couple of reasons that you should buy items like these in bulk.
Better for the environment
One of the biggest advantages of buying in bulk is that it is better for the environment with significantly less packaging compared to their smaller equivalents. Transportation costs will also be lower as instead of taking multiple trips, a single trip will see you stocked up with the items you need for a longer period of time.
