Buying In Bulk Is It Cheaper?
Popped along to Costco today to stock up on supplies, when I got home I decided to do a price comparison to see if it was actually cheaper to buy in bulk.
Quilted Velvet Toilet Tissue Costco 27p Asda 44p per roll
Princess Orange Juice Costco 65p Tesco £1.59 per Lt
PG Tips Costco £1.10 Tesco £2.29 per 100
Walkers Crisps Costco 12p Tesco 15p bag
Lurpak Spreadable Costco £4.89 Tesco £6.20 1kg
Fairy Washing Liquid Costco £1.38 Tesco £1.50 900ml
Saxa Salt Costco 32p Tesco 40p 70g
Dettol Multi Surface Cleaner Costco £1.57 Tesco £2.00 500ml
Dettol Anti Bacterial Spray Costco £1.19 Tesco £1.30 500ml
Ariel 3in1 25p Tesco 32p per wash
Sugar Costco 59p Tesco 79p kg
I used a price comparison site to compare the prices to what I paid
In total I spent £95.30 in Costco the same would have cost me £141.74
Saving of £46.44
For this shop it was defiantly cheaper, you really have to know your prices before you go along and not be tempted by the things you would not usually buy.
