- By purchasing in large quantities, I am removing trips to the grocery store or market for refills on everyday items (examples include diapers, eggs, toilet paper, juice, chips) This in turn saves on gas.
- By making less vehicle trips to the store, I am removing emissions from our air.
- The items I purchased ARE cheaper purchased in bulk versus purchasing in the stores. And I can prove it. One example is my favorite salsa at Whole Foods costs $3.99 for 16 oz. At Costco, I got 30 oz. of the salsa plus a 16 oz. tub of 3-bean dip for $5.99. I also got a package of Huggies Size 4 200-ct. diapers for $40. This is better for the price per diaper than anywhere else I have seen.
So although I bashfully admit to buying massive quantities of food and toiletry items that our family will take forever to go through, I really believe that this was a wise choice:)
