Many Filipinos buy grocery items in small packs at the sari-sari store. They think that they get to save with it because they are buying only what they can afford. But in reality, you waste money in buying small packs because the bigger packs are actually cheaper when you compute it. Yes, you shell out a big amount at one time but if you compute the number of small packs to make up the big pack, you will find out that the former may cost more than double.
A word of caution though. Just be careful that you don’t get carried away with buying stuff just because they come in bundles or they have freebies, even if you do not normally use them at home. Otherwise, you will be buying stuff for the freebies and not really because you need them. So instead of saving, you will waste money again.
So the next time you go to the grocery, get the big packs for the things that you always use so that you will save money.
