Buy the Limit - and save more
Sometimes if you buy the limit - it's a way of stocking up, especially for things that will last a long time in storage at your house. It's one approach I take to save money on groceries.
I don't drink a lot of soft drinks, but I enjoy one every now and then. The trouble is, when I want one, I don't usually have one around. The solution of course is to have plenty on hand so I don't run out.
Recently one of the grocery stores had a sale on soft drinks, so I made my move.
The sale price was about 10 cents a can if you bought a case, with a limit of 12 cases. Well, it sounded good to me, so I bought 12 cases. It's just about all the cart will hold.
Now I'm set with soft drinks for the next year or so, maybe not quite so long if I have a party.
Be careful when buying in bulk like this. You need to select items that have a long shelf life. Canned, bottled and dried foodstuff is usually a good choice when you're going to "take it to the limit."
Also, rotate your stock and don't squirrel the food away to the point where you never think about using it. I have some "vintage" food, but you might not like the idea of canned corn that's 15 years old.
