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.

Done with Buy the Limit, back to Frugal Shopping

There certainly is a broad scope of topics here at Frugal Living Freedom. When you think about it, money permeates so very many activities in our lives, therefore, being frugal encompasses a wide range of interests, from being employed to taking a vacation, and just about everything in between. Enjoy the variety, pick up some new ideas, and start making frugality a part of your signature.

I'm a big proponent of being debt-free, and I mean entirely debt-free - no mortgage payment. It's not essential for financial freedom, but you'll love the feeling once you get there. If you didn't have a rent or mortgage payment, how much more could you do for yourself with your current level of income? I suspect plenty.

If you ever hope to see an abundance of wealth, you need to plug the hole in your boat. The wealthy don't necessarily make lots of money, instead, they know how to hang onto what they make, and make it work for them.
