Zana Milonaitis, 26, a customer service advisor from Yorkshire, has revealed how she's saved £2,500 bulk buying over the last six years.
Zana, a member of money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk, lives with her husband and two cats and has found that bulk buying doesn’t just save her money, but time, too. She began bulk buying six years ago and has since saved thousands of pounds.
Speaking to LatestDeals.co.uk, Zana said: “I started buying in bulk six years ago as it saves us a lot of money. I use websites and Facebook groups like Latest Deals and general early or late night shopping to find the best deals. “I buy household supplies, pet supplies, cleaning items and shampoos, conditioners, shower and bath items, and store them in my spare room and in cupboards. Sometimes I buy extra for family members as it works out cheaper for them too.
“The best pro is saving money. It also means that you have a few months before you have to go shopping again. “I look on Amazon, ASDA, Morrisons and more - it’s best to look around before you buy.
“I would definitely recommend looking around and pricing up first - some deals look good but when you look around you get a better idea of what you are looking for. “To find great bargains, I use LatestDeals.co.uk and cash back sites like TopCashback, Shopmium, GreenJinn, Shoppix and Receipt Hog. “Buying in bulk has saved me £400 over the last year, and around £2,500 over the last six years.”
Tom Church, co-founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, shared three extra tips for bulk buying. He says:
"Bulk buying is a great way to save money. Non-perishable goods work best: toiletries, cleaning products and tinned foods. Search on eBay and Amazon for things like dish washer tablets and washing powder. Often you can buy direct from wholesale suppliers for a fraction of the cost, or from the manufacturers themselves.
"One of my favourite websites is ApprovedFood.co.uk. This sells supermarket non-perishables for 80% less or more. Why? Because supermarkets wanted to clear out the stock. The products may be slightly over their best-before date (note - perfectly safe, not the same as use-by date) or just damaged packaging or just because they couldn't sell it.
"Also, apps like Too Good To Go are great. It's a marketplace for restaurants to sell leftovers at reduced rates. Last week I got £20 worth of YO! Sushi for £3.99."
