The Case Lot sale is coming to the commissary. For you non-military folks, the commissary is the grocery store. A case lot sale means you can buy bulk items on sale. Think of it like Sam's Club or Costco.
Am I going?
Let me tell you why...
I went to a case lot sale once and vowed to never do it again. There were so many people. The line was wrapped around the store. Everyone was eager to buy a gigantic box of plastic bags and bathroom cleaner. Plus, I avoid going out during payday, and it's payday weekend. No thanks. No way.
2. I don't feel like I'm getting a deal.
Maybe I'm saving a few bucks, but waiting in line and dealing with hoards of people makes me want to be able to save at least $10 or more. Otherwise it's not worth it.
3. Lack of space.
Where am I going to put the huge thing of cleaner? If I buy the box that contains like 10 pizzas, how do I get it to fit into my freezer without the container falling on my foot whenever I open it? We're not the Duggar family, we don't have an extra freezer in the garage. We just have the one attached to the fridge and it's currently stuffed with ice cream.
4. I don't really NEED bulk of anything.
We're a family of four. Three, as of now, since my husband is deployed. If I bought my daughter the giant pack of yogurt, she probably wouldn't even get through it all before it expired.
If you end up going to the Case Lot Sale, happy shopping. I hope you don't have to wait in lines for hours as I did. And if you find a bulk package of chocolate, can I have some?
