Kmart Warning - Buying Bulk Not Always Cheaper

Hello There;

Just throwing a note out there to let everyone know that you should be careful when shopping at Kmart and buying items that aren't packaged by themselves.

On more than one occasion now, I've noticed that buying the bulk packs of single items actually turns out to be more expensive.

Last night it was confirmed again when I went to go buy toothpaste and found that buying two single tubes was actually cheaper than the "smart buy" double-pack.

Just a heads up to be careful and take a look at the prices before you buy.

Not only at Kmart; that practice is widespread. Beware the "Buck-apiece or two-for-five-dollars!" specials, especially at Plaza Extra.

This is sorta like using coupons doesn't always save you money when the off brand is cheaper. This is all stuff you learn going to the store with Mom. 🙂 Wish we had coupons down here...
