BULK VS. BUDGET
Do you always get a better deal in bulk, or is it worth picking through the $1 offerings for the best deals? Costco built its business on the belief that there are better bargains to be found in bulk, but stores such as Dollar Tree and Dollar General buy in bulk as well, often breaking out their lots into $1 offerings with a lower unit price than what can be found at bulk warehouse stores. We went comparison shopping and found that paper towels, toothpaste, Post-its, and other bulk staples aren't always the bargain they appear to be.
