Stocking up on important items can be a great idea. If you can find some slamming deals and save yourself a ton of money, it’s definitely a win-win, right? Not necessarily, sometimes you can actually waste more money in the long run than what you saved by snagging the deals! It’s similar to how sometimes coupons can make you broke. What do I consider stocking up? Buying mass quantities of necessary home supplies or groceries that you may not need right now, but will (hopefully) use sometime in the future.
