Ladies are known for their affinity towards shopping. They could be said to even posses more skills for shopping than the rushed men who impatiently grab the first item that will closely fit the description of what they are after. Despite one’s sexual orientation, it is however very important to have some shopping skills; this is especially important for those involved in running businesses. The main purpose of business is to make profit. This is made by the difference of the selling price and the buying price. Having good shopping skills will greatly result in reduced buying prices. For example, when buying packaging such as padded envelopes to be used for mail; this could seem to be a minor expense but could greatly dent the company’s budget due to the frequency of the expense.

Companies today will all want to portray a professional look; they would also want their clients to see that they care for them and value their mail. To do this, the companies are opting to use padded envelopes over the other cheaper and less secure packaging options. Companies normally send out a lot of mail. They have many customers, associates, suppliers, legal representatives, health workers, service men etc. These people will every now and then be sent some mail from the company, this will result in thousands of mail going out from the company and thousands of padded envelopes will be used. Many padded envelopes will also mean greater expenses.

To mitigate the expenses accruing from the purchase of padded envelopes, shopping strategies should be sought in all ways possible. One of the ways to reduce costs when buying items is to buy in bulk, buying in wholesale quantities. This might mean that one might buy items that far exceed the quantity that is needed immediately but it is a strategy that is used if an item will definitely be used again in the future.

The advantage of buying padded envelopes in bulk is for the seller too! They are able to sell more in a shorter time! This is one of the motivations they have in giving better prices and offering bigger discounts. They will only have to deal with one buyer for so many goods hence reducing the transaction cost and the time that could have been spent dealing with multiple buyers. The buyer will also spend less time shopping, make fewer trips and in effect save on costs. Buying large quantities also gives one confidence on the availability of packaging stock.
