    Yeah, I mean I would think that you could get them on Amazon. I'm sure that they sell them somewhere. The only thing that I wouldn't like would be wearing the same shirt every day. If you were able to get them in different colors then I might think about getting them.

    I would love to also wear the same style in different colors. I know someone who was showing off his 2 Nike shoes that are the same style with different colors on Facebook as his profile pic. He's definitely bragging, but it is indeed cute to have the same item in different colors.

    Yes, I have to agree with you. I also wouldn't mind that, but more for workout clothing. I think that way, it would be so much better so that it would be cheaper. My parents would spend a lot on workout clothing because of the name brand clothing. So, I think that this would just be another good way to get some clothing cheap.

    There is a store here that specializes in bulk sales. You get around 10% discount when you buy 5 pieces of an item. But mostly, it is food stuff and the only clothing they sell are towels and towelettes plus some t-shirts. That store sells only imported items from several countries like US, China and some European countries.

    I love buying in bulk. I know though that there are some things you should not buy in bulk because it is actually like a waste of money. I think they say don't buy food in bulk unless of course you are having a party of some sorts. I think like tampons, shampoo, and other health hygiene items are great to buy in bulk. If you have a baby in diapers this is another thing to buy in bulk.

    Buying in bulk is an easy way to save some money, but I don't do it much. Often, in clothes stores buying in bulk just means buying lots of the same shirt, which I don't like to do. I wear different things, and I don't want 5 of the same shirt but in 5 different colors. Not worth it. But, sometimes if there are deals around the store (like spend £30 get £10 off), then sometimes I'll buy one or two extra items to get the money off. It can save you some money over time. The only thing I buy in bulk sometimes (same item) is underwear, that too only sometimes. Apart from that, I rarely bulk buy.

    I've done this in the past from time to time, primarily with items such as dress pants or dress shorts, or jeans - but I wouldn't do it with stuff like dress shirts. I've also bought plain t-shirts and athletic shorts in bulk as well, since I'm just wearing them around the house.

    But with things such as dress pants, I mainly only wear Dockers and they only come in a handful of colors, so I might buy multiple of some colors for a few reasons. One being I may want to wear a certain color one day, but it's in the laundry, so I will wear the backup pair. Or I might get a stain or a tear in a certain pair, so it's nice to have a backup pair. In fact, one of the things that got me doing this was my boss mentioned to me that you should always have a spare set of clothes with you at work in case you have any sort of accident, like spilling coffee on yourself or whatever. I never thought to do something like that but it made perfect sense.

    I have bought in bulk for particular items. I will buy socks in bulk, when possible, since it saves money, and I tend to go through a lot of socks. I will wear a pair for walking, then toss them in the hamper, and put on another pair. When I get dressed for bed, I toss those in the laundry, then put on a fresh pair if it's Winter or even sometimes in the Fall. I also tend to buy 18-packs of toilet paper, but if I had money and a place to store it, I would buy it in much larger bulk, as well as doing the same for paper towels, and the per unit cost usually decreases on those items the more you buy.

    I like to buy soaps, shampoos, toothpaste, dental floss, deodorant in bulk or at least stock up when they go on sale. If you shop at Costco you are already buying in bulk and then when they have those items on special you are getting a good deal. as long as the product does not have a shelf life I'll try and stock up on it to save some money. No need to pay full price for things and this way you never run out of some things.

    You can usually find clothes in the bulk to buy at big centers that sell wholesale for other stores. Depending on the store, you need to get 20, 50, even more clothing items to get a discount. I am not sure if it's worth it, because unless you really need to renew your wardrobe, or you were expecting to sell them to someone, it is a lot of clothing for a discount! The alternative would be to go with a few friends, have them all by with you and afterwards you split the costs.

    Buying in bulk will obviously get you discounts but it's only a good deal if you intend to wear the clothes you buy regularly enough to justify your action [buying them clothes in bulk]. However for me, since I mostly buy used clothing, buying in bulk isn't an option. Odds are whilst shopping I may won't like almost everything they have in stock and even if no discounts are offered you I pay less than what the clothes originally cost:)

    I will suggest you to go directly with clothing manufacturers for bulk or wholesale . You can find the products comparatively in cheaper rate then going with Amazon or eBay.
    I can suggest you some. you can take a look.

    I buy my grains, sugar and granola in bulk. It is cheaper to shop that way. I buy them at Sprouts Farmers Market in the bulk bin. They have page for you to put your food in and then you tag it and the cashier just weighs it. It's a pretty easy process.

    I'm personally not big on the idea of buying clothes in bulk. I know I've been known to like something so much that I've bought it in 2 different colours. But I wouldn't go above that, and don't even do it all the time. The only things I'd buy in bulk if I could are things like loungewear; thermal underwear, tank tops, vest tops and leggings.

    I wouldn't buy makeup in bulk either, because it has a shelf like. I don't mind some cosmetics in bulk, though.
