The Hidden Cost of Carrying Inventory

Whenever we’re about to run out of paper towels at home, we pick up a 12-pack at our local warehouse club.

While the per-roll price is better when we buy them by the dozen, we only currently need one roll. So that means we have to store the remaining 11 rolls, taking up lots of shelf space in the pantry and tying up money that could be spent on something else that offers a bit more immediate gratification, such as frosty adult beverages, for instance.

Storing 92 percent of a case of paper towels at home isn’t truly a burden in terms of space or money.
