Some people buy large shampoo bottles thinking that it will cost them less money as compared to the Sachets. So let’s debunk this myth 😉
Spending on these Shampoo bottles is absolute waste of money. Don’t agree? Let’s do simple maths:
Bottle quantity is 180 ml and is priced at Rs.110 ( Original price is listed as Rs.155 and then striked-through to portray it as a discount of Rs. 45 which is again a marketing gimmick to attract naive customers).
Now if you divide the quantity of shampoo with its price you will get the quantity per unit price as-
= 180/110 → 1.64 ml of shampoo for every single Rupee you spent. Simple, right?
Now see the same simple maths for the same product, but in a Sachet instead of a bottle.
This sachet is for the same product of Pantene and is priced at Rs. 3 per packet of 7ml quantity (quantity is 7ml, couldn’t find a pic of quantity but can be verified )
Quantity of shampoo per unit price:
= 7/3 → 2.33 ml for every single Rupee that you will spend. It means you get 0.69 ml quantity of shampoo more for every single rupee. Hence, it is proved that you get more quantity in Sachets not in bottles which is the common notion.
I want to make it clear that this answer is just to debunk the myth that buying in bottle saves you money. I know some people will still go for a bottle instead of a sachet because it is easier to use (relatively) and they are now so used to it to even change the habit.
The saving is quite minuscule but as the adage goes: A penny saved is a penny earned. Just another perspective.
