If I stack up.
I would safe for future use, some product cheap that I know I will be using, that has no expiration date on.

But on the other end, if I buy only what I need, I could use that extra money on something else.

What would you do?

I would buy some but not too much, maybe a few months' worth. You may see a better price later. Or you may need cash for something else. How easy is it to buy at that price? Some things go on sale regularly every month at expected times and you could wait for the next sale easily. Storage space is also important. Give an example of what you have in mind.

It's Oral-B toothbrush head. On eBay, it's actually hard to find a good deal on it, because there is many prices and different quantity
Those I bought in the past did not came back actually. It took me 2hof search to find that deal. But is cheaper than the dentist.

Can you afford to buy extra now at reduced price, and still pay all necessary expenses in the months to come?

IMO, if the replacement head is expensive, then go get yourself a cheap toothbrush at the drugstore or grocery, should only cost a dollar or two.

At some point the toothbrush handset will quit working, won't hold a charge. That happened to us. You would have to buy a whole new toothbrush set and it might be a different kind that did not work with the brushes you bought. There are other options that are not too expensive.

Depends on what it is....
For instance.... A number of years ago we got a deal on toothpaste by the case.. It is a brand we regularly use and like.. We have maybe 5 more years supply...

When fall holiday cooking special sales are on we buy brown sugar to last 1 sometimes 2 years..
You get the idea...
