A couple of you have emailed me about shopping at Costco. Honestly, I don’t do much shopping at Costco because I can’t really justify a gallon of cheese in my fridge or a 48 pack of coke. (well…maybe that one I could get away with ) Face it–Costco is all about bulk shopping. I do occasionally hop into Costco to purchase some items (that to be discussed later) but there are some items that I will NEVER be seen purchasing there–because frankly–I can get the same amount for a fraction of the price using coupons and a store sale. Here is my list:
Special K is priced at $7.99 for 32 oz. Many months ago, many of us were able to purchase 4 boxes free (48 oz) at Rite Aid. Already, I’ve saved $7.99 and the nice thing is that if I had more coupons– I would be stocking up even more without spending anything.
This 5 pack of Gillette Deodorant seems quite pleasing at $13.99 with a FREE Gillette razor. That makes each item $2.33. As most of you know, Gillette deodorant goes on sale at the drugstores for BOGO free. and there are almost always coupons for these making them less than a $1- Free.
Most weeks at CVS you can score two packs of Orbitz gum FREE. Why pay $8.99 for a 12 pack?
This is just my personal experience with Costco. I love Costco for bulk shopping but for me personally–i have found that these items and others are really just a waste of money!
Obviously, I do shop at Costco but for what? Stay tuned to see my Costco shopping list…
