I have been meaning to go to Costco and stock up, thanks Savvy!

A great reminder, and incentive, to stop running into that expensive grocery store and brave the lines to save at a warehouse store. I also sometimes forget to figure in the sizes when considering how much I'm saving-for instance, that 24 bottle case of water at the grocery store turns into a 32 bottle case , and cheaper! at Costco. Same with those rolls of paper towels and t.p.- besides checking prices, be sure you check how much you really are buying.

I didn't realize that about the paper products, ella. I'll have to look more closely next time. I do only buy with the coupons from Costco, so I'm not sure if it would be cheaper or not that way. The hummus from Costco is so good- we get that, too! I do most of our shopping at Costco, and it works out well for us. We eat a lot of eggs, so we get those there as well. We just started doing milk, and for some reason it seems to have a longer expiration date than the grocery store, so it has been working fine so far.

Have to say that the only one that I disagree with is paper products. A 36 pack roll of TP at my Costco is like 20 dollars. I get it at Target for a regular price of 17, on sale sometimes for 16 & I just found it at my grocery store last week on sale for 13. Seven dollars is a LOT. I agree with everything else. Meat is a huge one. My fiance gets 5 large steaks for 25-27 dollars. Or a bag with 10 large salmon fillets for 17. Bags of frozen chicken breasts are also discounted. If you have a large family, milk and eggs are something you can also get in bulk. Unforch, we wouldn't use those fast enough. We get 3-packs of our favorite pasta sauces (they are large jars as well), cereal (two large bags of cheerios for 5 dollars - same as one large box at the store), dried fruit (enormous bags - 5 lbs of dried mango for 10 bucks), Bread, bagels, english muffins - if you have room to freeze are usually a pretty good deal, Large bags of potatoes, 4 packs of large artichokes, hummus, cheese, tin foil, garbage bags, frozen fruit (a small bag with three servings at the grocery store can be 4-5 dollars, for 8 you can get 20+ servings), my fiance gets 3-packs of frozen pizza for about the same price as one at the store, batteries, light bulbs, socks... and more. I check prices very carefully, so I know what's a good deal and what isn't at our store!
