How often do you shop at a warehouse club?
When we’re short on time and our shopping lists are long, it can be tempting to just make a single stop at a warehouse club.
After all, Sam’s Club and Costco stock everything from groceries and cleaning supplies to electronics and clothing… often in bulk quantities and at low prices. Also, you should get your money’s worth from your annual membership fee.
Smart shopping move, right? …Well, not necessarily. While many warehouse club deals are reasonable, you might want to skip over some items. Frugal shoppers know that these outlets don’t generally accept coupons for discounts on items.
While you can save money on some pantry items and paper goods like toilet paper, when you’re buying in bulk, you can spend hundreds more each month by taking the easy way out.
Let’s take a look at the 7 everyday items stocked by warehouse clubs that you might want to pick up elsewhere.
