    Costco or commy?

    Advertisements
    Where do you shop? I have been back and forth on this. We don't have a membership yet. I hate to get it if I am not going to shop there. Is it more expensive to buy groceries and your basics there?

    I don't have the space in my house to shop at Costco (or any other warehouse club), except my freezer. So it's all commy for me.

    I had a costco membership but let it expire and I thinking of renewing. I can go to the grocery store and spend 200 bucks and then have to go back in a week or so. I can go to Costco spend 300 and dont have to step foot back for a long time. I dont buy things like produce because we dont eat it that fast and wind up going bad but everything else is wonderful for us.

    Oh everything I did go I would have to stuff my freezer but I am really considering a deep freezer before I renew my membership. If you have kids it may be a GREAT investment.

    At my parents house we have a huge freezer. So they like to go to Sams Club and Costco.

    For produce we go to a Farmer's Market or Trader Joes. We eat a lot of veggies and fruit.

    DB ONLY goes to Costco when he's buying mass things of protien mixes and dog food for Huck.

    We don't have a Costco here. We have Sam's. We use it for certian things like water (bottled) and some snacky things. For the most part, we don't use it for everyday things.

    also, the commy is right down the road. I don't waste as much gas if I only shopped at one place. We purchase things when on sale at all stores. But must be a good sale. albertsons was AWESOME yesterday.
