Bulk Buying Bargain!

I love Costco just about as much as I love alliteration! And, no, not just for the samples! (But let's be honest here...if you go at the right time, the samples are basically a free meal!)

Anyway, there are certain things I always get at Costco because they're cheaper:
  • toilet paper
  • soap
  • shampoo and conditioner
  • my hubby's razor refills
  • deodorant
  • butter
  • yogurt
  • chicken
Not only are they cheaper to buy in bulk there, but they are things I can stick in the freezer or that are nonperishable so the fact that they are in bulk is ok for just the two of us.

Other things I stay away from because I know I can get them cheaper at the grocery store, like cereal for example. And since it's just the two of us, I tend not to buy produce there because it just goes bad before we can eat it all.

So anyway, I went to Costco the other day and noticed something that I've never bought there before that is significantly cheaper than the grocery store...MILK! Holy cow! ;) I usually pay $3.50 for a half gallon at the grocery store and it was $2.05 for a whole gallon at Costco!!

$2 for a gallon of milk! Unbelievable!! I usually only need to go to Costco once every one or two months, but since it's just 5 minutes away, I may go to just get milk!
