If you hang out on my Facebook you know that I hit our Costco occasionally.
Many of your comments let me know that it is one of your favorite places to shop also.
When we are there, I am trying to remember what the cost of many products are in our Walmart/local groceries vs. Costco’s prices.
Costco is usually cheaper but Walmart wins out on several basic items as well.
So, how do you remember when you are in a large warehouse store what Walmarts prices are vs. Costco?
I’m not so organized that I carry coupon books or price charts, although I wish I were. I do carry a phone with a camera though and today that was put to use.
Want to see our price comparison “tip” of the day?
Before I share, may I just say here that my hubby, bless his heart, canNOT take a picture in focus for the life of him.
He cannot on my good camera.
He cannot on my not so good camera.
He cannot even on his iphone.
He cannot take them in the rain. He cannot take them at a game….
He cannot take them in a jam. He cannot take them Sam I am. (I had to go with it.) ; )
Note: No, I am not pregnant, although this shirt that I felt was hiding my big hind end, does give that impression. Great.……..
When we are at Costco I am always trying to remember what this or that product cost at Walmart. This time….I took photos of the price sticker under the product of a few of our favorite “staples” at Costco.
I can take pic’s. of the same items at Walmart (next time I am there) and compare them when I get home.
Then I shall make “notes” in my phone to remember.
I want to make sure the “units” prices are the same and if not, break it down so that both prices are compared via the same unit.
Do you pay attention to the unit prices when you are shopping?
That in itself is a HUGE money saver.
Is there a website that already has these answers and I do not know it?
Would you do this to see if you are spending too much on some of the warehouse items?
Think it is overboard?
Think it can save you money?
I would just like to make sure some of the items I pick up at Costco are worth buying in bulk vs. Walmart prices.
But I believe I will be the only on photographing.
Think you could use this trick?
Have another money saving trick you could share?
I would love to hear!
