I have a question for those of you who frequent places like Sam's Club & Costco. I just purchased a membership at Costco and was trying to figure out how I would use it. So, I'm asking my loyal readers. And by the way, if you are a lurker and are also a wholesale buyer, now is the time to "delurk"! I'm gathering information and you are a vertiable windfall of knowledge!
Here are the actual questions:
~What is your main purpose for the bulk buying?
~Do you just use it for things like toilet paper? or do you use it for meat, vegetables and clothing, too?
~Do you shop there every week? or do you do a once a month thing?
~And finally, how do you budget in a huge package of whatever, like granola bars? Do you just buy it whenever you run out or do you plan a great big shopping thing and get all the stuff you need, and eat lean the week before?
I know that your answers will largely depend on your personal situation and preferences, but I'm really curious to see how people do this and how I can make the most out of it and not wind up with 11 bottles of ketchup and a case of croutons or something.
