    Default Costco

    What do you buy at costco and what do you keep away from? Cheaper there or supermarket.

    Nappies are cheaper so always buy there. Wipes not always cheaper but nice quality. Other things such as toilet roll, laundry powder etc. don't think food is much cheaper and usually I don't want to buy in bulk.

    I honestly haven't found them that much cheaper than buying items from the supermarket/ big w when on special ( and stocking up).
    I just got a 42 packet of dish washing tablets from bigw for $9.
    It could be because our closest is a 40 min drive ea way and the $60 membership fee is a turn off

    And we buy fish here. It's not cheaper than the fish market (about the same price per kilo), but they sell a whole side of salmon which we cut into our own portion sizes and vac seal and freeze. Often the fish monger cuts are too small or too big for what we need.

    Their veges are sometimes cheaper, free range chicken is a good price, frozen berries, large hummus, jars of preserves/olives etc.

    The trick is to know what it costs at your local stores and don't get caught up in the stuff they sample or have big signs on.
