    Huggies are currently on sale at Woolworths (23c each) and they are cheaper than the price someone told me (can’t remember exactly).

    tbh i don’t think we’ve ever bought nappies at costco. it’s hard to know if they’re cheaper plus it’s not exactly the most convenient to get to for an item
    you need urgently like nappies.

    Good points, @Mum-I-Am and @turquoisecoast. I'll just go to woolies, at least I won't come out with a 2kg bucket of vegemite and 3 dozen cookies as well....

    We always get our huggies fr9m woolies coz dh gets them and he says they're cheaper but ive never verified that myself coz im too lazy to go to 2 supermarkets or even double check online. Could probably check out coles and woolies websites and compare and see what's on special each time you need some?

    For us it’s worth it, it’s over an hours drive (but everything is at least 30 minutes away from us and I drive 40km just to my kids school so I’m used to it). We get our dogs food from their super cheap, and they have a lot of organic stuff too. Fruit/veg is often cheaper but it’s always worth having Coles/woolies open on my phone to check prices.

    Check out amazon. We buy ours from there. Can buy in bulk and when they’re cheap they’re on par with woollies/coles on sale plus they are delivered to your door and usually with free shipping.

    We go twice a year and usually buy for us and the office :
    Toilet paper
    Paper towels
    Tissues
    Dishwashing stuff
    Garbage bags
    CLeaning products
    Dog food
    Pure maple syrup
    Organic chia seeds
    Herbs and spices
    Nuts
    Quinoa
    Panko bread crumbs
    Pretzels (DS loves their pretzels!)
    Cheese (Mersey valley and babybel are cheap)
    I sometimes find cool Xmas decorations, Halloween stuff , sometimes kitchen wear, toys (lots of LEGO and Disney stuff I haven’t seen in shops but it’s very hit and miss) and not everything is bulk

    I went there as a visitor to have a look, me and bf couldn’t understand what was so cheap and what we’d be saving, if anything it seemed more expensive, it was good for a laugh but haven’t been back since.

    It’s worth it for party stuff. Massive cakes for $29.99. If you’re catering a party their food is great and cheap. I go a few times a year.

    Oh I also LOVE Costco wrapping paper. You can get massive rolls (eg 20m) that are double sided so you essentially get 2 types of wrapping paper for the price of one. Also their single sided paper often has grid lines on the back to help people like me cut straight . It is good quality paper though and since I bought my first roll from there I’ve not bought any anywhere else since. Says a lot as I have a wrapping paper buying addiction
