[quote=Rebecca New]I know one family who has a card and everyone in the family uses it because they give the person with the card a list or go with her to buy. To me this is dishonest, and I don’t care how much I would save, it is not worth the dishonesty.
Are you sure this is against the rules? My wife uses my card all the time. It has my name and picture on it. They just ask for her ID and she’s never had a problem. I thought they extended to immediate family.
As for saving money, I love Costco. For saving time, forget it. It takes forever to get in and out of there.
We are one of those who have limited space for storage. I use Costco for baby needs, meat, and the ocasional specialty item. For canned or box food, I go to a dollar store and save way more there. I got lucky and found a dollar store with good quality products. For bread and produce I go to the local grocery store.
I found this division of shopping saves us about $350 a month over regular grocery, and about $280 over shopping just at Costco.
Oh yeah, they have the best pizza slices at the snack bar, and you don’t have to go inside to get it!
