Attention Costco shoppers: buying in bulk isn’t always a good idea. Sure, there are plenty of items at Costco that are amazing deals. You’re getting an incredible value when you choose the famous hotdog and drink combo for lunch before leaving the store, and you can even save on things like travel and movie tickets, but not everything is a good deal.
Here are 8 items that experts say you should be wary of buying at Costco.
First of all, the box of cereal is at least double the size you’d get at the grocery store. They might make it seem like a good deal, but unless you have a big family who eats a lot of cereal, it’s probably going to go stale or expire before you eat it all. Plus, if you pay attention to store sales, you can probably find it cheaper at a grocery store or a big box store like Target or Walmart.
We love our coffee, but coffee tastes best when it’s fresh. If you’re buying a huge Costco-size quantity, it’s probably not going to taste its best by the time you get even halfway through it.
- Condiments and Sauces
Take soy sauce, for example. Are you really going to use that much soy sauce before the expiration date? It’s not a good deal if you end up throwing most of it away.
