Frugal Tip Friday 8/15/08


Yeah!! It's now super easy to link your Frugal Tip back here!! Look over the right sidebar and you will find a convenient box with the code giving you both the button and the link back!!!

My tip of the day is:

Buy in bulk only if it is something that you need. Buying everything in bulk is not necessary. Some bulk prices have a higher unit price than buying a couple of boxes of cereal or baby formula. Carrying a calculator to the store with you can aid in figuring up which is the best buy. Join a shopping warehouse if you frequently buy bulk items.

I love this tip! We go every quarter to stock up on cleaning supplies and paper goods. For everything else, it's like a game. I have this software that can compare prices at different store. I take the receipt,plug in the numbers and see if I "won":-) I usually do:-)

I'm not a big bulk buyer. We don't even have a sams club card anymore. I do stock up and the case lot sales at bowmans though. I love the new look of your blog, I'm so jealous. Was it very expensive? I really want one with three columns like yours.

This is a great tip. I try to stay away from Costco and Sam's because I wind up spending too much money on stuff I really don't need. Self control would probably help!

We let our Sam's club membership expire and didn't renew. Haven't missed it at all, and in fact, I am pretty sure we've saved money by NOT going there!

Too true! I know some go to Costco just for the deals and rarely come home with anything useful! I limit myself to once a month trips and have a strict list. With 4 kids it is necessary but I have to keep it in check :)
